Project Impact
The project will discover and quantify personality drivers behind energy conservation behaviour. A better understanding of such personality drivers helps the development of the best-fit intervention strategy to achieve the maximum potential of energy efficiency. The project will identify the approach to incorporating customized behaviour strategies into building energy simulation and into smart home energy management system (EMS). The integration of behaviour models will expand the features and capability of energy modelling programs and lead to improved performance of building energy planning and auditing.
Project status:
