Research Fellow in Transport and Domestic Energy Choices

The University of Leeds is seeking for a post-doctoral Researcher to work specifically on the "Modelling residential and transport energy for downstream policies (ModeRATED Policy)" project, funded by the European Union's Marie Curie programme. The specific area of research for this post is concerned with modelling the trade-off between household and transport energy use. The researcher is expected to take academic ownership of large parts of the programme and make a strong contribution to the field. The researcher  will also contribute to the empirical component of the project, which looks at modelling energy related decision making in a broader context, especially the trade-off between transport and domestic energy use. 

Brief description of the project:

The overall goal of the proposed "ModeRATED Policy" project is to understand the impact and distributional burden of downstream policies, especially carbon trading at the personal or household level, in order to mitigate carbon emissions from the domestic sector (personal transport + in-home) of the economy, through developing an econometric demand model for joint consumption of in-house and transportation energy. The proposed project intends to make contributions to modelling in-house and transportation energy demand through developing an econometric demand model allowing for substitution between the energy consumptions in-house and for transportation needs of the households. Special focus will be on personal carbon trading as a policy to reduce emissions, and incorporation of an additional carbon budget in the theoretical microeconomic demand model.

In addition, intermediate to long term trade-offs in energy saving/carbon saving behaviour will be investigated and incorporated in the model. Since there is no existing 'real' world example of carbon capped behaviour, the project will also seek to understand potential behavioural responses through potentially similar real world examples (e.g. vehicle lease for a given cap in km per month) and through choice surveys. The results will significantly contribute to the current policy debate on the potential of downstream policies to help reduce carbon emissions from the households and thus reduce overall carbon emissions.

 

The Research Fellow is expected to contribute to the second paragraph above.
