Modelling individual decision processes and the influence of in-termediaries on the diffusion of energy efficiency measures and renewable energies in buildings (DiffusionEE)
The project aims to analyze decision processes with regard to energy efficiency measures and renewable energies in buildings. These decision processes are then illustrated in an energy system model for buildings. This should increase the predictive power of scenarios for the diffusion of energy efficiency measures and renewable heating systems in new and existing buildings in Germany. INVERT/EE-Lab is the bottom-up simulation model used as the energy system model together with the agent-based investment decision module INVERT-Agents. The results contribute to a better understanding of how companies and households make decisions. Based on this, recommendations for energy policy can be derived.
