The overarching motivation of this study is the need to understand and bridge the policy implementation  gap  on  energy  transition  in  Austria’s  Climate  Energy  Model  regions. While  public opinion polls show overwhelming support for climate change actions in Austria, Austria’s innovative CEM program, and its commitment to policy programs (e.g., information campaigns) and instruments (e.g., subsidies and tax breaks) are not sufficiently motivating  households, enterprises and other stakeholders to act towards collective climate change goals. This study analyzes this policy implementation gap on energy transition from the following three angles—underlying contextual factors, strategic considerations, and user-experience and design considerations—evaluating and co-designing transformational policy options for Austria’s energy transition.
