Abstract: Though energy efficient behavior plays a key role in Swiss policy decisions, only few SME participate in energy efficiency programs (EEP). In order to better understand the underlying decision making process of executives, we developed a questionnaire referring to different psychological theories.  3 groups of executives in SME could be separated: a non-, planned- and realized-participation group. Diff-erences occurred, for example, with regard to the awareness of the own energy consumption, the estimation of how much the SME could take advantage of a participation in EEP and their self estimated knowledge of efficiency measures in general. Therefore, it seems to be crucial to consider the results of the study when executives in SME should be addressed to take part in energy efficiency measures.
