Turning off lights. Carpooling to work. Installing a photovoltaic system on a home. All of these energy-saving actions are a result of a human decision.

Researchers at the Center for Energy and Behavior study the interactions between technology and humans and what influences people to conserve energy or adopt energy efficient tools. 

The center’s aim is to create practical solutions to energy sustainability. Research results are used to improve sustainable design and operations in buildings, create low-cost energy solutions, maximize the efficiency of existing technology and encourage the adoption of new technology.
