The focus of this year’s BECC conference is on driving transformation – new ideas, new policies, new methods of changing behavior towards mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.
As we get closer to 2030, we feel the need for speed and disruption: the urgent rethinking of current strategies to address climate change. In the US this year, the influx of funds from the Inflation Reduction Act provides a unique opportunity to apply behavioral insights to rapidly expand decarbonization in homes and in transportation. The focus of this year’s BECC conference is on driving transformation—new ideas, new policies, new methods of changing behavior towards mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. Since 2007, the BECC community has applied behavioral research and practice to foster individual and organizational change. We are back in person in Sacramento, CA, excited to discuss innovative behavioral solutions that ensure equity and inclusivity.
How can we pivot from business-as-usual to strategic changes in behavior that reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions? How do we manage the urgent shift in both individual and organizational behavioral change? How do these deliberate disruptions affect how we evaluate behavior-change programs? How can we drive positive transitions in fair and equitable ways? These questions will guide our 2023 conference.
Since 2007, the Behavior Energy and Climate Change conference brings together social scientists, practitioners, utilities, academics, governments, businesses, and non-profits to share and disseminate best practices and research to encourage behavior change for energy and carbon reduction. Come present your work and learn from others about innovative methods, practices and technologies, how to evaluate these programs, understand why individuals and groups change, and make these transitions in fair and equitable ways.
