Consumption ≠ Behaviour Rezaei, Maryam

Abstract

This paper, intended as a literature review of energy behaviour studies, was produced as a component of my comprehensive exams. It provides a critical review of the ways in which energy behaviour has been conceptualized in this literature and highlights the insights from these studies, while suggesting that a practice theoretical approach to the study of energy use might be more appropriate for the understanding of household energy use than approaches that equate behaviour with consumption and expenditure.
