This paper is about the research that has been done to investigate how residents can be urged to save energy. There are two different types of energy-saving behaviours: investment behaviour and curtailment behaviour. There are certain intervention strategies to urge residents to change their investment and curtailment behaviour. With use of the latent class model, three segments of residents are distinguished with different preferences and dislikes for the intervention strategies. Therefore, the municipality of Eindhoven should focus their strategy to urge residents to save energy based on these different segments.
