The following is a letter from researchers at the University of Washington’s Civil & Environmental Engineering Department.
We invite you to participate in an online survey entitled: Energy Efficiency Retrofit Implementation in Buildings. This survey is part of the dissertation of Lysandra Amanta Medal, a Ph.D. Student in Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington, in collaboration with Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia.
The research will investigate the decision processes related to prioritizing building energy efficiency retrofit projects. Your response will provide valuable insight that will be used to investigate the key considerations when implementing energy efficiency retrofit in a portfolio of buildings in a global context. In addition, participants may choose to be entered in a drawing to win one of fifteen (15) $20 Starbucks gift cards. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Below is the link to the survey:
Please consider participating in this survey if you meet one of the following criteria:
