Energy sufficiency and rebound effects. Concept paper
Nov 2018 – eceee concept papers, Overview & framework, Potentials & modelling
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?
