BRISKEE and CHEETAH
are two Horizon 2020-funded
research projects investigating energy
efficiency investment decisions.
The project provides empirical evidence
of consumer decision-making
and its influence on energy modeling
and energy efficiency policy.

BRISKEE will provide empirical evidence of applied discount rates, accounting for differences across EU households, technologies and countries. It will explore the impact of time discounting and risk preferences on the diffusion of energy efficient technology and energy demand in the EU residential sector until 2030, and the macro-level impacts of changes in microeconomic decision-making and policy. >>>

CHEETAH will provide empirical evidence for the dynamic adaption of discount rates as policy measures addressing energy efficiency investment decisions come into place. On the micro level, it explores the response of consumers to energy efficiency policy. On the meso level, it explores how micro-level decisions influence energy demand in the EU residential sector until 2030. On the macro level, it explores the economic impacts of changes in microeconomic decision-making and energy efficiency policy. >>>
