Get your users involved and enthusiastic – or prepare for your energy-saving project to fail.
You can put many measures in place to reduce energy use, but very few changes can be implemented, or the full benefits realised, without co-operation from users. Users need to be on board; this can be difficult to achieve as most people see energy as essential and expect that it is both cheap and on tap.
As the impacts of energy use including both financial costs and environmental impacts are rarely evident or immediately obvious, it does not encourage users to be mindful of their behaviour.
