The tools used to accelerate energy transition will be compiled and included in the social contagion toolkit.
Acceleration tools must speed up the contagion process from the seeds to their neighbours, leveraging data from the social contagion model. These intervention tools would enable more connection and greater influence from the seed households to the others in the network; e.g. tools leveraging the connective and influencing strength of social media, visualization tools to communicate the views and actions taken by the seed households to others in the network, or tools that strengthen the sense of community in the network. Simple and practical examples include door stickers for people that have adopted the change, screens in the hallways of buildings where it is shown who in the building signed up for the plans, or tools that make it easier for people to talk about the energy plans.
