Our Vision is to expand the frontier of knowledge at the intersection of data science and human behavior.
Smart meters, smart thermostats and other new technologies provide previously unavailable high-frequency and location-specific information on energy usage. These vast, constantly growing streams of data, together with cutting edge analytics techniques, have the potential to provide novel insights into how people make energy decisions. Behavior analytics encompasses this emerging space of data science in which behavior and energy intersect.
Our Goal is to enable evidence-based and data-driven decisions by energy policy makers and other industry stakeholders using behavior analytics.
Our team members are leading experts in energy economics, experimental design, analytics, and behavioral theory and employ sophisticated statistical techniques and objective, rigorous, and creative research methods.
We contribute discoveries and insights regarding the nature of human energy decisions, in order to inform public policy.
We provide guidelines and best practices for analytics and program evaluation, to be used by policy makers, program administrators, utilities, state regulatory agencies, and evaluators.
