Literature review on concepts
The report provides an overview of the literature relevant to developing the conceptual approach of the project.
The CHEETAH project has the objectives of providing evidence-based input to energy efficiency policy-making by investigating the influence of energy efficiency policy on households´ investment decisions on three levels:
1) On the micro level, the project provides empirical evidence on households´ response to energy efficiency policies by conducting a survey in eight EU member states, accounting for possible differences by technologies, household types, and countries.
2) On the meso level, the project explores the impact of time discounting and risk preferences, and of policies affecting those factors on technology diffusion and energy demand in the residential sector in Europe up to 2030. The project uses inputs from the micro-level analysis in order to improve the representation of investment decisions in energy demand modelling tools.
3) On the macro level, BRISKEE explores the long-term macroeconomic impacts of changes in micro-economic decision-making and of energy efficiency policy on employment, GDP and exports in the EU up to 2030.
The findings of this report represent the conceptual design of CHEETAH as one important input to the survey design.
