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.

Book review: Infrastructures of Consumption

van Vliet, B., Chappells, H. & Shove, E. (2005). Infrastructures of Consumption. Environmental Innovation in the Utility Industries. London: Earthscan. (see details)

Environmental policy has started to focus more and more on consumption. One aspect of this shift is the renewed focus on demand-side management in policies concerning utilities such as energy, water and waste. Policy makers often assume that more sustainable patterns of consumption hinge on the decisions and actions of individual households. Infrastructures of consumption questions the relevance of individualistic theories of consumption and the policy approaches they support.

Co-operating with the Intelligent Energy Europe project BEHAVE
Wednesday, 26 March 2008 12:40
BEHAVE is an Intelligent Energy Europe project that deals with similar subjects to CHANGING BEHAVIOUR. BEHAVE is a project organized by energy agencies from the Netherlands, France, Finland, Sweden, Greece, Spain, Bulgaria, Norway, the UK and Austria (see www.energy-behave.net).

The co-ordinator of BEHAVE, SenterNovem (NL), and one of the partners, Motiva (FI), are represented in the Policy Board of Changing Behaviour. This provides us a great opportunity to link up with energy agencies in different European countries. BEHAVE has recently published new interesting results on its website. We look forward to hearing more about the experiences learned in BEHAVE at our Tallinn workshop in November.
