Energy and Behaviour Towards a Low Carbon Future
Coordonnateurs : Lopes Marta, Henggeler Antunes Carlos, Janda Kathryn B.
Energy and Behavior: Towards a Low Carbon Future offers a succinct introduction to the major disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to this field, a critical examination of evolving quantitative methods to address this socio-technical challenge, and new areas where additional evidence is needed for interventions and policymaking. The book provides a primer for new entrants in the energy-efficiency and behavior field, particularly those taking a quantitative approach to the topic. Concurrently, it recognizes ecological economist Herman Daly?s insight regarding what really counts is often not countable. By acknowledging and exploring this ongoing tension in the field, the book provides a critical resource.

Carlos Henggeler Antunes, PhD is a professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computers - University of Coimbra and he is currently the Director of the R&D Institute for Systems Engineering and Computers at Coimbra (INESC Coimbra), Portugal. His main research areas are energy systems and policies, demand response, multi-objective optimization, and multi-criteria decision analysis.
Kathryn Janda, PhD is a Principal Research Fellow in Organisations and Non-Domestic Buildings in the Energy Institute at University College London, United Kingdom. She studies the role of organisations as both adopters and providers of sustainable innovations, including: energy standards for non-domestic buildings; the role of building professionals in driving 'middle-out' change; and implications of ownership and tenancy in the commercial real estate industry (including green leasing).
