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

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2020
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Paul Burger (paul.burger@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt Transforming today’s energy systems in industrialized countries includes 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, households seems to be quite inert in their energy consumption. 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. Thereby, households or individuals are not treated as energy consumers properly speaking but as consumer of energy services. This widens the horizon to also include people's („socially constructed“) wants.
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 or by promoting environmental values. Sociology is often not looking at individuals but at practices displaying social meanings in relation to „materials". Having revealed strengths and weaknesses of these approaches we will focus on 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/intervention strategies on multiple levels 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;
- 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.
