BRI’s Behavior Research Published

 

 

Brockport Research Institute is pleased to share a new publication by NYSERDA that features an update on one of our projects.  NYSERDA’s behavior research pilots use science-based strategies to overcome cognitive barriers to clean energy adoption and behavior change and support the Reforming the Energy Vision Program (REV).

Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) is Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s comprehensive energy strategy for New York. REV helps consumers make more informed energy choices, develop new energy products and services, and protect the environment while creating new jobs and economic opportunity throughout the State.

6 pilots are featured in this study.  The third pilot featured, “Influencing condo/co-op boards in NYC to upgrade common area lighting to LED lighting” (page 6 in study),  was completed by BRI.  Click here to see the full publication.
