Reducing Electricity Use in Campus Residence Halls

April 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Free

Our quasi-experimental design exposed first-year students in four matched residence halls to three different interventions designed to encourage energy conservation, specifically electricity conservation.We employed active and passive programming and a combined approach. Multivariate analyses revealed significantly lower electricity consumption in all residence halls wherein interventions were introduced. While the results were consistent across years, our analyses suggest important differences in the relative efficacy of the interventions.
