This White Paper introduces Bulbee - The Initiative for Personal Energy Sustainability as an alternative, complementary and completely viable approach for the Mitigation (Reducing emissions of and stabilizing the levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere) and the Adoption (Adapting to the climate change already in the pipeline) of Climate Change in The Residential Sector via utilization of almost untapped resource of residents themselves (from the bottom up approach).
It offers an overview of the Bulbee process –probably the most viable and cost-efficient transition to Sustainable Energy Consumption at the residential sector; and provides an assessment of how it can be applied and extended to increase the adoption of sustainable energy consumption (efficiency + renewables for self-consumption) as a standard on a global scale. Since the existing barriers are not technological but mainly cognitive and conceptual both among policy makers and end-users, the proposed alternative puts the main emphasis on dealing with these barriers.
The suggested interdisciplinary process consists of an over-time deep energy retrofit mainly focused but not limited to the existing residential buildings (private residences), and accompanied by completion of the remaining energy deficit with renewable energy for self-consumption.
Large parts of the process are designed to allow the user to perform many operations independently (in DIY manner) to reduce the involved costs; gradually - to align with end-users' subjective circumstances, and realistically - while referring to solutions that exist today and by combining the solutions to achieve maximum effectiveness for the process.
Bulbee aims to close the gap between end-users' current procrastination and taking active personal action, and it also aims to establish a collaboration between authorities and end-users' to increase chances for Mitigation and Adoption of Climate Change that threats us all.
