About the Project

This project aims to understand and model the behaviour and preferences of African consumers in low-income communities regarding the adoption of low-carbon energy interventions. Using large-scale surveys (with help from project partners) and advanced behavioural theories such as choice experiments, structural equation modelling, the theory of planned behaviour, and the technology acceptance model, the research will identify factors influencing the adoption of renewable energy and energy efficiency measures. The insights will inform the design of tailored interventions that promote clean energy solutions, ensuring they are effective and culturally relevant. By leveraging networks and digital tools, the project will generate a novel dataset on consumer perceptions and preferences, ultimately contributing to improved energy access, sustainability, and economic development in low-income communities.
