Occupant Participation in Energy Conservation

Feb 12, 2014

This paper reviews existing energy use patterns and the adoption/utilization of energy conservation practices in residential and workplace settings. The intent is to explore the critical human and social dimensions of sustainable building/community design and to understand those characteristics that enhance inhabitant life quality and support long-term energy conservation practices. The paper reports on an initial phase of a project exploring how the use of embedded energy feedback technology is used to inform and support occupant energy-conscious behavior.
