Changing Behaviour is a project that aims to support change in energy use and energy services. We do so by applying social research on technological change to practical use. Our focus is on the interaction between energy experts and energy users: How can these different groups learn to understand each other better?

Changing Behaviour is an action research project. Researchers and practitioners work together to develop, test and refine tools for improved interaction that are sensitive to context, timing and the needs of different users and stakeholders.

Changing Behaviour is a European project that is funded by the EU 7th Framework Programme Energy theme (contract number: 213217). The project partners are from Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands and the UK.

Ten recommendations for policy makers on energy efficiency through behavioural change
Monday, 27 December 2010 13:50

CHANGING BEHAVIOUR has completed its work. Our main output is the Make Energy Change Happen toolkit:  http://mechanisms.energychange.info

We have also developed 10 recommendations for policy makers. They show how  policy makers can support energy efficiency through behavioural change e.g., by ensuring continuity, supporting intermediaries, combining interventions and addressing technical, economic and social issues at the same time.

Read our Recommendations for Policy Makers in various European languages.
