Energy and the consumer. Final report on the research program 1990-1992

Technical Report:

Abstract

The program Energy and the consumer comprises eight studies dealing with the energy consumption of households, the ways in which household energy consumption can be affected, models of energy consumption behavior, consumer choices, and citizen participation in energy policy. The first article examines the direct and indirect energy consumption of households. It also discusses the changes in household energy consumption which occurred in the 1980`s. The second study analyzed the residential energy consumption of four-person families. The changes in consumption that took place in 1982-1990 were then related to the life-styles of these families. The third paper describes a field experiment in which household conservation of electricity was encouraged by providing more informative electricity bills with consumption feedback and by billing according to actual (not estimated) consumption during the billing period. In the fourth study, the distribution of foodstuffs from the factory or port to the consumer was investigated. The associations between changes in the structure of the distribution system and changes in energy consumption were explored. The issues and actors relevant to the decision to purchase new energy efficient household appliances are discussed in the fifth article. The sixth article analyzes the discussion of energy issues in the mass  More>>

The sixth article analyzes the discussion of energy issues in the mass media and defines its role in the formation of people`s energy awareness and in solving energy problems. Citizen participation in energy policy in Finland and its development prospects are treated in the seventh article, which concludes this report}
