Behave 2016 – 4th European Conference on Behaviour and Energy Efficiency

8 – 9 September 2016

University of Coimbra, Portugal

Special issue

Behave 2016 aims to bring researchers and practitioners involved in end-use energy efficiency to share recent research, new technological developments and best practices on understanding and influencing behaviour related to energy efficiency. Research on behaviours associated with energy use plays a fundamental role to achieve a more sustainable energy system, in face of challenges such as security of supply, climate change and evolution to the smart grids.

Contributions to Behave 2016 are expected to cover a wide range of topics related with energy efficiency and behaviours, namely:

  • promoting sustainable energy behaviours: instruments, interventions and evaluation of behaviour change
  • adoption and use of low carbon technologies
  • behavioural potential to facilitate the smart grid and demand response
  • end-use energy efficiency in buildings and organisations
  • behaviour in transport and mobility
  • behaviour integration into energy modelling
  • multidisciplinary approaches to energy behaviours
  • energy policies for promoting behaviour change

Other topics related to energy efficiency and behaviours are welcome. Contributions reporting real-world studies are particularly appreciated.

The official language of the conference is English. More information can be found here.

IEA DSM Task 24 Workshop – REFRAMING THE ENERGY SYSTEM

7 September 2016, University of Coimbra

This workshop is designed to provide an overview to the wider systemic issues to do with behaviour change and to provide more hands-on solutions on how to solve them collaboratively.

It is led by the International Energy Agency Demand Side Management Programme’s (IEA-DSM) Task 24, called ‘Behaviour Change in DSM – Helping the Behavior Changers’.
