Modelling Households and Practices in Energy consumption Scenarios (Modelling HOPES)

In this seminar, I will be introducing a prototype of the WholeSEM HOPES agent-based model. We are in the process of building this model to achieve a twofold outcome. Firstly, we seek to refine and clarify important concepts in Social Practice Theory (SPT), and then to model energy consumption as a by-product of social practices performed at households (e.g., washing clothes, watching TV etc.). During the seminar, the HOPES model will be presented in a show-and-tell format to elicit feedback/suggestions for further development.
