The aim of the workshop was to further an interdisciplinary dialogue on novel conceptualization of energy demand, providing a forum to discuss inter alia new concepts that might not be familiar across disciplines (e.g., decent living standards, new shared urban mobility models, Society 5.0 concepts, digital convergence, social practice theory, time budgets and resource implications); new insights and research questions from different fields; and novel conceptualizations of demand and modeling approaches.

The results of the workshops discussions are documented on this website.

Contributions to the workshop discussions in form of presentations and statements/remarks are posted here with links integrated into the Workshop Agenda.

A Summary Text of the workshop discussions is posted here including also a list of participants shown on the picture below.
