Design for Design for Energy-Efficient Everyday life

Design for Energy-Efficient Everyday life is a research and development programme from the Swedish Energy Agency that focuses on the role of individuals and groups in the energy system. The program provides funding to projects that combine energy research and development with design and behaviour science to develop new business models, knowledge, technology, products and services. The programme runs between 2018 and 2028 and have a total budget of 200 million SEK.

The results from the participating projects aim to give individuals and groups greater opportunities to influence and contribute to an energy-efficient and sustainable society. It should be easy to do right by using technology, products and services that are energy efficient and sustainable. The programme has two research and development areas: Knowledge and Expertise, and Technology and Innovation for Resource Efficiency. Funding can be given to research, development, innovation and demonstration projects, as well as activities aimed at commercialization, internationalization and increased utilization.

Design for Energy-Efficient Everyday life is coordinated by SVID, Swedish Industrial Design Foundation.
