Abstract

How can models for the simulation of actor behavior be used in policy advice on measures to support the development and diffusion of sustainable technologies? A corresponding simulation model already exists for analyses of technology development (SKIN). With reference to this model, it is discussed how the combination of empirical and simulation methods can increase the robustness of the simulation results. For actor analyses on technology diffusion, corresponding simulation models have yet to be developed. The article outlines some conceptual foundations for the development of such models.
