Norms, prices, and commitment: A comprehensive overview of field experiments in the energy domain and treatment effect moderators
Several researchers from the ENCHANT project recently published an article, where they present a comprehensive overview “of field experiments utilizing social norms, commitment and price-based interventions to promote energy conservation, load shifting, and energy efficiency behaviors”.
Dear ENCHANTING people, Another summer in ENCHANT is approaching, and as the project is nearing its end, we are preparing for finalising the data collection before a well-deserved holiday.
Our Enchanting project leader, Christian Klöckner will present findings at ICEP 2023 in Aarhus.
Through the EU project ENCHANT, we want to learn more about the energy consumption of our citizens.
Two concrete policy recommendations stemming from ENCHANT research were mentioned during the debate at European Sustainable Energy Week 2022 in Brussels.

The food system in different countries uses a massive amount of energy from start to finish. In the U.S. they consume as much energy preparing and transporting food as France uses to power the entire country for a year.
ENCHANTs partners are from different countries in Europe and have different traditions and dishes that they feel are “theirs”. We asked them to list up some of their favourite dishes that are energy efficient, healthy and really good. This is their respons.
About a third of the food produced for human consumption is wasted every year and that comes with significant environmental and economic costs. 89 million tons of food goes to waste every year only in the European countries and 5 of them come from Romania. Are you a part of the problem or a fighter […]
In Norway, rice pudding is a traditional meal on Christmas Eve. This is an energy efficient way to make the meal, and desert from the leftovers.
We understand you are busy people, but these news and tips about water & energy you don’t want to miss.
Why water? You might be wondering why we have chosen water as our main topic in our latest newsletter. Well, let us explain why.
The counties of Østfold, Akershus, and Buskerud formed the County Viken from January 1st, 2020. This is the largest county in Norway with 1,2 million inhabitants and an area of 24 600 km², and surrounds Oslo in the southeastern part of the country.
Next to air, water is the most important element for the preservation of life. Water is a finite commodity which, if not managed properly, will result in shortages in the near future. Water conservation can go a long way to help alleviate these impending shortages.
Solar energy is obtained from the sun’s radiation and it can be converted to electricity or heat. It is freely available and thanks to advances in technology, we can now harness even more of the solar energy that is continuously available to us.
