Join us to learn about how your residential upgrade program can leverage the insights, and data, from a nationwide public opinion poll conducted by the University of Texas at Austin. Since 2011, the Energy Poll has measured and reports biannually (October and April) on consumer opinions and attitudes toward energy efficiency, climate change, energy consumption, pricing, development and regulation. These poll results provide an impartial and authoritative source of public perspectives on energy to inform and guide discussion, business planning, and policy development.
Sheril Kirshenbaum, Director of the Energy Poll, will discuss consumer willingness to adopt new technologies, expectations on the future of energy prices, trustworthy messengers, consumer values, and more. For example, did you know that 49% of households are satisfied with how they are addressing their energy consumption? Or that 33% of the population consider themselves knowledgeable about how energy is produced, delivered, and used, and of those 33%, more than double the number of men as women self-report themselves as knowledgeable? And 2012 results showed that over 40% of consumers believe that energy will become more affordable and cleaner in the next 5 years, as a result of U.S. energy policies.
