Resident Energy Behavior

Saving energy by influencing tenant behavior

The concept is simple: influence tenant behavior, save energy. But how can you as a building owner or operator influence behavior, and which solution works best for your building? That's where we come in. We developed a framework to select the most promising interventions to test and roll out in your building.

Occupant behavior is one of the main reasons for the performance gap between building design and actual usage. By engaging occupants, we can save energy and build on tenant relationships at the same time. 

 

As we run multiple tests in a variety of residential buildings and results are shared between partners, we add to the knowledge of the sector.
