The EI provides resources such as training and human factors tools. ABSTRACT - Previous research on factors that influence energy conservation behavior have almost without exception been restricted to demographic investigations using bivariate analyses.

The present study attempts to go beyond prior research by using a richer set of non-demographic predictors in the context of gasoline information campaigns. Human factors conservation can be achieved through increased efficient energy use, in conjunction with decreased energy consumption and/or reduced consumption from conventional energy sources.

Energy conservation can result in increased financial capital, environmental quality, national security, personal security.

Human reliability is related to the field of human factors and ergonomics, and refers to the reliability of humans in fields including manufacturing, medicine and nuclear power.

Human performance can be affected by many factors such as age, state of mind, physical health, attitude, emotions, propensity for certain common mistakes, errors and cognitive biases, etc. Human reliability is very important due to the contributions of humans.
