Start/Stop Date:

The CHEETAH project
13:00 - 17:00 Behave Conference, Zürich, Switzerland
Focus Areas:
Household energy efficiency adoption behaviour
Type of Event:

2nd CHEETAH expert workshop 13:00–17:00 (pre-conference workshop at the BEHAVE 2018 conference in Zürich). Household Energy Efficiency Adoption Behaviour: Integrating Findings From Choice Experiments Into Energy Models

This workshop will present findings from a series of representative choice experiments in eight EU countries regarding household energy efficiency investment decisions and discuss their integration in various energy demand models. Incorporating insights from social science theories of decision-making, behaviour and diffusion, and accounting for individual preferences for technology characteristics, responses to policies, individual attitudes and household characteristics in this way, is expected to improve the modelling of technology adoption (appliances, smart thermostats, heating systems, insulation) and of the policy effects (labels, rebates, bonus-malus incentives).
