Behavioural science for energy and the environment

This research area assesses the behavioural elements which affect the decisions of individuals, corporations and institutions in the realm of environmental choices.

This research area assesses the behavioural elements which affect the decisions of individuals, corporations and institutions in the realm of environmental choices. The aim is to apply the insights developed in behavioural economics and social psychology to provide a more complete understanding of how environmental policies are developed. Research uses experimental methods based on randomization which allow establishing the causal relations between behavioural factors and environmental outcomes. These methods include laboratory and online experiments and field investigations. Possible applications will be to test how consumer behavior is influenced in energy saving decisions, collaborating with energy companies that are interested in improving their commitment and  services to customers.
