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.
From theory to action? Researchers of science and technology meet CHANGING BEHAVIOUR
Tuesday, 02 September 2008 16:50
Changing Behaviour was recently presented to yet a new audience, this time of social scientists studying science and technology. Ynke Feenstra from ECN presented the Changing Behaviour project at the annual conference of the European Association for the study of Science and Technology (EASST) and the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) in Rotterdam, August 20-23. This year, the conference theme was Acting with Science, Technology and Medicine, so the action research approach of Changing Behaviour awoke a lot of interest. The presentation slides are available here

Organisation change guru explores responses to climate change
Sunday, 22 June 2008 18:05
Peter Senge is one of the world's most well-known authors in organisational learning. Together with colleagues Bryan Smith and Nina Kruschwitz, Senge explores how regional actors and entrepreneurial business are addressing climate change in a recent article in Strategy+Business.

"No one knows how an 80 percent reduction in global carbon emissions can be achieved in two decades, but it certainly won’t happen through minor adjustments in business as usual. Many individuals and organizations are leading the way now; many more will follow. And as they coalesce, innovate, and interact, their leadership will shape a world profoundly different from the “take–make–waste” industrial age society."
