Non-structural Energy Management: Energy Saving through Behavior Change

Course is HRDF Claimable.

Training Summary

Building users contribute to the energy usage of a building and their habit in using energy affect the building energy performance. The non-structural energy management approach provides non-technology solutions and low-cost approach for the organization to achieve better energy savings by improving building user’s energy practices, and this can be achieved by applying emerging behavioural tools.

It is expected energy managers who have attended this workshop, will able to plan and implement systematic approach by integrating the behavioural tools in the planning to foster energy practices among the building users.
