Outline Activities
(1)Ms. Kayoko Kondo has long studied human behavior, social conditions that allow a circulating system to make the most of renewable energy and natural resources in local communities. Especially, conditions for biomass utilization's success and which based conditions for regional activation.
Further studied the formation of human behavior, which supports a kind of local community given above, pointed on participation in the communities and way of mutual relations.She is also active in the study of environmental education to help foster pro-environmental human behavior.
Regarding her social activities, she is dedicated to forming sustainable societies by participating in local governments’ environmental policy-making panels, or by supporting local residents in their communities.

Current and Past Project
  • Biomass utilization faces many impediments, such as initial and maintenance cost, effective collection of materials, use of byproduct, and coordination among concerned organization and local people. We actively conducted nation-wide field studies on local communities that are utilizing biomass. Regarding the utilization of food waste, questionnaire surveys were conducted to local governments across Japan which utilize food waste as a resource. Regarding a model of animal excreta utilization, a questionnaire survey was conducted to livestock breeders in Miyakonojo. Based on the results of these surveys, scenarios of biomass utilization were made for different type of models: food waste, wood waste, and animal excreta. Then, we discussed a format to verify the feasibility of our scenarios. After the mid-term hearings, we collected information of unsuccessful cases, and interviewed core people in the communities. We held a workshop on wood biomass, where we released our research results to the public and also had discussion with invited representatives from the communities that were leading in biomass utilization, such as Shimokawa-town, or Maniwa-city. Then, we made clear the challenges of biomass utilization and what would lead it to a success from a practical point of view, while examining the outcome of our research team.

8. Shiro HORI, Kayoko KONDO, Daisuke NOGATA, Han BEN, The determinants of household energy-saving behavior: Survey and comparison in five major Asian cities., Energy Policy, 52, 354-362, 2013.01, It is difficult to control household energy consumption through regulation. From a policy standpoint, it is particularly challenging to identify the factors that influence people’s actions. Moreover, whatever these factors are, they are unlikely to uniformly span multiple cities in the Asian region. In this paper, we conduct a survey of energy saving behavior to clarify the differences among such factors across five major Asian cities. The results from these surveys in Dalian, Chongqing, Fukuoka, Bangkok, and Ho Chi Minh indicate that global warming consciousness, environmental behavior, and social interaction significantly affect energy-saving behavior. Income and age also had weak positive effects on energy-saving behaviors.
Social interaction was strongly linked to energy-saving behaviors, particularly in the rural areas of Dalian and Chongqing. This result indicates that community-based activities impact energy-saving behaviors.
