Households energy consumption and transition toward cleaner energy sources

1 Introduction

This article focuses on the factors that determine the households’ energy consumption and, the drivers of switching toward cleaner energy. The reasons for interest in this analysis are manifold. Indeed the most recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) shows that the increase in global temperatures could be as high as 4.8 degrees C by 2100 (GEIEC, 2014)[19]. In response to this report, an agreement was signed (COP21) to keep global warming below 2 degrees C. To a large extent, the increase in temperature is due to the steady increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the energy sector (IEA, 2015)[29].
