Stakeholders’ Behaviour

Concerned scientists and policy-makers cannot disregard the need for increased awareness of the energy problem among stakeholders (at city level: population, administrators, business operators and managers, energy companies, investors) in order to lead to redesign of societal structures and metabolism towards low energy life style and attitudes.

How this can be achieved is not an easy matter, since the present trend relies of past habits of low cost energy use and lack of sufficient awareness of environmental problems.

It is evident that education must play a significant role in this regard.
