These projects applied economic and social network analysis to data collected in interventions.

Avg energy of agents over simulated social distance vs. percent of population clowned
Investigator(s): Jeff Shrager
Even if we cannot predict the exact amount of energy that may be saved due to various manipulations to change behavior, the possible interventions might at least be rank ordered. Such a ranking, crossed with cost, would be used in choosing which manipulations to employ.

Twitter hashtag rankings
Understanding conversations in social media could provide program planners and communication managers unique insights into trending thoughts about energy efficiency and climate change. In 140 characters or less, the concerns, interests and public narratives about energy efficiency and climate change can be identified through tweets.
