Since 2008 new long-term agreements on energy-efficiency have become effective in the Netherlands. Participating organisations of thirty-six sectors have agreed with the Dutch government to make efforts to realise energy-efficiency of 30 percent in the period 2005-2020 and 50 percent - as a guideline - before 2030. Higher education is...

European energy policy aims to shift the European energy market toward an increased focus on energy services based on end-user needs. This requires a close understanding of the role of end-users and their needs and practices. Our paper is based on a EU FP7 project called CHANGING BEHAVIOUR and focuses on interaction between energy users and...

The history of energy demand side management (DSM) projects shows that accomplishing lasting energy-behavioural changes is difficult. The CHANGING BEHAVIOUR project aims at a better understanding of energy-related behavioural change, in order to improve the DSM practice. The approach is one of continuous interaction between researchers and...
