Managing the rebound effect. This concept paper discusses how energy sufficiency and the rebound effect interact. Rebound effects can constrain the energy savings from energy efficiency improvements. The paper examines the nature of these effects, and ask the question: can greater use of sufficiency policies and actions help to tackle negative rebounds, or will it create rebounds itself?
Nov 2018 [eceee concept papers, Product policy]
How can energy sufficiency be practically applied in product policy, such as ecodesign and energy labelling? This report discusses this while asking if progressive efficiency is enough or if we need to go further to limit energy use.
Oct 2018 [eceee concept papers, Overview & framework]
Concept paper serving as an introduction to the energy sufficiency concept. As part of this project, researchers at Oxford University have developed the ‘energy sufficiency doughnut’ – a picture showing what we mean by energy sufficiency.
