Encouraging Energy Efficiency: Product Labels Activate Temporal Tradeoffs

We introduce a new "10-year energy cost" labelling technique that activates latent consumer goals, increasing the proportion of energy-efficient choices from 12% to 48% in a field study. In four lab studies, we demonstrate the mechanism and superiority of this technique relative to existing alternatives.
