BEHAVE 2020 - Energy Efficiency and Behaviour Conference

About the Event

BEHAVE 2020 is postponed to 21-23 April 2021 due to the corona pandemia.

BEHAVE 2020 is the 6th version of the biannual EnR event that focuses on the application of behavioural insights in energy efficiency. As an important conference for national energy agencies in Europe, BEHAVE provides a unique forum for policymakers, academia, industry and practitioners to share ideas and experiences in promoting effective solutions for energy efficiency improvements and climate mitigation.

BEHAVE 2020 will include plenary sessions and parallel sessions on Day 1 and Day 2; Day 3 will focus on poster presentations and side events. The papers will include two formats:

  1. extended abstracts (up to 1,000 words), which will be reviewed and, if accepted, published as conference proceeding;
  2. full papers, which will be reviewed and duly considered for a special issue in the journal Energy Policy.

The BEHAVE 2018 held in Zurich received 200 abstracts and attracted 330 participants. BEHAVE 2021 is expected to make another record high in participants and another three days of exciting discussions and networking..

Compared with previous years, the upcoming BEHAVE 2020 will have more coverage on developing countries, more significant presence of participants outside Europe, the private sector as well as experience sharing from international development agencies and the United Nations on integrating behavioural economics in international development assistance projects to developing countries. Given the latest scientific and policy developments, BEHAVE 2020 is also expected to contribute to the transition to a climate-neutral future.
