WP2- Formulation of SSH database and SSH indicators

This work package is aimed at collecting, synthesizing and formulating relevant data and indicators related to individual and collective energy choices and behaviour. For this purpose, national and EU level databases will be taken as a starting point to evaluate existing gaps in quantitative data that would be needed in policy and decision-making bodies and in research communities. As a result of this work the following reports have been produced:

WP3- Policy potential assessment of the state-of-the-art / coordination of data collection activities

This work package prepares the conceptual ground for the empirical work to be conducted in the following packages. It aims at producing a unique synthesis of the policy potential provided by the current knowledge on drivers of energy choices. The following documents have been the result of this process:

Deliverable 3.1 Literature review  Deliverable 3.2 Data collection strategy plan  Deliverable 3.3 Advanced Social Science Knowledge in Policymaking processes

WP4- Individual energy choices in group contexts: a social identity perspective on sustainable energy transitions

This is an empirical work package aimed at assessing psycholgical mechanisms of individuals in groups, focusing on the distinctive role of collective thinking as a central determinant of human attitudes and behaviours concerning collective energy transitions. 

Deliverable 4.1  Deliverable 4.2

WP5- Collective behaviour driven by “energy cultures”: European energy lifestyles

This is also an empirical work package, focusing on the dimension of European energy cultures. The following issues are analysed in this package: the characteristics of European energy cultures and the relationship between energy cultures, lifestyles and energy practices.

Energy memories is a new concept developed by ECHOES and describes energy relevant attitudes, beliefs and practices, developed from past key events that became part of the normative, practical and material culture.

WP6- Formal social units as drivers behind collective decision-making

This work package aims at identifying the drivers of energy choices and energy related behaviour within different forms and levels of formal social units, including policy-makers, energy providers, industrial consumers and individual consumers engaged in joint contracts.

WP7- Knowledge Synthesis for the Energy Union and SET-Plan

This package integrates and synthesizes all previous results in the ECHOES project and consolidates them in a scientific report discussing the objectives, methods and results of the knowledge consolidation process, and how it embeds to the existing literature. A consensus between scientists, NGOs and policy-makers will be established about the decisive driving factors of energy related choices and then a strategy will be derived to integrate these findings in the European energy policy-making.
