This workshop was organised on Monday, 8th of March 2021 and allowed attendants to get first hand information about the first results of both the WHY and NewTRENDs projects. Both projects have recently finished their stakeholder consultation and are now in position to share their first insights.
The meeting started with a presentation of the set of households-energy behaviour models designed in WHY to answer all requirements from stakeholders. Next, the new societal trends that might substantially impact future energy demand were presented. Those trends will determine the enhancement of the energy demand models in NewTRENDs.
Finally, focus groups discussed potential synergies and complementarities between both approaches to set a collaboration roadmap between the projects and to assess the results presented, evaluating the alignment with the policy objectives in order to: (1) detect any missing points and (2) prioritize the development of the components / societal trends selected.

Farewell by Wolfgang Eichhammer
Cruz E. Borges, Project Coordinator of WHY and researcher at DeustoTech, talks about the main results of the Stakeholder Consultation process carried out in the WHY Project. In particular, he introduced the main model architecture defined and how these models are planned to be used.
Nives della Valle, Scientific Officer at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, talks about the importance of the Behavioural Aspects on Energy Efficiency Models and what are the initiatives that the JRC is taking in this respect.
Heike Brugger (Fraunhofer Insititut) talks about the NewTRENDS project that examines new societal trends that might substantially impact future energy demand. Those trends will determine the enhancement of the energy demand models.
