CEE Behavior Insights and Tools Now Public
For the first time, the CEE Behavior Committee is releasing a public copy of their foundational framework, CEE Behavior Insights and Tools.
First drafted in 2010 and since updated to include additional findings and connected technologies, this document is the seminal analysis of social science research principles and their application to efficiency programs. CEE members have deployed this framework to increase savings, expand non-energy benefits, and inform program evaluation.
The current version offers:
- Detailed behavioral techniques that can enhance the energy savings opportunities of connected technologies
- An overview of 40+ behavioral social science principles, including examples of how these approaches are already used in energy efficiency programs
- Fourteen detailed case studies of energy efficiency programs incorporating these techniques
You may find these behavioral techniques useful to improve programs across all sectors: residential, commercial, and industrial.
