KeyConcepts

PENNY will design scientific experiments in the domain of consumer behaviour in order to improve the development of future energy efficiency policies. The project will assess the role played not only by extrinsic incentives, but also environmental self-identity, social values, bounded rationality, cognitive misperceptions as well as energy literacy in promoting energy efficient behavior.

Saving energy with FUN

Saving scarce resources is necessary for a more sustainable future. In the context of energy, this can be pursued by complex interventions, such as renovation of buildings or purchases of appliances, but also through day-to-day change in habits related to energy use. Games are a powerful communication and collaboration tool, that can help people consuming energy in a better way. FUNENERGY is a tool that allows us to change the way we consume energy, through education and maybe with a bit of fun.
