Background

TEMPEST-project addresses the question of how transition in the transport sector can bring about a more efficient and sustainable use of energy - critical to reduce energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and overexploitation of common natural resources.

Lately a trend has been recognized where individual ownership of cars are replaced with collectively shared vehicles. There is an emergent need to explore and estimate how these transformation in car used mobility come about, and its potential to change travel habits and reduce energy in the transport sector.

The project will focus on this emerging transformation relying on innovation system theories, and a triangulation of different methodological approaches. Although spurred by new mobile technologies and applications, this is most of all a non-technical innovation that focus on changing travel practices.

Thus the project will apply theories that explore this as a socio-technial innovation operating on both a micro -and macro level. Transition theories and innovation system theories are combined with theories that analyse implementation of changing mobility practises on a household level.
