This book describes the development of a system dynamics-based model that can capture the future trajectories of housing energy
and carbon emissions. It approaches energy and carbon emissions in the housing sector as a complex socio-technical problem
involving the analysis of intrinsic interrelationships among dwellings, occupants and the environment. Based on an examination
of the UK housing sector but with relevance worldwide, the book demonstrates how the systems dynamics simulation can be used
as a learning laboratory regarding future trends in housing energy and carbon emissions. The authors employ a pragmatic research
strategy, involving the collection of both qualitative and quantitative data to develop a model. The book enriches readers'
understanding of the complexity involved in housing energy and carbon emissions from a systems-thinking perspective. As such,
it will be of interest to researchers in the fields of architectural engineering, housing studies and climate change, while
also appealing to industry practitioners and policymakers specializing in housing energy.
