Abstract

Abstract/Summary Queensland’s Government Energy Management Strategy (GEMS) seeks to reduce energy use in Queensland Government owned and leased buildings, generating substantial cost savings for government while reducing greenhouse emissions. Electricity and water consumption are being specifically targeted. This research project acted as a pilot study in the investigation of the use of Virtual Reality (VR) Modelling to facilitate communication about energy efficient technologies and behaviours.

Virtual Reality software was used to model offices on Level 10 and 11 of the Queensland Audit Office. The software enabled users to navigate around their virtual office using a typical first person shooter interface that is found in many computer games.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
