EVIDENT intends to provide new insights in the energy efficiency policy innervations. EVIDENT results will be used to evaluate and propose energy efficiency policy measures that will reduce energy consumption and boost energy efficient technology diffusion.


EVIDENT proposes several different case studies under the framework of randomized control trials (RCTs) and surveys in order to define the main drivers of individuals’ decision making and to establish new relationships between energy consumption and other fields such as financial literacy .

Use case 1

Estimate the impact of energy consumption feedback to the consumers in terms of energy savings.


Use case 2

Estimate the relative effectiveness of interventions like peer comparison feedback.


Use case 3

Investigate the role of big data in assessing the impact of behavioural insights in energy.


Use case 4

Examine the relation of energy consumption behavioural biases with consumers’ financial literacy level.


Use case 5

Investigate and exploit energy demand curves.



Objective 1

To create a framework for assessing the role of behavioral insights in energy efficiency using a wide range of case studies, experiments, surveys, RCTs in conjunction with state of the art econometric methods and big data analytics.

Objective 3

To enable future research related to behavioral biases and heuristics in energy efficiency by creating through the platform a methodology  and data hub.

Objective 5

To design and demonstrate five large scale pilots across Europe, including well developed and developing countries in the energy efficient systems.

Objective 7

To design an innovative business model and conduct a cost benefit techno-economic analysis to strengthen the role of behavioral insights in energy efficiency policy interventions.

Objective 2

To develop a platform for raising energy efficiency awareness and support better decision making and policy implementation.

Objective 4

To contribute to energy efficiency policy implementation by evaluating and proposing specific policy interventions to enhance energy efficiency.

Objective 6

To enable wide communication and scientific dissemination of the innovative results to the industry, energy communities, and policy actors.
