Main Objectives
The aim of this event is to bring the latest research from economics and behavioural science on household energy decision making to private, public and non-profit sector professionals. The day will mix presentations of new academic research with panel sessions where attendees will interact and discuss major issues in household energy policy.  Symposium content will be accessible to practitioners, researchers, and post-graduate students.
Panel topics
  • How do we ensure that savings through improved consumer awareness of energy use (e.g. smart meters) are maximized?
  • What policies or programs (e.g. Winter Fuel Payment) are most effective in keeping the elderly warm in the winter?
  • How can different sectors (i.e. public, private, non-profit, households) contribute to closing the ‘energy efficiency gap’?  
  • Can more fuel poverty reductions be delivered through the Energy Company Obligations (ECO)
