Guided by the theory of planned behaviour, we conducted an interview study to identify beliefs that potentially influence social-housing residents’ future behaviour with domestic low-carbon technology in retrofit housing. The study included (group interview n=6, individual interviews n=14). Behavioural beliefs, normative beliefs and control beliefs were identified from participants’ answers using the theory of planned behaviour and thematic analysis. For successful implementation, it will be important to ensure that the predominant benefits (positive beliefs) emerging from this study are implemented (e.g., lower heating bills) and the barriers (negative beliefs) are avoided or alleviated (e.g., upfront costs). The results will be quantified in a follow-up, survey study.
