Abstract

Research on urban resilience is increasingly receiving attention by both policy makers and researchers. In the on-going debate, the focus is usually placed on economic and infrastructural aspects. Human factors, such as collective behavior change in the face of environmental threats or in the aftermath of extreme events, have up to present not been investigated extensively. In this research, we aim to include human factors and investigate behavioral reactions to a large-scale electricity black-out via means of social simulation. Our overall research question is: Can an electricity sharing system replace the electricity market, when supply is scarce and no market mechanisms exist anymore? To investigate possible scenarios of behavioral reactions we aim to develop an agent-based simulation model, and aim to hint to crucial implementation aspects for electricity sharing systems for emergency cases.
