This report is submitted as deliverable 7.2 in the CHEETAH project with the aim of summarizing the policy recommendations derived from the micro as well as the meso level analysis that was conducted as part of work package 4 and work package 5.

The objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive overview of the policy recommendations following from the micro-level analysis relying on the CHEETAH survey and from the meso-level analysis following from the implementation of the results in the energy demand models Invert/EE-Lab, FORECAST and EMLab-Consumer. The report is designed as a dynamic document, which will be extended as the project proceeds and will eventually also include the recommendations from the macro-level (deliverable 7.3).

Section 2 provides an overview of the energy efficiency policies and the key household characteristics, which were included in the CHEETAH survey and the energy demand modeling.

In section 3, their operationalization in the discrete choice experiments and the results of the same are briefly discussed and policy implications are derived from the micro-level analysis. The findings of the econometric analysis on the three technologies refrigerators, thermostats and heating systems are reported in detail in deliverable 4.4. and Milestone 3. The findings from the survey experiments on policy acceptability are reported in detail in deliverable 4.5.

Section 4 briefly lays out how the results of the discrete choice experiments were implemented in the energy demand models FORECAST and Invert/EE-Lab. For each of the models the scenario results are briefly described followed by a description of the derived policy implications. Furthermore, for appliances as well as for buildings policy implications derived by the ABM EMLab-Consumer are presented. The detailed presentation of the defined scenarios can be found in deliverable 5.1. The deliverables 5.2 and 5.3 describe the respective modeling steps for Invert/EE-Lab (5.2) and Forecast (5.3) in detail, including the old and enhanced approaches, the implementation of the results in the models and the results of the scenarios.
