Abstract: Abstract Consumers’ irrational reluctance to invest in energy efficiency has raised the policymakers’ concern, who started to question the suitability of traditional energy programs. To address behavioral failures, a revision of former policies seems to be called for. We discuss the main barriers pertaining to consumers’ behavior and their policy implications, suggesting some principles for intervention by regulatory authorities.
