Abstract: In recent years many times sustainability and renewable energy consumption have been set on the agenda. However, the pressing issue how to make people reduce their amount of energy consumed – or their switching  towards green alternatives – has received far less research attention. The academic discipline of behavioral economics has much to offer to this debate. In the presentation we will summarize prior research on the role of individual differences and various pricing and framing techniques that have proven to be helpful in making people switch to green energy. We will also address challenges and future directions in behavioral energy economics.
