Energy savings are required, and behavioural change is a good guarantee for this. This paper presents an interdisciplinary four-step approach towards such energy savings. It is based on two types of monetary instruments (white certificates and complementary currencies), that make use of the smart meter infrastructure as a measurement platform for assessing the realised energy savings. A social component ensures that the system design will be accepted by the public at large.
