Renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies are rapidly entering the global marketplace with the potential to disrupt and leapfrog a century of electricity generation, distribution, and consumption infrastructure. Insights into future energy patterns underpin the selection of technical and nontechnical policies, from electric grid planning to tax incentive structuring. The advent of granular spatiotemporal energy data streams, the availability of large administrative datasets, and an expanding knowledge base of decision-making models beyond the rational choice framework present a compelling opportunity for computational scientists to push the state of the art in innovation diffusion research.
This symposium focuses on challenges related to the wide-scale consumer adoption of clean energy technologies. Consumer-focused clean tech covers a broad scope of products and services including distributed energy generation and management (for example, solar panels, battery storage, and load shifting), usage analysis (for example, smart-grid enabled metering), and energy-saving technologies (for example, hybrid and electric cars, CFL and LED bulbs, and Energy Star appliances). There are economic, social, cognitive and technical challenges and issues that underlie adoption of this diverse set of technologies.
