|HEEP Hosts Online Bibliography of Research on the Energy-Efficiency Gap
April 16, 2014
HEEP has built and made publicly available an online bibliography of research literature on the "energy-efficiency gap." Learn more here.
HEEP co-sponsored a research workshop on the energy-efficiency gap, with the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) and the Duke University Energy Initiative, in March 2014. Learn more here.
HEEP Pre-Doctoral Fellow Richard Sweeney, and HEEP Pre-Doctoral Fellow alum Hunt Allcott co-authored a discussion paper titled "Information Disclosure through Agents: Evidence from a Field Experiment." The authors conducted a natural field experiment exploring consumer buying habits towards energy efficient products.
The Harvard Environmental Economics Program, along with the Duke University Energy Initiative, hosted a two-day workshop on October 24-25, 2013 at the Harvard Kennedy School titled, "Evaluating the Energy Efficiency Gap." The workshop was supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Read more here.
This joint initiative between Duke and Harvard University will advance understanding of the "energy efficiency gap" and the diverse factors that affect the adoption of energy-efficient equipment and practices. It focuses on differences between predicted and observed adoption of these technologies. The initiative's findings will inform future research and policy. Learn more here.
