Changes in the energy consumption of private households due to the production and the use of renewable energies

In order to achieve the goals of the German energy transition changes in the energy consumption of private households are also required. In this context, efficiency, consistency and sufficiency strategies should be considered.

The talk presents the results of a study that dealt with the question of what effects the own production and/or use of renewable energies has on the energy consumption of private households. In addition to changes in everyday actions, the focus is also on rebound effects.


I´m a research assistant at the artec Sustainability Research Center of the University Bremen with a background in politics and sustainability. My focus is on sustainable (energy)consumption and rebound-effects.
