The Energy Cultures Conference, ‘Sustainable Energy Futures: Understanding Behaviour and Supporting Transition’ was held on the 6th and 7th July 2016 at Mac’s Function Centre in Wellington, New Zealand, and hosted by the Energy Cultures Research Group from the University of Otago.

The energy sector is facing an uncertain future. The demands of development contrasted with the constraints of global climate change, peak oil, and resource availability underscore the need for a long-term transformation of energy systems. Yet achieving a sustainable energy future will require action and support of multiple actors across a range of scales.

The purpose of this international conference was twofold: to share findings and conceptual advances from the Energy Cultures research programme; and to invite other research perspectives on energy-related behaviour and its role in transitioning to a sustainable energy future. The conference invited a broad focus on behaviour change that included households, businesses and governments; energy and mobility; and from single-factor to systemic change.
