Behavior, Energy & Climate Change Conference

Opportunity

Date and Time:

Sunday, December 6, 2020, 7:30pm to Thursday, December 10, 2020, 5:15pm

Mitigating climate change is more urgent than ever, and we need major leaps in systems and behaviors to address this critical issue. For more than a decade, BECC has presented behavioral research on nudging people and organizations to make these changes. Now is the time to move from nudges to leaps.  For us specifically, the time has come to explore the world of virtual conference production and attendance.

BECC invites you to present your work and learn from others about how to encourage behavior change for energy and carbon reduction, evaluate these programs, understand why individuals and groups change, and make these transitions in fair and equitable ways. Researchers, academics, businesses, utilities, governments, and nonprofits come together to learn and network at this unique conference.

The Behavior, Energy & Climate Change Conference (BECC) is the premier international conference focused on understanding human behavior and decision making and using that knowledge to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future. Currently, in its 14th year, BECC is associated with a growing set of allied conferences in Europe and Asia.

The BECC Conference is convened by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE) at U.C. Berkeley, and the Environmental and Energy Policy Analysis Center (SEEPAC) at Stanford University.

BECC draws a broad mix of attendees:

  • Researchers (e.g., economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, management, law, humanities, and interdisciplinary)
  • Decision makers (e.g., from federal, state, and local agencies, as well as legislators, and regulators)
  • Practitioners (e.g., utilities, planners, consultants, manufacturers, designers, architects, entrepreneurs, marketers, and purchasers)
  • Influencers (e.g., community organizers, nonprofit leaders, media, religion, and entertainment professionals)
  • Energy service providers (utilities, commercial renewable energy participants and new technology market players)

Behavioral research insights can help:

  • Find real energy savings that will benefit the economy, security, and the environment
  • Accelerate climate-friendly innovation via appealing, user-focused design, effective management, and fast social diffusion
  • Increase the benefits and decrease the costs of energy-oriented policies and programs
  • Improve the analytic models that guide our vision for the future
