What Is It?

Buildings don’t use energy. People do. Up to 30% of a typical energy bill can be saved through behavior change alone. A successful engagement campaign around energy behavior has the following framework (detail below):

Enhanced relationship with tenants Improved ability to achieve green certification
Reduced O&M costs Enhanced brand & reputation
Reduced environmental impacts Enhanced community relations
Improved ability to achieve green certification Improved employee productivity
Enhanced brand & reputation Improved work environment
Regulatory compliance Increased collaboration & innovation
