Guidelines to optimize energy-efficiency information campaigns and citizen participation for collective action and energy communities with practical views and methods, based on first year research

The Guidelines to optimize energy-efficiency information campaigns and citizen participation for collective action and energy communities are intended to provide a coherent summary of approaches to communication, information, and intervention campaigns for establishing and shaping Energy Communities, with a strong focus on the behavioural science perspective. Therefore, this document contains a practical approach instead of theoretical considerations. The main goal of this document is to offer recommendations for a structured stakeholder engagement, to provide concrete tools and to classify them from a psychological perspective. Lastly, we give recommendations tailored to DECIDE's pilots.
