BEHAVE 2020-2021 – 6th European Conference on Behaviour and Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is the 'first fuel' for countries in the pursuit of clean and sustainable energy, more equitable energy access, and improved energy security. The effectiveness of energy efficiency policies and programmes depends on to what extent they can stimulate behaviour change by consumers and companies towards energy-efficient options.
