ENERGISE book launched!

An online book titled 'Energy Demand Challenges in Europe - Implications for policy, planning and practice', edited by Frances Fahy, Gary Goggins and Charlotte Jensen (2019) is available HERE. Edina Vadovics, Scientific Director of GreenDependent also wrote a chapter titled 'The Energy Challenge in Hungary: A Need for More Complex Approaches' (Chapter 8).

In the ENERGISE project, energy use practices of 300+ European households were challenged in autumn 2018 to change practices related to heating and laundry. After data collection, analysis and comparison of data is underway. Fore more information please visit http://www.energise-project.eu/

'Abstract of Chapter 1 of the book: This opening chapter calls for greater attention to energy demand challenges in Europe. It argues that many obstacles and opportunities in achieving the so-called energy transition are social and cultural in nature and require interdisciplinary solutions that go beyond efficiency approaches. We provide an overview of the ENERGISE project that aims to achieve greater understanding of the social and cultural influences on household energy use, and to develop appropriate responses and recommendations for policy-makers, practitioners and future academic research. The chapter concludes with a brief summary of the structure of this book, including an introductory overview of how energy demand challenges are understood, and how this relates to the types of solutions that are proposed in each of the ten European countries studied.'
