A parameterized and spatially explicit reconstructed palaeo-environment models available energy in the form of secondary biomass using reconstructed climate…
The environmental rebound effect: a new paradigm for an old challenge. The case of transport eco-innovation
What is the role of the rebound effect in achieving environmental savings from transport eco-innovation? Are traditional definitions of the rebound effect adequate in the context of transformative innovations and multidimensional environmental issues?
Unravelling networks of human mobility and exchange of goods and ideas from a pre-colonial, pan-Caribbean perspective
Environmental benefits in transport sector often disappointing
Eco-innovations like more economical cars do not generate the environmental benefits predicted by the manufacturers. This is the result of the so-called rebound effect, concludes Leiden industrial ecologist David Font Vivanco on the basis of new algorithms. PhD defence 3 March.
