The 2009 Behavior, Energy and Climate Change Conference is the 3rd annual conference focused on accelerating our transition to an energy-efficient and low carbon economy through an improved understanding and application of social and behavioral mechanisms of change. This year’s conference will build on the overwhelming success of the 2008 BECC Conference in which nearly 700 participants discussed successful program strategies, shared innovative research findings, and built dynamic new networks and means of collaboration.
This pre-eminent conference will bring together a diverse group of energy experts, social scientists, and policymakers to discuss the social and behavioral basis for, and practical implementation of, reducing energy use through the adoption and application of more energy-efficient technologies, energy conservation activities, and lifestyle changes.
The conference is intended to catalyze collaboration across government, utility, business, and research sectors and to share recent research and program information with the goal of achieving viable solutions for meeting long-term energy and greenhouse gas emissions reductions targets.
The 2009 BECC Conference is convened by the California Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE),University of California Office of the President; the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center (PEEC),Stanford University; and the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE). This year’s conference will be held in Washington, D.C., November 15-18th (Sunday evening-Wednesday afternoon) at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel near the National Zoo and accessible via Metro’s red line.
