Opportunities for Promoting Healthy Homes and Long-Lasting Energy-Efficient Behaviour among Families with Children in Portugal


Achieving the full energy transition potential calls for a paradigm shift, and many solutions are investigated to involve many people and support them in reducing their energy consumption. 

NUDGE will implement and evaluate different behavioural interventions for energy efficiency, paving the way for new policies and human behaviour.

The designed interventions are compared against traditional ones in pilots in GreeceBelgiumGermanyPortugal and Croatia, with:

  • diverse and innovative energy use scenarios (e.g., PV production for EV charging, demand response for natural gas),
  • demographic and socio-economic variables of the involved populations, and
  • platforms to make the interventions operational (smart mobile apps, dashboards, web portals, educational material and intergenerational learning practices).
