Behavior Change Programs and Energy – GreenerU’s case study included in ACEEE Behavior Change Programs: Status and Impact Report

November 28, 2016

It is winter time! You know what that means? Snow, sledding, and, unfortunately, open windows on college and university campuses. At least that was the case at Brown University before Brown partnered with GreenerU on a campus-wide Dorm Energy Efficiency Program back in 2011. GreenerU’s three-year pilot project and study with Brown University was outlined in our 2014 white paper, “GreenerU Dorm Energy Efficiency Project.” Key findings from this white paper are included in ACEEE’s recent Behavior Change Program Status and Impact Report. We are excited to be able to contribute our work with Brown to the growing research in behavior change programs as a method for reducing energy consumption and increasing energy efficiency.
