Behaviour plays a crucial role in promoting energy efficiency, and understanding the causes and patterns behind behaviour is the key to successful energy efficiency programmes. The PLEEC Project “Planning for Energy Efficient Cities” – funded by the EU Seventh Framework Programme – uses an integrative approach to achieve a sustainable, energy-efficient, smart city. As a part of the project, energy reduction potentials have been both identified and assessed from a behavioural driven perspective. This has been achieved by exploiting the Best Available Practices (BAP) related to behaviour-driven potentials in energy efficiency.

This report introduces examples of behavioural interventions to promote energy efficiency in cities. The cases collected in 2014 represent behavioural interventions from different sectors of energy efficiency from the PLEEC partner countries: Denmark, Sweden, Finland, the UK, the Netherlands, Estonia, Bulgaria and Spain. The report is meant to serve as a catalogue or source of inspiration presenting various examples of good behavioural intervention practices to cities. It is up to the cities to assess whether similar measures could be implemented in their own cities.
