and his research group take part of PENNY project
(Psychological, social and financial barriers to energy efficiency), one of the new European projects funded under the H2020 program
. The project is coordinated by Fondazione ENI Enrico Mattei and the kick-off meeting will take place on October 13, 2016
The project aims at improving our understanding on behavioral mechanisms in energy efficiency, following an interdisciplinary and broad behavioural science approach. The project will provide an empirical and numerical assessment of the psychological, social, economic and financial factors that influence energy efficiency in the residential and industry sectors. By partnering with energy utilities and retailers in different European countries, the project will conduct scientific experiments (A/B testing) which will enhance the design of policies aiming at maximizing energy efficient behaviors.
DEIB researchers will contribute a platform for energy consumption visualization based on the use of gamification methodologies.
