PhD Candidate

Kakau Foliaki


Project dates


Kakau is interested in exploring a wide variety of factors and how they interrelate to shape energy consumption behaviour of Tongan household. He plans to bring social aspects such as culture, tradition, religion, convenience into his energy research to contribute to the knowledge base of policy learning and energy behavioural change. He hopes this, in turn,  can enhance, reshape and improve future policies for improved energy efficiency in the residential sector.
