AbstractThis paper explores the link between consumer lifestyle choices and household electricity
consumption in Metro Manila, the Philippines. It addresses the topic of energy and
development through a multi-disciplinary and systemic approach that combines
environmental considerations with a social understanding of consumption. Consumption
tends to be treated at the geographically bounded level of a nation or a region, whereas
certain consumption patterns stem from globalization or the increased flow of people, ideas
and remittances. Trends in the “west” can influence lifestyle choices in the “south”, which
leads to challenges but also presents opportunities for transitions towards more sustainable
forms of energy consumption.
