The objective of this paper is to design a meaningful model which may be employed to describe in detail consumer behavior in the process of purchasing energy. The subject of the research is energy consumers, while its objects are the models which could be employed to describe consumer behavior when consuming energy. The analysis we conducted indicated that in order to accomplish our objective we need to account for emotional responses, norms and social factors and major economic variables (prices, incomes, prices of substitute goods).
