EnergyBOR - Behavioural issues in decision making on energy efficiency

Title: EnergyBOR - Behavioural issues in decision making on energy efficiency

Principal investigator: Marta Lopes

Research team: Humberto Jorge, Hermano Bernardo

Dates start/end: 10-2016 / 03-2018

Synopsis

The behavioural dimension is presently recognised as a key factor in promoting end-use energy efficiency.  However,  tackling  behaviours  is  a complex  and  challenging  task  and  integrative research is required. This project aims to explore behavioural issues in decision making on energy efficiency through the use of behavioural operational research techniques, particularly in a residential and services setting.  The  main  task  is  focused on  assessing  and  establishing  the  most  effective  way  of communicating energy models to end-users and to informal energy managers, to promote a real comprehension of energy efficiency issues.
