Energy Efficiency Vision 2050

How will new societal trends influence future energy demand in the European countries?

New societal trends are unfolding, such as digitalization, sharing economy and consumer awareness. They will highly influence future energy demand and, depending on their realization, enhance or counteract projected energy efficiency gains. Therefore, these trends have to be accompanied by policies with a strong focus on reducing energy demand (including Energy Efficiency First). This recently published article by Heike Brugger, Wolfgang Eichhammer,  Nadezhda Mikova and Ewa Dönitz analyzes quantitatively for all sectors how New Societal Trends interact with energy efficiency (policies).
