Behavior, Energy and Climate Change Conference 2009

Washington, DC USA
November 15-18, 2009

The 3rd annual Behavior, Energy and Climate Change Conference is focused on accelerating America's transition to an energy-efficient and low carbon economy through an improved understanding and application of social and behavioral insights. This year’s conference will build on the 2008 BECC Conference, in which more than 700 participants discussed program strategies, shared innovative research findings and built dynamic new networks and means of collaboration. This conference will bring together a diverse group of energy experts, social scientists and policymakers to discuss the social and behavioral basis for, and practical implementation of, insights for reducing energy use through the adoption and application of more energy-efficient technologies, energy conservation activities, and lifestyle changes. The conference is intended to catalyze collaboration across government, utilities, businesses, and research sectors and to share recent research and program information with the goal of achieving viable solutions for meeting long-term energy and greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets.
