Agent-based Socio-technical energy transition models

I think there is a lot of unknown territory in the interaction between different societal and technological domains. Some transition directions will lead to tremendously costly lock-in effects while other will accelerate coinciding technologies. Sector coupling and smart energy systems some of the most interesting new frontiers in renewable energy systems. However, I want to even widen this already broad perspective by integration transition theory, societal values and personal preferences in these models.
