Energy Demand Changes Induced by Technological and Social Innovations (EDIT-AIT)
The project "Energy Demand Changes Induced by Technological and Social Innovations (EDIT)" was awarded to Bangabandhu Chair, AIT by the Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE), Japan in December 2020.
The main objective of the project is to create a research community with a focus on end-use, demand-side perspectives that further dialogue and cross-fertilization of research and policy analysis through data, concepts and methodologies. The goal is also to develop service oriented bottom up demand model to help in providing inputs to climate policy analysis.
South Asian countries are expected to experience fast economic growth and infrastructure development in coming three decades. Most of the demand do not have historical path dependency and hard lock-in effect. This provides enough scope for planning for decoupled energy demand growth from emission growth. Such energy demand planning can have benefit of reduced cost of supply capacity expansion planning and synergies with near term SDGs Framework and SENDAI Framework.
