Abstract Energy and climate change mitigation analysis rooted in economic relationships alone is largely disconnected from the advancement of well-being. We propose an interdisciplinary research agenda that relates energy use to individual well-being through consumption by building bridges between the social sciences, energy–economic models and climate policy analysis. Through these linkages, we may better characterize the potential for less harmful and more meaningful consumption that improves human well-being while reducing carbon emissions.
