Abstract

This Deliverable elaborates a consolidated scientific knowledge base stemming from the correlation of the main findings obtained throughout the ECHOES project with the existing literature in order to advance consensus on the key factors and relationships driving (or meaningfully influencing) specific energy choices and related behavioural patterns illustrative of particular energy lifestyles, for three different levels of decision-making (micro-, meso-, and macro-) within a specific technological domain (smart energy technology, electric mobility, or buildings) identified in the ECHOES project. This report distils the conclusions from the consensus achieved on the soundness of the results obtained, the expected influence/impact on actual (energy) behaviour, the relevance to practice and decisionmaking, and the required changes on energy governance at national and European levels. The resulting knowledge base distilled form this process is then embedded into the wider volume of research conducted outside the scope of the project.
