Beth Karlin, Marta A. R. Lopes, Rebecca Ford, Therese E Peffer

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


While the physical and engineering sciences have been successful in delivering energy efficiency increases over the last 40 years, the speed and scale now required to meet international goals require insights and interventions that incorporate behavioral and lifestyle drivers of energy use. Understanding and incorporating human behavior and decision-making into policies and programs targeting energy efficiency is key to accelerate the transition to an energy-efficient future.
