Research has yet to develop an all-encompassing strategy to promote energy conservation, but there already exists methods of developing behavior change programs. This chapter will use the adaptive management process to create such a program for Chapman University residence halls. It is recommended that pilots incorporate existing data, monitor changes, adjust strategies, and eventually contribute to the emerging field of energy behavior change. Creating an energy-conscious community at Chapman, while a challenge, is possible.
