43667-01 - Seminar: Changing Individual Energy Behaviour - Approaches and Strategies 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2019
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Paul Burger (paul.burger@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Transforming today’s energy systems in industrialized countries requires a substantial reduction of the total energy consumption at the individual level. Selected instruments have been found to be effective in changing people’s behavior in single domains. However, the so far weak success story on reducing overall energy consumption indicates that our understanding of the determining factors of individual energy consumption as well as of its change is far from being conclusive.
We will introduce different disciplinary approaches in the field of changing individual energy behavior to clarify the diverging perceptions of the opportunities to change the behavior. Regarding economics energy is often seen as a commodity and consumers will adapt usage in response to price signals. In psychological conceptions energy use can be affected by stimulus-response mechanisms and by engaging attention. Energy use in sociological approaches is largely invisible, energy systems are complex, and daily practices are significant. Here, the view is emphasized that people do not directly use energy, but carry out a range of activities or ‘practices’ that lead to the consumption of energy. And also educational sciences have a different understanding, where energy use is a skill that is learned through experience in specific situations. Having revealed strengths and weaknesses of these approaches we will move on and develop an interdisciplinary frame integrating different perspectives on the change of individual energy behavior. Finally, we will further investigate and discuss the prospects and limitations of different governance strategies on multiple levels of intervention that are directed at changing individual energy behavior.
Lernziele The class will
- learn on disciplinary approaches on changing individual energy behavior from economics, psychology, social sciences and educational sciences;
- reveal the benefits and the necessity of an interdisciplinary approach to understand changes in individual energy behavior;
- identify different governance strategies and levels of intervention to changing individual energy behavior.
