Abstract
The energy consumption in operation and maintenance stage of construction project accounts for 80% of the whole project life cycle and therefore research on influence factors of energy consumption in project operation and maintenance stage is of great practical significance. Based on data of 260 valid questionnaires in Jiangsu area, structural equation model is adopted in the Thesis for empirical research on influence factors in operation and maintenance stage. Based on theoretical analysis and factor analysis, the conceptual model and research hypothesis for influence factors of energy consumption in operation and maintenance stage are proposed to establish structural equation model and to carry out empirical test on conceptual model as well as research and construction. The research results show that: (1) the government policy has obvious positive effects on selection and adoption of energy-saving technology as well as energy conservation will of project participates (2) cognition of the public has obvious effects on energy conservation will, energysaving technology has obvious effects on facility management and facility management has obvious effects on users’ cognition (3) the direct influences of government policy on energy-saving technology and users’ cognition have not reached the significance level specified in statistics and the direct influences of facility management and energy-saving technology on energy conservation will have also not reached the significance level specified in statistics.
