Evidence of climate change is largely undisputed but moderating the impacts not only of climate change but also of resource depletion is a complex, multi- faceted problem. Technical solutions will have a large role to play but engineering behaviour change within households and rms is essential to harnessing the potential for energy effcient consumption, production and investment. To inform debates about behavior change, this paper explores some insights from behavioural economics including analyses of bounded rationality, cognitive bias / heuristics, temporal discounting, social influences, well-being and emotions.
