This report presents four scenarios for future living to guide energy industry planning. The scenarios provide forecasters, policy-makers and demand response specialists new foresights to anticipate plausible outcomes of emerging trends in the years 2030 and 2050. They have been specifically designed to highlight a component of energy industry scenarios that often lacks detail and data - how people will live in the future.

The report, which was developed by Monash University, in partnership with Energy Consumers Australia, Ausgrid and AusNet Services, represents the final stage of an Australian Research Council Linkage project. 

It outlines a vision and roadmap to support the energy industry in modelling the energy scenarios by adding a unique and rich consumer-centric perspective backed by research that is responsive to people’s priorities and needs.
