              Energy Fables: Challenging Ideas in the Energy Sector takes a fresh look at key terms and concepts around which energy research and policy are organised. Drawing on recent research in energy and transport studies, and combining this with concepts from sociology, economics, social... theory and technology studies, the chapters in this collection review and challenge different aspects of received wisdom. Brief but critical introductions to classic notions like those of `energy efficiency'; `elasticity', `energy services' and the `energy trilemma', together with discussions and analyses of well-worn phrases about `low hanging fruit' and `keeping the lights on', articulate aspects of the energy debate that are often taken for granted. In re-working these established themes and adding twists to familiar tales, this book develops a repertoire of new ideas about the fundamentals of energy demand and carbon reduction. This book presents a valuable and thought-provoking resource for students, researchers and policy-makers interested energy demand, politics and policy.

              Conceptualising Demand: A Distinctive Approach to Consumption and Practice (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This book addresses fundamental questions about the very idea of demand: how is it constituted, how does it change and how might it be steered? Conceptualising Demand focuses on five core propositions: that demand is derived from social practices; that it is made and not simply m...et; that it is materially embedded and temporally unfolding; and that it is modulated through many forms of policy and governance. In working through these claims, the book weaves concepts from the sociology of consumption, science and technology studies, policy analyses and social theories of practice together with empirical cases and new research into such topics as the rise of refrigerated foods, the emergence of online shopping, and the transformation of energy demanding services. This innovative book takes a fresh look at the very idea of demand, a concept that is often taken-for-granted, but that is vital for scholars and students of energy, mobility, climate change and consumption, and anyone interested in the subject.
