HOW TO OPERATE AN ENERGY ADVISORY SERVICE. VOLUME I. REPORT AND RECOMMENDATIONS. FINAL REPORT

An experimental Energy Advisory Service was created and operated by the New York Institute of Technology to test the effectiveness of various channels of communication in the dissemination of energy conservation information and technical assistance to homeowners, architects, engineers, builders, contractors, business persons, public officials, and the media. A telephone Hot Line, a comprehensive Energy Insformation Center, and a broad gauge Referral Service were operated as a unified complex and serviced more than 5,000 Hot Line inquiries from homeowners (67%) and others (33%). An innovative Interactive Television Seminar series serviced 2,200 professionals directly and indirectly with videotaped material and live discussion on all aspects of energy conservation. Follow-up surveys indicated that the large majority of all users believed the Energy Advisory Service was valuable, reliable and unique as a comprehensive, easily accessible source of information and technical assistance on energy conservation and alternative energy systems.
