Welcome
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.
Is good timing a matter of luck? CHANGING BEHAVIOUR presents some first insights
Monday, 20 October 2008 14:36
CHANGING BEHAVIOUR was presented at the 2nd Sustainable Consumption Conference at the Corvinus University of Budapest. The conference is a joint effort by various universities and associations, including GreenDependent Sustainable Solutions Association and Central European University. Mikko Rask from NCRC presented a paper on The Role of Timing in the Success of Energy Saving Programmes, which draws on our ongoing case study analysis of more and less successful programmes in nine European countries. The paper explores and conceptualises a much-neglected factor influencing the success of energy saving programmes, i.e., successful timing. It provides conceptual tools to address issues in timing, and suggests some implications for practioners. Mikko's presentation raised a lot of interest and provoked an intensive and constructive discussion on the manageability of energy saving programmes.
 
CHANGING BEHAVIOUR at European Roundtable in Berlin
Wednesday, 24 September 2008 15:54
CHANGING BEHAVIOUR gave two presentations and presented a poster at the European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP) in Berlin, September 23-25. This year, the conference was organised as part of the 5th BMBF Forum for Sustainability.  We were in good company, as energy efficiency in households, SMEs and the building sector was very prominent at the conference. Many new contacts were made and new ideas gained!
 
CleanTech developers need intermediaries
Monday, 15 September 2008 12:39
CHANGING BEHAVIOUR was presented at the Nordic Cleantech seminar organised by GreenNet Finland in connection with the annual Environmental Technology '08 Exhibition in Helsinki, September 12th. The presentation was given by Tiit Kallaste from SEI-Tallinn and Eva Heiskanen from the National Consumer Research Centre. In addition to examples of projects and intermediaries operating in Estonia and Finland, the presentation stressed the need for CleanTech developers to involve intermediaries in order to ensure that the new energy efficient technologies are actually adopted.
