Resident Energy Behavior

Saving energy by influencing tenant behavior

~50% of the energy use of an average building comes from the tenant. By influencing tenant behavior, you can save 5-20% energy per household. 
 
Not all buildings and tenants are the same. It is important to select solutions that really work for your situation. We developed a framework to select the most promising solutions  to test, validate and roll out in your portfolio.
 

Energy behavior

01. UNDERSTAND

We identify tenant profiles and motivations. Then, we analyze the possibilities in your building based on physical characteristics. Once we're well-informed, we're best set up for success.
