Mobility Behavioral Science
NREL's behavioral science research takes a holistic, human-centric approach to examining urban patterns, with a focus on the interactions among people, mobility, the built environment, and energy systems.
NREL's innovative research improves the collective understanding of how people will respond to technology transitions and dynamic new mobility service offerings across spatial and temporal scales in diverse and varied communities across the nation. Ultimately, it sheds light on the way people will adopt (or fail to adopt) scientific, technological, and policy innovations and how this, in turn, affects urban sustainability and resilience.
