The Consumer Perpespective

It is not only in the ReDREAM project that the focus is on consumers and their influence in the energy sector. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the consumer. What moves them, how do they perceive the topic of energy in the first place? What are the factors that influence their behaviour in the use of energy? In the following section, some insights will help you to adapt your activities more efficiently and sustainably to the real consumer needs. 

The energy market with its various participants is a complex entity with completely different needs. Based on the ReDREAM behavioural research work, we have presented some participants and their needs in the form of white papers in the following section.

Private Consumer
