The behaviour change team at LSI uses years of experience in health psychology to tap into underlying themes affecting the health and wellbeing and efficient energy use. Our research into the technical performance of buildings and energy is perfectly complimented by investigations into occupant understanding and how to manage their buildings to be comfortable, healthy and efficient, particularly with regards to mitigating fuel poverty, damp and acceptance of new technologies.
For example we have identified that occupants can have an even greater influence on the conditions in the homes than any underlying technical failings and so the potential for finding behavioural change based solutions to improving building performance and occupant wellbeing.
