Gossart, Cédric. 2015. “Rebound Effects and ICT: A Review of the Literature.” In ICT Innovations for Sustainability, edited by Lorenz M. Hilty and Bernard Aebischer, 435–48. Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing. Cham: Springer International Publishing.

This paper presents a critical review of the literature on the rebound effects generated by information and communication technologies (ICT). Following a discussion of the types of general rebound, including direct, indirect, and economy-wide, the literature on ICT-related rebound effects is critically assessed. The chapter suggests ways of overcoming rebound and lays out promising avenues of research to better understand and tackle rebound effects in ICT.
