What are the most effective demand-based strategies and incentives for reducing energy consumption in Public Housing?

The project will be undertaken in three phases: Phase I – identify and recruit a sample PHAs to participate in this study; Phase II – develop policies and recommended subsidy-related incentives to encourage participation in the initiative and energy efficiency; Phase III – implement and document the achieved savings resulting from the executed initiative.

Related Questions:
1. What elements should a demand-based engagement program have that lead to a reasonable expectation of changing behavior to achieve energy savings at various thresholds?
2. In master-metered PHAs, what demand-side incentives and education tools are effective in encouraging building-/development-wide behavioral change?
3. How can utility providers be involved in reducing per building or development costs to housing authorities? What incentives are there for utility providers to engage these types of activities?
