Summary of work:

A very brief summary of your work. What is the focus of your research? What topics do you study? Etc.

Research Projects

My main research interests focus on understanding environmental behaviour, in particular household energy use and car use. I am especially interested in understanding which individual and situational factors affect intrinsic motivation to act pro-environmentally. Also, I study which factors affect the effectiveness and acceptability of environmental policy and technology. I am involved in various interdisciplinary research projects that aim to understand how to realise a sustainable energy transition. Among other activities, I am past-president of the Environmental Division of the International Association of Applied Psychology, member of the Advisory Group on Energy for Horizon 2020, member of the Board of Directors of the University of Twente, member of the scientific board of the Groningen Energy and Sustainability Program, and associated member of the Dutch Council for the Environment and Infrastructure. Also, I coordinate the European PERSON platform (see www.person.eu) that aims to unite and advise socio-economic research on the human dimensions of sustainable energy transitions aimed to promote a secure, clean and efficient energy system.

Research projects:

Efficient demand and supply matching by incentivizing end-users in buildings (MatchIT)

Smart grids promise a formation of a reliable electricity infrastructure that can meet demand with a high security of supply under possibly varying and affordable prices. While the energy is generated in a distributed fashion using solar panels, wind turbines and combined heat-power systems, it can be also stored, for example, using batteries. For such formation to be realized, an electricity infrastructure linking households, commercial buildings and industrial buildings needs control options and interventions that are efficient, intelligent and socially acceptable. Such options and interventions require an interdisciplinary approach that integrates multiple technological and social science disciplines. We propose an interdisciplinary framework that uses innovative control methods and intelligent automated techniques to improve the demand/supply matching that are acceptable to end-users. We develop distributed control methods that combine financial and social incentives with the physics of the electricity infrastructure in an optimal way. Within the electricity infrastructure, we focus on buildings where sensors collect indoor information. We realize intelligent techniques that use that information and automatically coordinate the use of HVAC and appliances in accordance to the infrastructure situation (congestion, energy prices, control signals) and end-user needs. Here, we examine which and why financial and social incentives are acceptable and effective to promote demand and supply matching among end-users. This knowledge provides the means to realize sustainable smart grids in which energy demand is matched to the local supply of energy. We first evaluate our framework in simulated and living-lab settings, and next apply the framework to the “Power Matching City” field lab in the north of the Netherlands.

Incentives and algorithms for efficient, reliable and socially acceptable energy system integration (ERSAS)

This project aims to study how to develop efficient, reliable, sustainable and socially acceptable (decentralised) energy system integration (ESI) from an interdisciplinary perspective. We will examine how to synergise infrastructure for gas, electricity and heat, and how to promote efficient use of such energy system by end users. In the psychological sub-project, we will examine the acceptability and effects of financial and social incentives that aim to encourage end-users to match energy demand to the local fluctuating supply of various renewable energy sources, as to increase the efficient use of the local energy grid. We will study the conditions under which different incentives are effective, as well why different incentives are (not) effective. Researchers from the Engineering and Technology Institute at the University of Groningen will examine how to synergise and couple infrastructure for gas, electricity and heat, and develop control algorithms that enhance the efficiency, stability and sustainability of such integrated energy systems. Together, we will study how effective incentives can be integrated in the algorithms aimed to control integrated energy systems. Also, we will study which factors affect the willingness of users to accept and use the proposed integrated system functionalities. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Urban Smart Measures and Incentives for quality of Life Enhancement (U-SMILE)

Accessibility and sustainability are important conditions for vital and resilient cities, but are under pressure especially in urban areas. Congestion, local air quality, parking; these are different challenges that, however, have in common that effective solutions require behavioural change in addition to technological innovation. This project aims to develop, test and evaluate “smart” measures to affect behaviour. The measures are smart in the first place because they offer an innovative mix of negative and positive financial incentives, thus bypassing some of the main disadvantages of pricing (notably a very limited acceptability) and of rewarding (in particular limited budgets and induced demand). The measures are also smart because they have a highly innovative technological character, not only from the conceptual viewpoint (e.g. tradable driving permits) but also from the technological perspective (e.g. linking real time automated vehicle identification to virtual market environments). These smart measures will be studied from a multidisciplinary perspective, where forces are joined among economists, psychologists, traffic engineers and policy analysts, and will be evaluated from the perspectives of effectiveness, acceptability, and efficiency – paying attention to key urban challenges such as accessibility and environmental quality. The project has a very strong rooting in the urban reality as the case studies are undertaken jointly with Amsterdam Zuidas, Rotterdam, Groningen, and the Amsterdam ArenA area. In the psychological sub-project, we will study to what extent smart incentives can promote durable changes in a wide range of sustainable travel behaviours. We will examine the conditions under which smart incentives are likely to promote sustainable travel behaviour, and the processes that drive behaviour changes. We will study to what extent and how individual characteristics influence the effectiveness and acceptability of smart incentives. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Psychological, social and financial barriers to energy efficiency (PENNY)

