Introduction to EVIDENT
|GA number: 957117|
|Call topic: LC-SC3-EC-4-2020|
|Start date: 1/12/2020|
|Duration: 36 months|
The project has the following objectives:
- To create a framework for assessing the role of behavioural insights in energy efficiency using a wide range of case studies, experiments, surveys, in conjunction with state-of-the-art econometric methods and big data analytics.
- To develop a platform for raising energy efficiency awareness and support better decision making and policy implementation.
- To enable future research related to behavioural biases and heuristics in energy efficiency by creating a methodology and data hub.
- To contribute to energy efficiency policy implementation by evaluating and proposing specific policy interventions for increasing energy efficiency.
- To design and construct five large scale pilots across Europe, including well developed and developing countries in the energy efficient systems.
- To enable wide communication and scientific dissemination of the project’s innovative results to industry, energy communities, and policy actors.
- To design an innovative business model and conduct a cost benefit techno-economic analysis to strengthen the role of behavioural insights in energy efficiency policy interventions.
EVIDENT project will design and implement 5 different large scale use cases (pilot scenarios) for estimating the impact of several policy interventions proposed in the energy efficiency literature:
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.
