The overarching goal of this research is to identify the optimal methods for visualizing building performance information in commercial buildings. The current phase consists of three research activities: (1) product reviews of building visualization software products; (2) a study of expert users regarding attitudes and practices regarding visualization of energy and other building metrics; and (3) a survey of workplace occupants to understand how they use building energy information, and whether improved access to this information will encourage energy conservation behaviors in the workplace.