This project aims to understand the behavioural mechanisms in energy efficiency, following an interdisciplinary behavioural science perspective. The project will study which psychological, social, economic, institutional and political factors influence energy efficiencyin the residential and industry sector. We wil consider energy use, invenstment in energy efficent products, as well as renovation of buildings. The project is funded bythe EU, Horizon2020.

Effective and acceptable energy management systems and user interfaces to match energy demand and supply

This project aims to develop an energy managing system and related user interface that can match demand and supply from various energy sources and that is likely to be adopted and properly employed by (potential) users. Future energy systems will integrate energy from various sources, that can be tailored to user preferences. To secure efficiency of the system, the system requires almost continuous decisions making. We will study the impact of user autonomy versus system automatisation in these decisions, as well as the effects of feedback to encourage energy conservation. We will collaborate with researchers from the faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Groningen, in order to design effective and acceptable user interfaces. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Smart Farmer Grid 2.0

This project aims to study the optimal design of a smart grid infrastructure in rural argicultural areas. We will study techonological, rural, social and behavioural aspects that promote the efficiency of rural smart energy infrastructures. The project is funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).

Developing socially responsible innovations: The role of values and moral emotions

This project aims to develop an innovative emotion-based design perspective for socially responsible innovations that are acceptable and justifiable on ethical grounds. This is important considering the emotional controversies with regard to many societal challenges related to climate change, energy and resource use, and water and food security. Emotions are commonly seen as “irrational” in decision-making. Traditional approaches aim at inducing positive responses to innovations, but they typically neglect values and moral considerations underlying emotional responses, making these approaches less effective and even ethically dubious. We propose that people’s important values predict their emotional responses to innovations, which in turn drive public acceptability. Values and emotions can therefore play a constructive role in developing socially responsible innovations. Our perspective is relevant for many sectors and different (cultural) contexts, since we examine general ethical principles and emotional processes. Therefore, we collaborate with private partners that are active in different sectors where controversial innovations are being developed. We will develop guidelines on how to incorporate values and emotions in developing socially responsible innovations. This is pivotal for developing new governance models targeting socially responsible innovations. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Acceptability of a sustianable energy transition

This project aims to study which factors affect public support for a sustainable energy transition, including the acceptability of energy sources, sustainable energy technologies, energy infrastructures (including smart grids, and energy policies. We will study the role of individual factors (such as values, familiarity, knowledge) and contextual factors (including characteristics of energy sources, technologies, infrastructure, policies), as well as the role of fairness, justice, and compensation strategies. The projeect is funded by the Green Deal, a public-private partnership.

BeijIng Groningen Smart energy cities (BIGS)

Smart cities anticipate sustainable prosperity of their citizens. In order to accomplish this objective, the current development of cities is undergoing drastic technological shifts that need to be followed by innovative regulatory and behavioural changes with the final goal of increasing sustainability of cities. These changes require a strategy that integrates multiple disciplines and provides a comprehensive understanding and support from a psychological, technological and economic perspective. We propose an interdisciplinary framework that uses innovative and smart technologies to understand and promote sustainable use of energy and aid effective decisions by end-users. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Individual and contextual factors influencing recycling

This project aims to study how individual factors, such as perceived costs and benefits and moral motivations, and contextual factors, such as characteristics of waste collection systems, affect recycling behaivour. The project is part of a large multidisciplinary project on sustainable packages. The project is funded by TI Food and Nutrition.

The power of the neighbourhood: the success and spreading of bottom-up initiatives at the energy market

This project aims to examine individual and social factors influencing the success and spreading of local sustainable energy initiatives that encourage local residents to reduce their CO2 emissions by adopting renewable energy sources and engaging in energy saving behaviours. The project is funded by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).

User behaviour and mobility patterns in the context of major societal trends

This project aims to investigate the current trends and needs in mobility within the EU. We will study to what extent the fulfilment of key psychological needs is accomplished by current mobility services among different groups in the EU (including the elderly), and what is needed to improve sustainable mobility among vulnerable road users. The project is funded by the EU, Horizon2020.

