Exploring how new societal trends could shape energy efficiency and demand
Digitalisation has the potential to fundamentally change the way things are currently performed. While most digitalised processes are getting more and more efficient, not all of them are designed in a way that reduces energy consumption. New societal trends empowered by digitalisation such as shared economy, autonomous driving and low-carbon circular economy could lead to an increase in energy demand if they are not countered by measures with a strong focus on saving energy. The goal of the EU-funded NEWTRENDS project is to identify and quantify how new societal trends may affect energy demand. To achieve its goal, it will combine qualitative and quantitative cross-sectoral modelling and explore how energy demand models can be improved to represent new societal trends.
