  The U.S. Department of Energy's Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) helps agencies reduce the cost of doing business through energy efficiency, water conservation, and the use of solar and other renewable energy. As a large energy user, the U.S. military has been one of the government sectors of focus. Several military installations have shown substantial energy savings in Cited by: 2. Furthermost projects have focused on administrative and operational areas of energy use. Military residential housing, in particular, has received little formal attention for energy efficiency involving behaviors of the residents themselves. Behavior-based change is a challenging, but potentially fruitful area for energy conservation by: 2. energy-efficient practices simply if they understand the need to conserve energy, believe that energy efficiency is important, and know what actions to take. Many studies conducted over the last 30 years have shown that these factors alone are not enough to change behavior. If . Handbook of Energy Efficiency in Buildings: A Life Cycle Approach offers a comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the subject with a further focus on the Life Cycle. The editors, renowned academics, invited a diverse group of researchers to develop original chapters for the book and managed to well integrate all contributions in a consistent volume.

The purpose of this handbook is to set forth rules, regulations, and information pertaining to the occupancy of Military Family Housing (MFH) under the cognizance of Commander Naval Base, San Diego, (COMNAVBASE). The objectives of COMNAVBASE are to provide suitable family housing for military personnel and their dependents and, to make each housing area a quality, desirable, and .

electricity savings from improved customer information and energy feedback. Behavior‐based energy efficiency strategies exploit the fact that people’s energy choices are influenced by social and psychological behavior as much as, if not more than, economic factors (e.g., prices, costs and income). Energy efficiency through change of energy-related behavior represents a significant promise in terms of energy savings. Building occupants' behavior has a great influence on final energy consumption, and although behavioral savings potentials were usually omitted, there is, currently, a revitalized research interest in applying social and behavioral science to energy efficiency research. Behavior‐based energy efficiency strategies rely on other motivations that influence people’s energy consumption. These non-financial influences can be powerful motivators that encourage people to reduce their energy consumption. For example, some utilities send their customers home energy reports, which present that customer’s energy use.   A Review of the Energy Efficiency Standards of Performance, –, July, London: Ofgem/Energy Saving Trust.
