Understanding influence networks using an agent-based model of technology adoption for commercial building retrofits

12 Nov 2019
Description

This paper describes a framework for evaluating the uptake of building retrofits under various government policy and behaviour program interventions aimed at reducing carbon emissions. The framework incorporates socio-psychological factors into an agent based model, applying diffusion and discrete choice modelling in evaluating the effectiveness of intervention programs, especially those involving direct subsidies (e.g. rebate to upfront costs, tax deductions) to facilitate the uptake of low carbon living practices. The paper presents preliminary results from application of the agent-based model to New South Wales building stock in a case study to understand the role of influence networks in the uptake of energy efficient retrofits.Read the full article HERE.Presented at ISORAP 2013, At Marrakesh, Morocco
