Abstract

The research unit `Energy and Consumers` is coordinated by the Department of Social Psychology at the University of Helsinki and financed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry for three years (1990-92). The objective of the research unit is to compile and analyze information about the relationships between energy and society, aiming to advance the conservation of energy and the sensible use of energy. The energy research unit consists of six independent projects which are directed by the executive committee set up by the Ministry of Trade and Industry. The aim of the first study is to develop a sociological model concerning the formation of knowledge and attitudes about energy. Attitudes about energy presented in the mass media as well as opinions of experts and individuals are included in the study. The aim of the second study is to analyze the Finnish food distribution system, and the role of the consumer as a part of the distribution system chain, in terms of energy requirements. Special attention is payed to the spatial features of the system. The goal of the third study is to describe private individuals experimenting with energy production and conservation, their activities, motives and opinions. Typically they use  More>>

Special attention is payed to the spatial features of the system. The goal of the third study is to describe private individuals experimenting with energy production and conservation, their activities, motives and opinions. Typically they use solar energy or ground heat for space heating or produce electricity using windmills. The relationship of energy consumption to the everyday life of residents in detached houses is examined in the fourth study. The study attempts to investigate the meaning of activities involving energy consumption, the perception of energy consumption and the perceived obstacles in energy conservation.}
