    Bio-Eco-Trans4.0 aims to develop environmentally friendly, sustainable and energy efficient technologies and products from waste within the scope of road transport as well as to strength the professional career of Dr Carmona-Cabello to become a world-leading researcher in the production of waste-derived products. The novelties of Bio-Eco-Trans4.0 are the development of new materials using waste feedstock, the integration of product functionally and air quality impact on product's design, and embedding the concepts of circular economy, industry 4.0 and digitalisation within a biorefinery. The findings could be also relevant to other methods of transport and 3D printing materials. Bio-Eco-Trans4.0 will contribute to mitigate the impact of the transport sector on energy demand (33% of the total energy production), air quality (4.2 million deaths worldwide annually) and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) (24% of total CO2 from EU) using a whole life cycle approach. The fellowship aligns with the Framework of Policies for Energy and Climate Change 2021- 2030 targeting a reduction of GHG (40%), an increase in renewable energy (27%) and an improvement in energy efficiency (27%) compared to 1990. The experience of the fellow in the development and characterisation of bio- and eco- products, the excellent environment and complementary expertise at the host institutions and the pathways to strength/develop collaborations with industry provide the right ingredients to maximise its impact.

    Consumers do not minimize the total costs of their energy-consuming investments due to a range of market and non-market based failures. This is known as the ‘Energy Efficiency Gap’. To reduce the gap and provide customers with energy consumption information, the EU has mandated that electrical appliances, cars and buildings carry information to indicate their energy consumption. There is a large knowledge gap in terms of understanding which factors are salient in consumers’ decisions, the relative importance of these factors and how these factors change by consumer group and product type. The key idea behind CONSEED is to understand how consumers make decisions which involve an energy component, and to make (energy) operating costs more salient to consumers at the point of purchase to increase efficient behaviour. CONSEED will involve four key steps. 1) Develop a theoretical framework to base our work on the best available knowledge in the field and 2) Collect empirical data on consumer behaviour through a range of different methods. Our project will involve 27 focus groups, eleven large consumer surveys, three field experiments, and three discrete choice experiments, with tailored treatments to generate a novel database consisting of empirical evidence on the salient factors impacting on the consumer decision making process. Step 3) will validate the theoretical models using our empirical data. Step 4) will deliver evidence-based research on consumer decisions involving an energy component that will enable better, more efficient and effective energy policy. Many of the challenges relating to energy efficiency policy derive from the large number of factors which potentially play a role in influencing ultimate consumer decisions. CONSEED research will directly investigate the relative importance of these factors and isolate the aspects which are likely to provide the greatest impact in terms of future energy efficiency policy.
