This project examines the site net energy consumption of a sample of units in the West Village community at the University of California Davis (UC Davis). The three primary goals are as follows:
- Study energy consumption and production in order to determine if this West Village sample is achieving its site zero net energy (ZNE) goals.
- Determine the impact of technical interventions and resident behavior engagement activities. Technical interventions are actions that address equipment performance and resident behavior engagements are tools to educate and encourage residents to reduce their energy consumption.
- Use the project findings to introduce additional behavioral and technical interventions to move the West Village site closer to ZNE consumption.
