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.
New articles address learning and intermediaries
Wednesday, 22 September 2010 14:19

iStock_000009029081XSmall.jpgTwo new papers by ECN members of the CHANGING BEHAVIOUR team address learning and the role of intermediaries. Julia Backhaus' paper  Intermediaries as Innovating Actors in the Transition to a Sustainable Energy System, published in Central European Journal of Public Policy, examines how research and policy can support intermediaries in their valuable but often unappreciated work to reduce energy demand. Backhaus and colleagues have also examined the role of tools vs. personal interaction in the paper Learning in single & double loops – interaction as key to scientific & practical insights presented at the EASST Conference 2010 in Trento, Italy.
