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.

Athens workshop registration now open
Monday, 11 May 2009 09:44
On June 16th the CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project team comes to Athens, Greece for an event hosted by the Centre for Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES). The workshop aims, in particular, to engage energy efficiency practitioners from Southern Europe. You can read more and register for the workshop here.

UPDATE: we have received registrations for Greece, Italy and as far south as New Zealand. Join us to explore the southern dimension of energy conservation!

The Athens workshop is the last in a series four workshops to discuss the conditions for success and failure of energy saving projects with the intermediary organisations running them. We have learned a lot from the workshops. The workshop reports are available here.
