So, what all this fuzz is about data analytics? Data analytics is am umbrella term used to describe a collection of techniques and tools for data modelling, data inspection and data processing. Their goal is extract insights from a large volume of data. For this purpose, there is a large number of techniques that can be employed such as artificial intelligence, data mining and statistical methods. Data analytics are very popular within enterprises since large businesses deal with huge amounts of data. Therefore, the data analytics market is a growing one and is expected to grow more in the following years.

PPC participates in the Horizon 2020 project EVIDENT. Through field trials, surveys and games, the project focuses on behavioural biases and heuristics that affect decision making in energy consumption. The results of the analysis will be used to evaluate and propose energy efficiency policy measures that will reduce energy consumption and boost energy efficient technology diffusion.

EVIDENT designed and started the implementation of the first field experiment based on the data provided by the CheckWatt. Efforts have been made to ensure that large representative samples are employed to ensure the generalizability of findings. At the same time, the representation of different socioeconomics attributes will further ensure differences across groups.

The EVIDENT project aims to consolidate all factors that influence consumers’ behaviour for a better understanding of the energy efficiency gap and for proposing specific policy actions. In this direction, EVIDENT will carry out a quasi-experiment related to the average pricing bias in order to evaluate how literacy levels and biases are related.
