The transition to a low-carbon society includes new prosumer roles linking renewable energy production and consumption by use of smart technologies. To guide this low-carbon transition, new theory development on the role of technological systems in everyday life is needed. eCAPE will contribute with this by further developing theories of practice in three directions:
- The importance of gender and social structures
- The role of the ethical consumer in developing new practices
- The inclusion of non-humans as carriers and performers of practices.
Structures and actors in households’ everyday practices. Illustrating the three approaches from which theories of practice will be further developed in the eCAPE project.
