Wolfgang Hauser studied Sociology at the University of Bamberg and Université de la Réunion. He gained his doctorate from the University of Stuttgart with a thesis on the relationship between private energy consumption and lifestyle.

His work focuses on the socio-technical analysis of the energy system and scenario building. In addition to the classical methods of empirical social research, agent-based modeling and cross-impact balance analysis are mainly applied. His main research interests in the field of CIB are the creation of hybrid scenarios and statistical scenario analysis.
