Big Policy Canvas Research Roadmap

[...] * Households and Practices in Energy use Scenarios (HOPES): agent based model aimed to to explore the dynamics of energy use in households. The model has two types of agents: households and practices. Elements (meanings, materials and skills) are entities in the model. The model concept is that households choose different elements to perform practices depending on the socio-technical settings unique to each household. The model is used to test different policy and innovation scenarios to explore the impacts of the performance of practices on energy use.
