Summary or Abstract : To decrease carbon dioxide emissions per capita and hopefully reduce the problem of climate change, many scientists have addressed supply-side methods using carbon-reduction technologies such as carbon capture and storage. But with increasing population and rising energy demand in developed and developing countries, it is unclear whether supply-side methods alone can make sufficient progress toward solving the problem. This thesis investigates demand-side management methods to facilitate a reduction in carbon emissions. The thesis consists of three main studies. First, I design and implement intervention experiment to facilitate a decrease in energy consumption. Second, I use surveys to understand when and why an individual would accept voluntary actions, soft regulations or hard regulations to curb fossil fuel consumption. Third, I show how lay perceptions of energy consumed by different every-day behaviors differ from actual energy consumption data..
