Energy sufficiency: an introduction
Oct 2018 – eceee concept papers, Overview & framework
Energy sufficiency is a new concept for many people, and pictures representing new concepts can often help us develop a better understanding of them. This concept paper developed for eceee (2018) serves as an introduction to energy sufficiency. As part of this project, Sarah Darby & Tina Fawcett at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford, have developed the ‘energy sufficiency doughnut’ – a picture showing what we mean by energy sufficiency. The energy sufficiency doughnut is an adaptation of the sustainable development doughnut, developed by Kate Raworth for Oxfam (a UK development charity).
