Equivalences in Biological and Economical Systems: Peloton Dynamics and the Rebound Effect

Fig 1

Rebound ratio curves.

To illustrate, for curve A the initial cost (I) of the energy service varies between $1 and $200; for curve B a consumer’s maximum spending capacity (MSC) varies between $1 and $200. Curve C is the de-coupling threshold between the cost of the service as attenuated by the energy services savings quantity, and the consumer’s capacity to pay. The energy service efficiency is 0.08 based on [17], and the rebound is 0.22, based on data in [14], and Ecoeff is 0.9376 (curve D).
