Classical energy planning models assume that consumers are rational, which is obviously rarely the case. This paper proposes an original method to take into account the consumer’s real behavior in an energy model. This new hybrid model combines technical methods from operations research with behavioral approaches from social sciences and couples a classical energy model with a Share of Choice model. 

Combining BehavioralApproaches with Techno-Economic Energy Models: Dealing with the Coupling Non-Linearity Issue

Consumer behaviour is often complex and even sometimes not economically rational. Wrongly, the first techno-economic energy planning models assumed the economic rationality hypothesis and, therefore,

Addressing the Effect of Social Acceptance on the Distribution of Wind Energy Plants and the Transmission Grid in Germany

An approach is introduced to address effects of social acceptance in energy system models by comparing the influence of different distribution scenarios of wind energy in Germany on the expansion need for future transmission lines and shows that a socio-ecologic distribution of onshore wind installations according to a balanced burden of the German society does not reduce the grid expansion need significantly.

A qualitative evaluation approach for energy system modelling frameworks

This paper presents a qualitative approach to evaluate frameworks in a transparent and structured way regarding their suitability to tackle energy system modelling challenges and suggests three major property categories of frameworks with regard to their capability to tackle the challenges.

Preferred strategies to foster energy conservation behavior in Batam’s office buildings

Indonesia government has taking initiatives toward energy conservation behavior through regulation, policy and laws. However, the implementation of these laws is still lacking compared to other

Addressing Energy System Modelling Challenges: The Contribution of the Open Energy Modelling Framework (oemof)

This paper presents the open energy modelling framework (oemof) as a novel approach for energy system modelling and derive its contribution to existing challenges and concludes that there are remaining challenges that can neither be tackled by a model nor a modelling framework.

Retrospective simulations of heating consumption in French dwellings

Res-IRF is an energy-economy model of heating consumption in French dwellings developed at CIRED and calibrated against 2012. It is meant to project the evolution of the building stock and the heat

A Robust Share-of-Choice Model

In this paper, we propose an approach to take into account, in a robust way, part-worth uncertainty in a share-of-choice (SOC) model. More precisely, we extend the method proposed by Wang and Curry

A Qualitative Evaluation Approach for Energy System Modelling Software—Case Study Results for the Open Energy Modelling Framework (Oemof)

This paper proposes a qualitative approach as an useful supplementary to existing model fact sheets and transparency checklists and demonstrates the applicability by evaluating the newly developed “Open Energy Modelling Framework” with respect to existing challenges in energy system modelling.



Combining Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approaches to Energy-Economy Modeling Using Discrete Choice Methods

This work estimates a discrete choice model of the industrial steam generation technology decision from a survey of 259 industrial firms in Canada and shows how empirically derived estimates of parameter uncertainty can be propagated through the model to provide uncertainty estimates for major model outputs.

Markal, a linear‐programming model for energy systems analysis: Technical description of the bnl version

As part of a project to assess the value of new energy technologies, an international group of researchers created a linear-programming model of national energy systems. This model, MARKAL, is driven

Evaluation of a consumer incentive program for an energy-efficient product in South Korea

Because green products are expected to reduce environmental pollution, save natural resources, and protect public health, they are regarded as a useful instrument of sustainable economic growth.

On Behavioral-Environmental Economics

Traditional environmental and resource economics uses rational choice theory to guide the evaluation of alternative policy options to correct market failure. Behavioral economics, however, has
