Tremendous effort is invested in planning the energy performance of your projects' form and program. To realize targeted energy performance, consideration is often given to the trade-off between user flexibility and rigid operating guidelines. What would happen if a portion of that choice could be made on the back-end after the project was completed, and the choices made had a substantial positive impact on energy curtailment?
There are far too many energy management solutions today that focus on niche loads and ignore the fact that the buildings, and the people who live and work in these buildings, change over time. Effective change agents (whether software, people, or process-driven methodologies) need to better account for these differences. Learn how simple awareness tools, integrated into the design of the form and program, can drive substantial behavior change at the grass-roots level, and, in turn, drive significant energy curtailment.
