Energy Demand changes Induced by Technological and Social innovations - Low energy demand empirical and modeling work in a post pandemic world

EDITS2 is a joint project between the Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE) and RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment with the aim at collaborating on the empirical and modeling analysis of new disruptive trends of technological and social innovation for reducing energy demand. RITE and CMCC will develop the Low energy demand empirical and modeling work in a post pandemic world project.

General Objectives

The project Low energy demand empirical and modeling work in a post pandemic world aims at shedding new light on the impact of technological and social transformations on energy demand. This requires improving the representation of energy utilization in models used to evaluate climate and energy scenarios and to improve the calibration of the models based on big data.

Expected Results

A paper and two reports are foreseen:• Paper “Empirical analysis of the impact of the COVID pandemic on electricity demand patterns”• Report “Modeling the implications of smart working from home on buildings’ energy demand”• Report summary of synthesis working group activities
