The International Energy Agency and Users TCP are conducting this survey to inform the Energy Sector Behavioural Insights Platform.

In 2020, the Platform aims to develop a report highlighting global best practices in applying behavioural insights for creating more effective energy policies and programmes. Your answers to this survey will inform this report.

Through this survey, we would like to hear how your organisation uses behavioural insights in the design and implementation of energy policies and programmes aimed at increasing the uptake of energy efficient and clean energy technologies, and at influencing energy demand. This includes policies implemented by policy makers or programmes designed by energy utilities.  

We are interested in understanding to what extent the application of behavioural insights in the energy sector has gone beyond pilot projects and trials to reach full-scale policies and programmes. 

This survey should take you 40 to 60 minutes, depending on how many case studies you submit. By participating, you are contributing knowledge for smarter, more effective energy policy to advance the clean energy transition. Thank you for your contribution!

We understand that certain information may not be for publication, especially where policies or programmes are still being developed. Please feel free to mark responses as “Research purposes only” for any information you wish to keep private.

Questions, comments, or want to know more? Please contact energy.efficiency@iea.org, with the subject line “BI survey” to discuss any aspect of the survey or to provide additional information.
The structure of the survey is as follows:

  1. Introduction to the aim and scope of this survey
  2. Contact details
  3. Governance: here you can discuss the structure and processes that your organisation uses in applying behavioural insights to energy policies and programmes.
  4. Case studies in behavioural insights applications: here you can describe how your organisation has applied behavioural insights to specific policies and programmes. For each policy or programme, we would like to know:
    • General information: sectors targeted, location, time frame…
    • Objective, design and implementation.
    • Evaluation and lessons learnt
