Energy Behavior

A living lab to engage tenants in energy use

Hello Energy develops energy management software to help building users visualize energy & use it sustainably.

Their goal is clear - to contribute to the global sustainable energy transition in impactful ways. Together we measured 3 different Hello Energy packages in 13 buildings including hotels, student housing, multi-unit residential buildings and offices. The results? A wide variety of positive social, economic and environmental outcomes - all driven by the power of data and behavioral change.

Hello Energy

How can we make tenants

more aware of their energy use?

What did we measure?

01

Economic, environmental and social impacts of the technology

We detected increased awareness about energy use from occupants, along with timely return on investments and improvements to sustainable building scores (e.g. BREEAM). The report outlines the impacts of this intervention. 

02

How building owners and occupants can best use the software

We assessed the utility of this software for both building owners and occupants. Not only can property owners have greater control over their energy management systems, but occupants themselves are able to develop consistent and sustainable habits.
