This paper examines three myths of the role of modelling in policymaking and propose practical ways of employing different types of modelling in a complementary way to increase policymakers’ understanding of residential energy demand, consumption and services. It also makes three concrete recommendations for developing future interdisciplinary work on integrating social and technical models for informing policy.
