PAT continues its research work on behavioural environmental economics as applied to energy use and decarbonisation. To further enhance its dissemination and outreach activities, PAT has launched a special issue on ‘Behavioural Insights for sustainable energy use: Theories, evidence and policy implications’.

The issue will be published in the Energy Policy journal (IF 5.04) in December 2021 and is jointly organised with colleagues from the Denmark Technical University (DTU) and the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). It is expected to provide a comprehensive overview of policy-oriented research covering theoretical advances, a breadth of experimental methods, field experiences, ethical challenges, and the evaluation of different behavioural-oriented policy interventions.
