Work Package 3

Consumer Surveys 

Lead Beneficiary: BC3
Work Package Leader: Ibon Galarranga

WP3 will design, conduct and analyse consumer surveys in all participating countries in order to examine the factors influencing consumer’s energy efficiency choices.


The specific objectives of WP3 are to:

- Identify the factors that are most relevant in determining consumption decisions for appliances (or machinery), transport and/or properties across different consumer groups (household, services, agricultural and industrial sectors) and geographical locations (Ireland, Norway, Spain, Slovenia and Greece)

- Advance the current knowledge on how different consumer groups (with special attention to gender) make energy efficiency investment decisions across different geographical locations

- Identify the most important barriers (financial and non-financial) to energy efficiency investments for different consumer groups and geographical locations

- Estimate the impact of the EU labelling schemes on energy efficient investments and barriers

The data collected in this WP from consumers will populate and refine (under WP5) the theoretical model previously developed in WP1 with empirical data from consumer decisions.
