The role of building occupants in energy-savings opportunities is attracting the attention of professionals and scientists with the purpose of developing innovative and effective strategies for energy efficiency in buildings. People’s awareness about energy consumption, and the “green” attitudes of building occupants, have been acknowledged to be responsible for reducing energy demand in buildings. In light of this view, this chapter discusses how to describe and take advantage of people’s behavior in building thermal-energy assessment issues. Finally, the literature dealing with the possibility of triggering energy-conscious behaviors and further cost-effective energy-savings opportunities, i.e., the human-based energy retrofit, is discussed.

Abstract

The role of building occupants in energy-savings opportunities is attracting the attention of professionals and scientists with the purpose of developing innovative and effective strategies for energy efficiency in buildings. People’s awareness about energy consumption, and the “green” attitudes of building occupants, have been acknowledged to be responsible for reducing energy demand in buildings. In light of this view, this chapter discusses how to describe and take advantage of people’s behavior in building thermal-energy assessment issues. Finally, the literature dealing with the possibility of triggering energy-conscious behaviors and further cost-effective energy-savings opportunities, i.e., the human-based energy retrofit, is discussed.
