Changing Behaviour


Deliverable 12 of the CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project provides a comprehensive overview of the six pilot projects carried out during the course of the project. The report outlines the scope and objectives of the pilot projects, as well as the target groups and interventions chosen. The document also highlights how the pilot projects evolved over time in response to feedback from stakeholders and input from the CHANGING BEHAVIOUR team. Furthermore, the report discusses the monitoring and evaluation of the pilot projects and includes stakeholder feedback.

Deliverable 13 presents a self-evaluation of the entire CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project. The report provides an overview of the project’s outcomes and offers recommendations for policy makers and intermediary organizations based on the findings. In addition, the document includes recommendations on how to organize action research and how to develop a toolkit or guideline based on the team’s experiences.

Deliverable 14 of the project, the Make Energy Change Happen (MECHanisms) Toolkit, is available online and aims to provide practitioners with practical tools to promote energy-efficient behaviors. The accompanying report, D14_toolkit_for_practitioners, provides insight into the development of MECHanisms and illustrates some of its features.

Finally, Deliverable 4 presents a meta-analysis of 27 case studies from various EU countries, examining best and bad practices in demand management over the past decade. The report provides an in-depth analysis of causes for success and failure, with a particular focus on the role of context, timing, and actors.

In summary, the CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project produced several valuable deliverables that contribute to our understanding of demand-side programs and offer practical tools for promoting energy-efficient behaviors. The project’s self-evaluation and meta-analysis of case studies provide valuable insights for policy makers and practitioners in the field of demand management.