Realizing the smart grid: aligning consumer behaviour with technological opportunities

This project aims to examine which individual factors predict, explain, and influence consumer adoption and use of smart energy technologies that will result in a reduction of uncertainty in smart energy systems. The project is conducted by a multidisciplinary team of psychologists and innovations scientists. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Creating Innovative Sustainability Pathways - CRISP

CRISP seeks to identify potential pathways that will aid the EU towards the transition to a sustainable, low carbon Europe. To meet this challenge, CRISP reviews current policies and practical case studies to figure out where we are at the moment. We then plan to develop and evaluate alternative scenarios for the future so that we than can find ways in which we can bridge the gap between where we are today, and where specifically we want to be in the future. A key feature of CRISP is the involvement and participation with school pupils, as well as experts and individuals, companies and governments. We are funded by FP7, the European Union Framework 7 research programme and are a team of partners from Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway and UK.

The feasibility and impact of the transition to electric mobility in the Randstad

This project aims to understand barriers and enablers for the transition to electric cars. We will address two main questions:

1. To what extent is a transition to electric vehicles acceptable to consumers, and how will such a transition influence car ownership and car use? (Project 1).

2. Which factors are of crucial importance for the position of non-consumer stakeholders with respect to electric vehicles, and which policy strategies could stimulate these actors to cooperate so as to realize a successful introduction of electric vehicles? (Project 2).

The project is conducted by a multidisciplinary team of economists, psychologists, and transport policy researchers. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). For more information: http://www.nwo.nl/nwohome.nsf/pages/NWOP_8A7JF7

Electric vehicles: early stage adoption processes

Most research in the area of Electrical Vehicles (EVs) focuses on technical issues like battery capacity and charging systems. Much less attention is paid to the links between EVs and the wider society, including non-technical issues. In this proposal we focus on the early stages of (potential) market penetration of EVs, and in particular the role of early adopters (consumers and others). We aim (1) to understand the behaviour of crucial actors for the market introduction of EVs (2) to identify barriers and enablers for innovations in the first stage (3) to identify the role of actors in the ‘environment’ of early adopters (e.g. governments, firms, consumers), for these enablers and barriers. Project 1 “innovation transitions from an economic perspective” focuses on the behaviour of early adopters from an (evolutionary) economic systems perspective. Project 2 “innovation transitions from a behavioural-psychological perspective” studies the motivational factors influencing early adoption. Project 3 “the environment of early adopters from an innovation’s perspective” examines the role of crucial actors in the ‘environment’ of early adopters from the perspective of dynamic enablers and barriers’. Project 4, the integrative project, translates the findings to innovation theory, and to the EV arena, wider society and policy makers. We will use insights and approaches from innovation theories, evolutionary economics, several psychological theories (including the theory of the meaning of material possessions and goal framing theory), political economy, and management theories. Methods used include literature research, joint questionnaires, interviews, analysis of innovations in the past, modelling, and actor analysis.

Innovative Pricing for Sustainable Mobility - i-PriSM

This research investigates how innovative pricing can contribute to achieving a more sustainable transport system, taking a broad perspective that encompasses multiple modes (notably road and public transport), multiple technologies within a mode ( e.g. electric vs. conventional fuel cars ), multiple actors (travellers and major stakeholders), and interactions between infrastructure and urban networks; and that considers the implementation and transition phase explicitly. This study takes a systems perspective. For effects assessment this includes transport-specific issues like interactions between road and public transport performance and pricing, but also mutual interactions with spatial urban markets (labour, housing, location). For acceptability research, this includes the explicit consideration of (strategic) behaviour of lobby groups, (local) governments, and other institutions. And for studying price setting, this involves the consideration of multiple (local or national) governments and/or multiple private road operators, competing on the same network.

