EVES investigates reasons for different shopping decisions made by individuals and their corresponding energy use. Within an empirically founded behavioural model framework the project focuses on the individual decision process for shopping – from the choice of product and shopping situation to the travel decision and actual act of shopping. For six different shopping situations and different product groups energy balances are calculated, taking the following dimensions of energy consumption into account: passenger transportation, delivery transportation, storage and operation of shops. The energy model for the energy balances of shopping situations will be calculated with rucksack factors from different data bases. By developing different scenarios it is possible to generalize results for Austria, depict future shopping structures, identify different courses of action for a sustainable energy use and possible impacts of these developments.
