Empirical evidence for the effectiveness of policies

CHEETAH – Changing Energy Efficiency Technology Adoption in Households – has a strong focus on policy design. Relying on representative choice experiments in 18 000 households in eight EU countries, the micro-level analysis investigates individuals’ responses to policies such as energy labels or subsidies. At the meso- and macro level, CHEETAH explores the effects of individual decision-making and policies on EU residential energy demand and on macro-economic variables until 2030.

CHEETAH provides empirical evidence for the effectiveness of policies such as energy labels or subsidies for the adoption of energy-efficient technologies in households, relying on representative choice experiments in eight EU countries. Employing engineering-economic and macro-economic models, it also explores the effects of micro-level decision-making and of energy-efficiency policies on EU residential energy demand and on macro-economic variables until 2030.

It is closely linked to BRISKEE, but has a slight different approach in its focus on barriers and directed policy interventions to address these barriers.
