This first phase of an evolving bibliography was developed for a project to assess users' understanding and management of energy on a daily and on-going basis. While there is more attention paid to the larger, cost-intensive decisions re. heating systems and window glazing or weather-stripping, there is relatively little information on why someone decides to turn up a thermostat rather than put on another layer of clothing, or the decision to leave a light on in an empty room. We are interested in the behavioral aspects of energy use and sustainability, rather than focusing on physical changes to the building envelope. In exploring these decisions, we have targeted ethnographic research on daily patterns of use, but given the relatively limited availability of such information, and the dated quality of some of the research, this bibliography takes a substantially broader view of the research on sustainability.
