Join us in Brussels for the final CHEETAH conference on 26 November. This is the opportunity to learn more about CHEETAH’s extensive research on private investment behavior and to get the latest from the IEA on energy efficiency markets and the World Energy Outlook.

CHEETAH – Changing Energy Efficiency Technology Adoption in Households – has a strong focus on policy design. Its findings rely on representative surveys in more than 15000 households in eight EU countries.

Relying on choice experiments, CHEETAH investigates individuals’ technology choices in response to policies such as energy labels or rebates on the micro level. Furthermore, CHEETAH explores the effects of individual decision-making and policies at the energy system level on EU residential energy-demand for buildings and appliances as well as on macro-economic variables until 2030.

The seminar will feature presentations from CHEETAH partners on everything from individual household behavior to the implications on energy demand and the macro-economic implications. It will also feature a presentation of the upcoming IEA World Energy Outlook and a presentation of IEA’s Three Percent Club, a challenge to the world’s nations to increase the energy intensity improvements of their economies by 3% a year.
