accountability for realizing energy efficiency goals, leading to programs relying on contributions
from volunteers with competing priorities. 6.4 Suggestions for further research There are significant further research opportunities on this general topic. Recommended subjects
" Optimization of user interface for real-time feedback dashboard: It is possible that
poor usability of the feedback interface in terms of visibility, learnability, efficiency and/or error
prevention prevented greater savings from being achieved. A variety of similar products now
exist for residential use, and it would be interesting to research how an optimized interface
for a manufacturing facility would be implemented based on design principles and further
experimentation with users.
" Overcoming barriers to right-sizing equipment: Some hypothesized barriers, mostly supported by existing literature, to right-sizing equipment were advanced in this paper, but
a treatment of how to overcome those barriers (if they indeed exist) in manufacturing organizations was not proposed. For example, one c...
