Behavior Management

Energy Behavior Management is based on the idea that individual’s can be educated and their behavior can be changed to save energy in daily routines. Simple examples include remembering to turn off the lights when you leave the room, turning off your computer monitor when you will be away from it for more than a few minutes, and turning off the lights when there is adequate light from the sun coming in the windows. More complex examples include agreeing that the air conditioner can be set at 72 degrees or above, teaching people to use task specific lighting, and asking people to wear sweaters on cooler days. Organizational behavior can be changed as well to provide that campus environments consolidate classes and officing in fewer buildings on slow days to allow empty buildings to be shut down to save energy from lighting and heating and cooling. Beezley Energy Advisors can help identify strategies of this type, educate building occupants and managers, and provide measurement and verification to determine the effectiveness of behavior changes.
