Simulating Technological Innovation Micro Processes – Dr. Bert Droste-Franke speaker at the European Conference on Behaviour and Energy Efficiency (BEHAVE) in Zurich, Switzerland, on 7. September 2018
Tuesday, 11 September 2018
Dr. Bert Droste-Franke, head of our department energy and coordinator of the BMWi-funded project 'Network Analysis and Simulation of Innovation Dynamics for new Key Technologies in the Energy Sector' (InnoSEn), held a speech at the 5th European Conference on Behaviour and Energy Efficienc (BEHAVE) on 7th September 2018 at the ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences. The presentation "Simulating Technological Innovation Micro Processes - Towards Experience-Based Robust Policy Recommendations" was drafted in collaboration with the researchers Gabriele Fohr and Tanja Nietgen as part of the special session on „Modelling behaviour – behavioural models: How to integrate human behaviour into energy models?“
BEHAVE aims to bring together researchers, policy makers and practitioners to discuss problems and measures in the field of behaviours related to end-use energy efficiency and sufficiency and the adaption of low-carbon technologies. As such, it focuses on various fields of research, innovation and knowledge transfer. The conference also aims to facilitate the exchange of knowledge on sustainable energy behaviour in transport, buildings and consumption of goods as well as the individual and social acceptance of sustainable technologies (e.g. renewables). In particular, the conference acts as a platform to share multi-disciplinary research on new technological developments and best practices concerning understanding and influencing energy-related behaviours. Therefore, contributions to Behave 2018 provide theoretical knowledge, evidence-based research and methods as well as innovative practices related to fostering sustainable energy-behaviour.
