Personal profile

Research profile

My research is centered on housing, everyday life and consumption from a climate and energy perspective. It examines differences in household consumption practices and explains these differences within a perspective of theories of practice that emphasizes the importance of routines and technical infrastructures. In this research I document that the social organization of everyday lives means at least as much to the energy consumption of homes as the technical energy efficiency of buildings and appliances. I also research how new technologies such as private photovoltaic systems and smart home control of light, appliances and heat affect everyday life and energy consumption. I am a frequent speaker at national and international events and have been project leader of numerous research project financed by European and Danish research councils.
