You’ve optimized envelope, you’ve optimized the building systems, but the majority of energy consumption will depend on the end users. Tenant engagement is key to ensuring performance as designed and tapping into additional energy savings. But what are the most effective means of engagement today? What factors affect behavior and decision-making? Learn what strategies are helping leading market property owners reach deeper tenant awareness and energy savings and how tenant engagement programs can support NYC’s Carbon Challenge.
