The overall goal of the Step by Step project is to maximize the percentage of households of a homogeneous area (a neighbourhood or small city) that adopt energy saving behaviour at home and decide to purchase energy-efficient products and/or high quality renewable energy products.

This goal can be translated into 5 objectives:

  1. Improving households’ knowledge about energy saving behaviour and energy-efficient products.
  2. Motivating households to commit to energy saving actions.
  3. Encouraging community-based interactions between households likely to invest in hiqh quality renewable energy products.
  4. Better understanding behaviour patterns related to energy savings in different target groups.
  5. Conducting dissemination actions to promote the Step by Step concept and its implementation by European local authorities.
