Analyses options for sustainable transport including
alternative fuels, electric and autonomous technology, and innovative mobility
solution. The group applies both qualitative and quantitative tools and
evaluates policy options that support sustainable transport futures.
This research area primarily includes modeling and analysis of future energy and transport systems. Examples include how to design a renewable electricity system and how greenhouse gas emissions can be mitigated cost-effectively.
This research group addresses questions around current and future societal use of land and biomass resources, within a broad sustainability perspective.
The research group on sustainable consumption addresses a wide range of interdisciplinary research topics related to societal and individual consumption patterns, including carbon footprints, rebound effects, time use, well-being, and policy instruments.
The groups research aims at improved understanding of systems composed by interacting agents in society. This includes model development of energy systems transitions and bridges to more applied areas within the division.
Complex systems include theory and model development for analysis of collective phenomena in nature and society, for example in statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics, as well as in ecological, evolutionary, and societal systems.
The research group seeks to identify realistic strategies and scenarios for transitions to low-carbon energy systems, industries, food production, and land management systems using a combination of empirical, modeling and scenario work.
