A dynamical network model for household energy use

We will create a dynamical network model that is explains household energy use, taking into account characteristics of and interactions between different household members. For this, we will take into account relevant house characteristics and socio-demographics (e.g., household size, household income, age and gender of household members), and psychological variables (e.g., environmental attitudes, social norms). Extending current research, we will measure psychological variables for all household members and take into account possible differences between household members. We will measure these variables, and household energy use, several times to model dynamics due to changes over time.
