Energy savings performance contracting presents a valuable opportunity to establish sustainable operating practices and behavior change in conjunction with technological improvements in building equipment and systems. NORESCO’s Green Operations Program provides education, outreach and operational strategies that respond to each client's environmental, workforce, and cultural needs.
From building occupant energy education, to community outreach, project promotion, technical education, rollout support, and implementation of green cleaning practices, our skilled specialists work with our engineers and project managers to tailor a program that optimizes the value of a performance contract across the organization or across the community.
ENERGY CONSERVATION THROUGH BEHAVIOR CHANGE®
Energy Conservation Through Behavior Change® is the centerpiece of our Green Operations program. Our proprietary, time-tested methodology measures multiple motivational factors, behaviors and perceptions of energy use among members of the focal community. Assessing these factors allows us to deliver a custom behavior change program, where energy users are given the opportunity to advance an organization's energy-conserving potential and personally experience the satisfaction of contributing to a progressive energy conservation initiative.
Energy Conservation Through Behavior Change® is a dynamic program, and therefore is modified before each subsequent implementation using pre- and post-intervention assessment findings. In this way, specific components of the process can be modified, added or deleted based on current situational needs. This allows us to continually improve the effectiveness of the program and to accommodate changes in technology, energy costs, and behavior.
