Task 24: Subtask 2 – Austria’s Energy Hunt & €CO2 Management

22 October 2015

This report highlights two in-dept case studies from Austria – the Energy Hunt (Energiejagd) and €CO2 Management. Both were projects undertaken within wider EU programmes and they tackled the same issue – residential energy use reduction, with very different approaches: The Energy Hunt was highly social, had a gamification element and was low tech; €CO2 management was based on the neoclassical deficit model (provide information and incentives) and more high tech in its feedback mechanisms. They both saved some energy but the Energy Hunt was arguably more successful, particularly in the participation and enjoyment of end users who were a more active part of the creation and implementation of the programme.


Task 24 – Subtask 9: IEPEC Beyond kWh Scoping Paper

26 August 2015

This paper, presented at the 2015 IEPEC conference in the US, is entitled “Exploring Deep Savings: A Toolkit for Assessing Behavior-Based Energy Interventions” and was co-authored by Dr Beth Karlin (University of California, Irvine, USA), Dr Rebecca Ford (University of Otago, New Zealand) and Dr Cynthia McPherson Frantz (Oberlin College, USA).

This paper argues for a more systematic and comprehensive approach to the evaluation of behavior-based energy interventions, and describes a preliminary toolkit that is currently being developed and validated in conjunction with the International Energy Agency Demand Side Management Programme (IEA DSM) Task 24 on Behavior Change as well as two large investor-owned utilities. The approach is informed by theories and empirical research on behavior change as well as a content analysis of 85 behavior-based energy interventions. It includes questions on: context (demographics), user experience (ease of use, engagement), material culture (what people have), energy practices (what people do), and beliefs around energy use (what people think). It forms the background scoping paper for the work that will be undertaken by Dr Karlin et al  and which is co-funded by PG&E and SCE during 2015-16. In 2017, we will validate the behavioral toolkit and its various modules in the participating Task 24 countries and develop any country-context specific updates.
