Wednesday 14.00–15.00 | CHEETAH provides evidence for effective policies 

Organiser: CHEETAH project
Room: Mediterranee (Plenary Room)

CHEETAH is a Horizon 2020 project that will provide empirical evidence for the effectiveness of policies such as energy labels or subsidies for the adoption of energy-efficient technologies in households, relying on representative choice experiments in eight EU countries. Employing engineering-economic and macro-economic models, it also explores the effects of micro-level decision-making and of energy-efficiency policies on EU residential energy demand and on macro-economic variables until 2030. It includes a survey of more than 15.000 households in eight EU countries. (Read more)

Thursday 15.00–16.00 | Energy sufficiency: Living well, within the limits

Organiser: CREDS/UKERC
Room: Porquerolles

The session will present work we developed for the ECEEE sufficiency project, and reflect more broadly on sufficiency themes being addressed across the conference. The session will be interactive, with participants invited to undertake short exercises about sufficiency and efficiency. The overall aim of the session is to introduce ways of thinking about sufficiency, to question what it may mean, and to whom, and to stimulate debate about whether, and how, this concept could form the basis for future policy making.
