A lifestyle oriented energy demand model named ELSA (Energy and Lifestyle Simulation Approach) is introduced. The model comprises modules for energy consumption at home and energy consumption of private cars. Next to this so-called direct energy consumption the indirect or embodied energy consumption of non-energy household expenditures is treated in a separate module. In addition to energy requirements energy related emissions are calculated and separated by demand side and supply side factors. 14 figs., 13 tabs., 21 refs.
