Governance, Infrastructure, Lifestyle Dynamics and Energy Demand: European Post-Carbon Communities - GILDED


The overall goal of GILDED is to identify social, economic, cultural and political changes which could help rural and urban households in Europe consume less energy.  GILDED is a three year collaborative research project funded through European Union Framework Programme Seven, running from December 2008-2011.


The focus of the project is on household consumption as a lens for understanding energy use patterns. In Europe, about 35% of all primary energy use and 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions come from private households. While technological innovations can reduce the energy requirement for specific activities, and make low-carbon energy sources economically and environmentally viable, their impact in reducing carbon-intensive energy use will depend critically on the lifestyle choices of local households. Otherwise, increases in energy efficiency may simply raise demand for energy-intensive products and services (e.g. cheaper home heating may lead to a rise in household temperature or more money spent on air travel). To permanently reduce energy consumption, low energy consumption must become a way of life.
