Synergy on the human factor in the energy system

NATCONSUMERS took the initiative to create the synergy on the human factor in the energy system. The European Commission motivated us to launch this synergy with related projects in order to address the high need we all have: for data and building on previous experiences. This synergy main target is to identify common problems, discuss on methodologies to include human factor in energy systems that each project prepares, and establish a joint task force.

This synergy is comprised by projects funded under the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission, focusing on the sector of consumer behaviour, consumers and products, and energy services and projects funded by H2020 programmes New ICT-based solutions for energy efficiency and  Distribution grid and retail market.  All the projects that are members of this synergy are oriented to household consumers, so it would be useful to exchange information and observe the energy efficiency approaches we all develop to influence the behavior of the consumer and exchange ideas about future policy suggestions.

We believe that this synergy, enhances the sustainability impact of project members and adds value to Dissemination and Communication activities.
