The Jevons Paradox Unravelled: A Multi-Level Typology of Rebound Effects and Mechanisms.

This article, written by Steffen Lange, Tilman Santarius and further colleagues in the Journal of Energy Research & Social Science, develops a novel typology for the analyses of the rebound effect. It presents a typology that introduces an important differentiation between the rebound mechanisms which generate changes in energy consumption, and the size of such changes, called rebound effects. The typology is populated with eighteen rebound mechanisms from the literature.  This innovative and robust rebound typology aims to establish common conceptual ground for future research on the rebound phenomenon and for developing rebound mitigation policies.
