This paper presents a survey combining a stated choice experiment and a priority evaluator. The survey addresses ways that people would invest in energy efficiency and differences between energy efficiency in housing and private transport. The survey sample consists of 500 homeowners (owner occupiers) owning at least one car and is divided in two parts: a paper and pen questionnaire with Stated Preference experiments followed by an Internet-based Priority Evaluator. Both choice experiments are personalized to present the candidates with meaningful choice sets. <br/> In the stated preference experiments, respondents are asked to choose between four alternatives as a reaction to hypothetically increasing fuel prices: insulating the house, buying a heat pump, buying a new, more efficient car and selling the car and switching to public transport. In the second part of the survey, the Priority Evaluator, respondents interactively optimize their CO2 output in an Internet application, selecting among long-term investments as well as short-term measures. <br/> Data collected in the survey will be processed using statistical models, such as multinomial logit models, to derive parameters for different efficiency measures used to predict long-term investment behavior of homeowners Show more
