Abstract

The well known Energy Trilemma provides a useful framework for considering the three main broad objectives of energy policy, and the trade-offs involved in trying to address them all. It is however inherently supply focused with attention focused on what energy industry can do. What is missing is a focus on the individual needs and choices that form the demand side of the energy problem. We therefore propose the introduction of a demand side trilemma, which considers and illustrates the main drivers of the consumers' decisions regarding energy consumption.
