Energy Wise Alliance

Dates: January 2016 - Ongoing

Project: Energy Wise Alliance is a New Orleans based non-profit geared towards bringing "cost-conscious energy efficiency solutions to the people of Louisiana to save money and help the environment."  Flux worked with Energy Wise to remodel their data collection instruments to ensure that the format reflected best practices in data collection instrument design. By utilizing semi-structured conversations with Energy Wise staff to understand workflows, bottlenecks and capacity through exploration of different analysis systems, Flux was able to modify structure and content of the instruments, reflecting the underlying principles of minimizing respondent time, data input and processing time and maximizing comprehensibility for respondents.
