This chapter aims to determine the trends in energy consumption patterns among residents of typical apartment dwelling in Dhaka, Bangladesh, utilising water, gas, and electricity as indicators. Green activities have increased in Bangladesh during the last decade as a result of increased urbanisation and a high concentration of industry. Some supportive variables are studied in this chapter in order to enable and assure that it continues to flourish. One of the most important drivers of the country’s market preparedness for green activities is the residents’ degree of knowledge. To demonstrate this, data on energy usage patterns were collected from Dhaka households over a two-year period between 2011 and 2019. Because the city and the environment are a symbiosis and not one without the other, a demand for city rehabilitation is always in action in tandem with the city’s development. The human dynamic is analysed by aggregating residents’ responses in order to determine whether or not humans are the most important determinant in the structure or destruction of the metropolis. Over the course of a decade, this research has found that becoming conscious citizens and starting change with one person is the most effective way to affect change locally, nationally, and worldwide.
