NRP 71 Managing Energy Consumption

​The NRP "Managing Energy Consumption" will focus on socio-economic questions. At an overarching level, the programme aims to develop basic scientific knowledge and practice-oriented approaches that will facilitate regulatory decisions and help set the course for the energy policy. Special attention will be given to areas with a high savings potential: commercial and private electricity consumption, residual heat in residential buildings and private transport.
