Coursework Exercise 1To be completed by February 3rdThis coursework exercise relates to the paper by A. Meier, “How one city cut its electricity use over 30% in six weeks”, Proceedings of European Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ECEEE) Summer Study, June 2009. [NB For other background reading about the impact of disruptions of supply on communities, see also the paper on Vision by Ghanem et al “I think we need to get a bettergenerator”: Household resilience to disruption to power supply during storm events, Energy Policy 92, 2016]After reading the aforementioned article, answer the following questions.1.Several actions were adopted to reduce the energy demand, thus reducing the impact of the event. List, and very briefly describe (e.g. a line or two each), actions that involved:a.Technology changes (Choose three)b.Behavioural changes (Choose three)NB Some actions could be relevant to both technology and behaviour but make sure you have 6 different actions listed in total[6 marks]2.Discuss (approx. 1 page) how the lessons learnt in Juneau might translate to another city/town, in relation to encouraging energy efficiency. Choose just one single city (anywhere in the world) and, ideally, base your choice on one significantly different to Juneau. In particular, focus on how differences and similarities between that city and Juneau might affect the success of various measures, and therefore whether the approach in Juneau has widespread implications.
