Guidelines to optimize energy- efficiency information campaigns and citizen participation for collective action and energy communities with practical views and methods

The Guidelines to optimize energy-efficiency information campaigns and citizen participation for collective action and energy communities intend to provide a coherent summary of
approaches to communication, information, and intervention campaigns for establishing and shaping Energy Communities (ECs) and Collective Energy Actions (CEAs), with a strong focus on the behavioural science perspective. Therefore, this document contains a practical approach instead of theoretical considerations. The main goal of this document is to offer recommendations for a structured stakeholder engagement, to provide concrete tools and to classify them from a psychological perspective. Lastly, we give recommendations tailored to DECIDE's pilots.