The project is conducted by a multidisciplinary team of economists, psychologists, and transport researchers. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Governance, Infrastructure, Lifestyle Dynamics and Energy Demand: European post-carbon communities - GILDED

The overall goal of GILDED is to identify social, economic, cultural and political changes which could help rural and urban households in Europe consume less energy. While technological innovation can make low-carbon energy sources economically and environmentally viable, their impact in reducing carbon-intensive energy use will depend critically on broad public and political commitment to such a reduction. GILDED will target socio-economic, cultural and political influences on individual and household energy consumption through five regional case studies. Each case study focuses on a medium-sized city along with nearby rural areas. Investigating individuals’ lifestyle choices and their understanding of energy issues will provide insights into patterns of energy-related behaviours characterising emergent lifestyle types, and the particular drivers impacting on consumption decisions. The social, cultural and political contexts in which these behaviours are embedded will be addressed through analysis of the structural factors and actors (from local to EU level), including governance networks, physical environments, and materialized and institutionalized transport and provisioning networks. This combined ‘top down’ and ‘bottom-up’ perspective on household consumption will be utilised to inform the analysis of an energy-reduction initiative or experiment in each case study region. Principles derived from the lifestyle, structural and initiative studies will be utilised to structure agent-based models of policy implementation and change response.

GILDED is a three year collaborative research project funded through European Union Framework Programme Seven, running from December 2008-2011. For more information: www.gildedeu.org

Barriers for energy changes among end consumers and households - BARENERGY

The EU project BARENERGY aims to identify the relevance and strengths of various barriers for energy behaviour changes among end consumers and households, and to discuss how activities from political authorities, energy producers and NGOs can overcome these barriers.

It will address changes in consumer behaviour along two dimensions. The first is energy saving and improvement of energy efficiency within households, the second is changes toward more sustainable and renewable energy technologies. It is also concerned about the relationship between these three strategies; turn down and switch off, the purchase of energyefficient appliances, and shift to (more) sustainable energy carriers. BARENERGY combines an individual and institutional approach. This means that individual and household energy behaviour and changes in this behaviour can only be understood by countries with a substantial variation in institutional structure considering individual values, attitudes, norms and knowledge among individuals together with the context in which this behaviour takes place. For this reason, countries with a substantial variation in institutional structure, such as variations in energy providers, were chosen.

Barenergy was funded by the European Commission, FP7, and conducted by a multidisciplinary team with researchers from Norway, France, Hungary, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK.

A multi-disciplinary study of pricing policies in transport - MD-PIT

This project aimed at providing a theoretical and empirical evaluation of the direct and indirect effects of practically possible transport pricing policies from a multidisciplinary perspective. The effects studied included behavioural responses and their consequences, also from a spatial and a network perspective, as well as acceptability issues of various pricing and tax recycling schemes. The evaluation included the derivation and formulation of policy implications. Specific features of the project included the focus on dynamic aspects (both short and long run), the recognition of heterogeneity (i.e. the consideration of different groups), and the explicit choice for a network and spatial perspective.

The project was conducted by a multidisciplinary team of economists, psychologists, and transport researchers and funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Teaching

Master Environmental Psychology at the University of Groningen

Learn more

From September 2016, you can enrol in the Master programme Environmental Psychology at the University of Groningen.

Climate change is seen as the greatest threat to our future and that of generations to come (Obama, 2015). In recognition of this threat, almost 200 nations agreed to combat environmental problems. It is widely acknowledged that social sciences have an important role to play in this respect. To combat climate change, it is crucial to understand what motivates people to act pro-environmentally, and which strategies are effective and acceptable to encourage pro-environmental actions. In the Master programme “Environmental Psychology”, students acquire knowledge and skills that enable them to understand the human dimension of environmental and energy problems. After completing the programme, students are able to develop, test and apply theories in the field of Environmental Psychology and to examine the effects and acceptability of theory-based interventions to enhance environmental quality. Career prospects include, among others, pursuing a PhD in Environmental Psychology, conducting research at an institute for applied sciences, consultancy on environmental issues, environmental communication and education, policy advisor or environmental policy making, and behavioural expert in environmental or energy organisations.

Bachelor courses

Applied Social Psychology (B2-4)

This course gives an overview of how social psychological theories and methods can be applied to understand and change social behaviour. We will discuss the possible contributions of social psychologists to help solve social problems in various domains, among which education, ethnic minorities, environment, health care, traffic and transport, consumer behaviour, economic behaviour, political behaviour, and organisational behaviour. We will demonstrate how interventions aimed at behaviour change can be developed, implemented and evaluated based on social psychological theories and research.

Consumer and economic psychology

This course examines the psychological processes underlying economic and consumer behaviour and discusses individual, social and cultural factors that influence these processes. Effects of information and experiences with products and services on affect (emotions), cognitions (beliefs and judgements) and behaviour (purchase decisions and consumption-related practices) are discussed. We demonstrate that economic theories are often not accurate in explaining everyday behaviour, and why individuals often not make ‘rational’ decisions.
