Motivation Factors in Energy Saving Behaviour between Occupants in Green and Conventional Buildings — Malaysia Case Study

Nurul Sakina Mokhtar Azizi and Suzanne Wilkinson
Abstract—Previous studies showed that green buildings may influence occupants attitude and behavior. However, there was limited understanding on how green building influences occupants attitude and behavior. The objective of this paper investigates are green building occupants motivation to save energy different to conventional building occupants. The innovativeness of this study is that it compares the motivation factors between green and conventional buildings, as previous studies have not compared between both building types. The findings in this paper showed that both certified and non-certified green buildings motivated half of the occupants to practice energy saving behaviour.

Index Terms—Energy saving behaviour, motivation, green buildings, office buildings.
