The SIT4Energy Project

Sustainable energy is hands down one of the biggest challenges of our times. As the EU sets its focus to reach its 2020 goals, the role of private energy consumers becomes prevalent. The EU and member states are beginning to understand the need to complement supply-related measures (e.g. smart/efficient buildings, appliances and meters) with consumption-affecting initiatives (e.g. consumer empowerment, information and education, energy taxes and incentives) . However, researchers and practitioners alike have long realized that convincing consumers and prosumers (consumers who also produce parts of their own energy, e.g. through photo-voltaic installations) to change their behaviours can be notoriously evasive. At the same time, infrastructural difficulties in combination with the inherent technical nature of energy bills and the billing system in general further hamper our ability to deliver the much-necessary consumer empowerment.

 

To address current limitations in existing commercial products or research activities, SIT4Energy aims to present to end-user prosumers analysis tools and recommendations for energy efficiency actions, enabling them to realize energy savings potentials, so as to widen user adoption of such techniques and increase their effectiveness. Accordingly, the vision and fundamental goal of the SIT4Energy project is: to provide evidence, frameworks and tools for motivating and supporting behavioral change of energy end-users towards energy savings.
