  • Summary • The Problem ↔ The Opportunity • Stanford Energy Programs • Smart Incentives • Games • Feedback • Other
  • The Problem The Opportunity Procrastination Biases Bounded Current Information Overload Rationality Energy Use BiasesProbability Energy Use Social Bias Tendencies Optimal Energy Use .
  • The Problem The Opportunity Procrastination Eliminate biases working Biases against energy savings Current Information Bounded Overload Energy Use Activate biases that can Biases work for energy savings Prob Energy Use Social ncies B Optimal Energy Use .

  • Smart Incentives Project Goal Design an incentive mechanism to get households to reduce energy use
  • Summary • The Problem ↔ The Opportunity • Stanford Energy Programs • Smart Incentives • Motivation • Implementation • Games • Feedback • Other
  • Smart Incentives Project: Motivation Turn off Fixed Reward: 1 cent lights
  • Smart Incentives Project: Motivation Turn off Fixed Reward: 1 cent lights Research: small monetary rewards are not motivating Small rewards bias works against energy savings Eliminate small rewards bias: pool the $
  • Smart Incentives Project: Motivation Bias: people tend to overestimate small probabilities Probability bias can work for energy savings Use small probabilities
  • Smart Incentives Project: Motivation Turn off Fixed Reward: 1 cent lights OR Random Reward: 1 in 100,000 chance at $1000 Same expected cost, more motivating More KWh savings per $

  • Smart Incentives Project: Implementation Every day Each household’s Online Interface: Energy smart meter data use and energy savings POINTS $0 fxn(energy savings) Points Redeem points in online random rewards game
  • Smart Incentives Project: Implementation Social tendencies can work for Alan Timber Just installed CFLs in all my lights – I energy won $1000! savings April 10, 2010 at 1:14pm Delete Sarah Lake Nice! Which brand of CFLs did you get? April 10, 2010 at 1:14pm Delete
