Beteendet gör skillnaden

IEA DSM projekt 24 har samlat ett omfattande material om vad beteendet spelar för roll i effektiviseringssammanhang. Deras ledmotiv har varit “Most of the time what we do is what we do most of the time. And sometimes we do something new

Det är fallstudier som presenteras med “storytelling” och det är höggradigt roande men pÃ¥ ett oroande sätt! SÃ¥ här sammanfattas Stockholms trängselskatter.

Once upon a time… there was the City of Stockholm, which was gorgeous but had way too many traffic jams.
Every day…more and more Volvos and Saabs tried to drive in the not-so-well-planned City (well, the Vikings didn’t have cars!) and people got very frustrated.
But, one day…the national and local governments decided to try to kill the behemoth that was the traffic chaos in Stockholm.
Because of that…a comprehensive congestion charge pilot was introduced.
But then! Car commuters who travelled in from the outside and (felt that) they had no alternatives, turned sour, for several reasons.
Because of that…the policymakers realised that they should also improve public   transport,  park and ride schemes etc to make it easier to travel without car.
So, finally…the improved social acceptability thanks to the comprehensive toolbox of measures enabled the politicians to implement congestion charges on a permanent basis.
And Stockholm’s air is almost as fresh as when the Vikings lived.
The End.

Klandra inte spegeln om Du inte gillar bilden

DÃ¥ och dÃ¥ kommer det kraftig kritik mot de energiscenarier som till exempel IEA publicerar i sina Ã¥rliga skrifter. Som senast den här frÃ¥n en organisation som heter Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) och har skrivit en rapport med det klatschiga namnet “Off Track”.

The International Energy Agency has wrongly guided governments into decisions about oil, gas and coal use that are inconsistent with the long-term climate objectives of the Paris Agreement

Men är det sant? Är det IEA som vilseleder? Så här förklarar IEA hur scenarierna konstrueras (jämför med bild nedan)

- New Policies Scenario of the World Energy Outlook broadly serves as the IEA baseline scenario. It takes account of broad policy commitments and plans that have been announced by countries, including national pledges to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and plans to phase out fossil-energy subsidies, even if the measures to implement these commitments have yet to be identified or announced.

- Current Policies Scenario assumes no changes in policies from the mid-point of the year of publication (previously called the Reference Scenario).

- 450 Scenario sets out an energy pathway consistent with the goal of limiting the global increase in temperature to 2°C by limiting concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to around 450 parts per million of CO2.

Två av de scenarier som presenteras är alltså reflexioner av vad som händer i världen och det som är på väg att hända till följd av de beslut som fattats i olika beslutsorgan (länder, samarbetsorganisationer mm). Det är bilder INTE rekommendationer!

Om vi inte gillar det vi ser måste vi kanske rätta till de egna anletsdragen. Men klandra inte spegeln!
