Abstract

Obwohl die Hotellerie und Gastronomie einen bedeutenden Wirtschaftszweig darstellt, gibt es in der bisheringen Bundesrepublik Deutschland auf universitärer Ebene keine Einrichtung, die sich speziell mit den Problemen des Gastgewerbes auseinandersetzt. Eine intensivere Beschäftigung mit dem Hotel‐ und Gaststättenwesen erscheint gerade im Rahmen des Studienganges Ökotrophologie (Haushalts‐ und Ernährungswissenschaft) angebracht. Diese noch relativ junge interdisziplinäre Fachrichtung — sie wurde in den sechziger Jahren in das Leben gerufen — widmet sich vor allem hauswirtschaftlichen Betrieben, und zwar sowohl was die sozial‐ökonomische Seite als auch was die ernährungsphysiologische, produktionstechnische Seite anbelangt. Das Fach Ökotrophologie wird in Deutschland an den Universitäten Bonn, Giessen, Kiel sowie an der Technischen Universität München in Weihenstephan gelehrt. Teilweise können sich die Studenten weitgehend auf den sozialökonomischen beziehungsweise den ernährungsphysiologischen, produktionstechnischen Teil spezialisieren. Andernorts wird besonderer Wert auf eine breit angelegte, beide Hauptgegenstandsgebiete umfassende Ausbildung gelegt wie insbesondere in München‐Weihenstephan. Eine völlige Trennung erfolgt an der Universität Stuttgart‐Hohenheim, wo entweder Haushaltswissenschaft oder Ernährungswissenschaft studiert werden kann.

Abstract

Purpose

Energy scenarios have long been successfully used to inform decision-making in energy systems planning, with a wide range of different methodological approaches for developing and evaluating them. The purpose of this study is to analyze the existing approaches and classify them with a morphological box.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper builds upon the methodological literature on developing and evaluating energy scenarios and presents a morphological box, which comprises parameters describing the scenario properties, (energy system) model properties, scientific practice and institutional settings of energy scenarios. The newly developed morphological box is applied to four selected energy scenarios of the German energy transition.

Findings

The morphological box is a suitable tool to classify current energy scenarios. The exemplary application also points toward four challenges in the current practice of energy scenario development and evaluation: increasing complexity of decision problems, transparency of the scenario development process, transparency of the decision support process and communication of uncertainty.

Originality/value

The morphological box of energy scenarios helps researchers soundly document and present their methodological approaches for energy scenario development and evaluation. It also facilitates the work of analysts who want to classify, interpret and compare energy scenarios from a methodological perspective. Finally, it supports the identification of gaps between current practice and the methodological literature on energy scenarios, leading to the development of new types of energy scenarios.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine the arousal of negative consumer emotions as a consequence of fast food consumption among individuals with restrained food consumption. Furthermore, a moderating effect of socio-cultural pressure to buffer these relationships is positioned for the first time.

Design/methodology/approach

The field study is completed with data collected through an online survey among 353 customers by employing a random sampling technique. The collected data are analyzed through confirmatory factor analysis procedures.

Findings

The hypotheses related to the effects of fast food consumption on body image guilt and shame, body image guilt on planning diet and shame, moderator role of socio-cultural, in terms of shame, are accepted.

Research limitations/implications

A key limitation is data collected from individuals with restrained food consumption in Turkey which limits the generalizability of results to other countries and contexts.

Practical implications

The results call for paying attention to socio-cultural pressures that enhance shame.

Originality/value

The primary contribution of this paper lies in the fact that fast food consumption is scantly related to the arousal of negative consumer emotions. Furthermore, moderating effects of social pressures and Turkish context are also unique to this study.
