MSc Thesis - Energy Relations: The evolution of our relationship with power
by Lena de Rouw
While the energy transition is often approached from a technical standpoint, this thesis recognizes the significance of social dimensions in shaping behaviors, attitudes, and governance structures. By adopting a cultural perspective of energy consumption behavior, the study aims to provide a holistic understanding of the transition process. Based on this social approach an intervention called the Forekast (an interactive electricity box) is designed to promote a proactive energy relationship. The intervention is evaluated in the context of Amsterdam-Zuid-Oost.
