Christine Hammer joined Brightworks with extensive experience as a LEED project manager and facilitator of sustainable occupant behavior.
She has also been a publisher and researcher, founding GreenClips, which operated from 1996-2006, and then providing government agencies and utilities with research to make policy, improve energy efficiency programs, and educate the public and designers. She has conducted literature reviews on the behavioral aspects of energy consumption; used ethnography, surveys, and interviews to study the energy habits of targeted populations; and designed and implemented strategies to engage targeted populations in saving energy.
Chris has also created occupant engagement efforts to increase recycling and reduce energy and water consumption in commercial office buildings and schools using community-based social marketing (CBSM) methods.
In planning and implementing behavior change programs, Chris identifies target behaviors, defines behavior change strategies (prompts, goals, pledges), and measures energy consumption before and after intervention.
