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.

CHANGING BEHAVIOUR was present en masse at the 2nd SCORE conference in Brussels this March. A paper on CHANGING BEHAVIOUR was presented by NCRC. Partners OEKO and GreenDependent were present in connection with related projects. Score is a European network for the research and promotion of sustainable consumption and production, in particular in the fields of mobility, food and energy. The event provided an ideal opportunity for networking, and co-operation was launched with many further projects. The conference proceedings can be downloaded here.

Collecting examples of European programmes

The CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project is collecting a database of European programmes to reduce energy consumption and promote energy efficiency. Also programmes promoting end-user applications such as solar panels or micro-combined heat and power production are included. We are also searching for examples of and ideas for innovative programme designs. The final product will be a freely available online database which will enable searching, sorting and comparison of programme results. Ideas for programmes to include are welcomed here!

Partners kicked the project off to a running start

A total of 30 people joined forces in Helsinki to kick off the CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project.  The kickoff meeting, with 13 partners from eight countries, as organized on February 5th.  A presentation by ECN gave us ideas about why behavioural routines are difficult to change, and why early DSM programmes faltered. We learned about interesting programmes all over Europe that are trying to reduce energy consumption and promote a low-carbon future.  Of course, we also planned our work for the first year, including a series of workshops to be hosted. Mr Grisel, EC Project Officer from DG Research, said he was very pleased with running start of the project, and has high expectations for it.
