Inspired by the first Behavior, Energy and Climate Change (BECC) conference in 2007, this report explores the policy, program, and research topics from that conference. It provides a thoughtful framework for moving beyond the typical "rational economic actor" model as a means of understanding human behavior. The assessment demonstrates that behavior-based programs and policies can dramatically reduce energy consumption, but that achieving these savings will require specialized knowledge, research funding, and coordination.
