Blackboard Information Sheets (BISH)

- for improving user behaviour in buildings.

Many reservations against energy conservation and renewable energies result from lack of knowledge and ignorance on this subject in the different social, age and professional groups. The user behaviour has a strong influence on the energy performance of buildings, it can increase or decrease the energy consumption for heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting by more than 50%. Additionally it can influence the indoor comfort. A change to a better user behaviour is a no-cost measure for the building owner and will therefore be supported by them.
For different target groups (occupants like pupils and teachers or office workers / care-takers and maintenance personnel / administration) simple blackboard information sheets have been developed specifically, that inform on positive or negative influence possibilities to the energy consumption and indoor comfort of buildings. Besides showing the energy consumption and cost differences it will give advice on how to improve the comfort level with no- and low-cost measures.
