Behavior, Energy and Climate Change Conference
Posted in Events by Devin Maeztri on May 5th, 2009
The 2009 BECC 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 more than 700 participants discussed successful program strategies, shared innovative research findings, and built dynamic new networks and means of collaboration. As in previous years, the BECC conference will bring together people from across the nation and around the world to share the latest insights, research, and experiences pertaining to behavior, energy and climate change.
The conference is attended by a diverse group of energy experts, social scientists, and policymakers who gather 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.
This is the first year in which the BECC conference will be held in Washington, D.C. Compared with past years, we anticipate that the East Coast setting will draw an even larger international audience as well as national policymakers. In addition, conference-related events will include a post-conference Hill briefing, and Congressional testimony.
