Alongside research on social aspects of the energy system and the creation of scenarios, he works on agent-based simulations and the topics of lifestyle and life satisfaction.

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.
