The 2009 Behavior, Energy and Climate Change Conference is an international conference focused on accelerating our transition to an energy-efficient and low carbon economy through an improved understanding and application of social and behavioral research insights. It will be held November 15-18, 2009 at the Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. The conference aims to catalyze collaboration across government, utilities, businesses, and social-science researchers and to share recent research and program results from social marketing and other intervention approaches. Doug McKenzie-Mohr will be one of the spotlight speakers. Website: www.BECCconference.org.

2009 BECC will bring together a diverse group of policy makers, energy experts, social scientists, managers and communicators to discuss the practical implementation of social and behavioral science insights to energy and climate. The conference, featuring over 200 presenters in 40 topic sessions, will build on the overwhelming success of the sold-out 2008 BECC at which 700 participants discussed successful policy and program strategies, shared innovative research findings, and built dynamic new networks and means of collaboration.
