Overview

1. Perceptions of energy consumption
-  Most effective behavior?
(Attari et al., PNAS, 2010)
2. What I want to do vs. what you should do
- Self-other differences in behaviors deemed most effective?
(…more studies to follow)
3 9 1. Perception Study: Participants
Online survey advertized via Craigslist in
seven metropolitan cities (n = 505)
New York
Washington DC Denver
Los Angeles Dallas
Houston
4 First question
(open-ended)
• 1. In your opinion, what is the single most
effective thing that you could do to use
5 Behaviors deemed “most effective ” by participants
12%
6 Behaviors deemed “most effective ” by participants
Curtailment
Efficiency
7 EnergyEﬃciencyGap
•  “Turning out lights when leaving rooms,
tend to have minimal impact on climate
change”
– (Dietz and Stern, 2008)

Q. Why is “turning off the lights” the most
mentioned behavior?

-  Availability heuristic?

EnergyEﬃciencyGap
•  “Efficiency saves more energy than
curtailment”
– (Dietz and Stern, 2008)
Q. Why do individuals focus more on
curtailment rather than energy efficiency?

- Income effect?
