“If climate change is a result of anthropogenic activities, then solving the environmental factors, managing energy costs and energy security must all involve human activity.” Phil Griffiths, npower Business Solutions
The topic of energy efficiency has been around for decades, but few have successfully tackled and changed the behaviour of those people who occupy the buildings.
Behaviour change offers a low-cost solution to energy efficiency. Behaviour is visible, measurable and specialists are able to influence behaviour in order to improve Key Performance Indicators (KPI) which in this case are energy usage / carbon reduction.
If done properly, Behaviour Change can be as part of a series of integrated measures to deliver real, measurable reductions in energy consumption, costs and carbon, which can then be translated to Board Level to prove the essential role Sustainability plays in a competitive business.
So, how should one conduct behaviour change? Which behaviour project should you choose to action?

Energy is a commodity cost, but Energy Management is a key driver of a businesses’ profitability and competitiveness, and thus being a sustainable business is not a marketing gimmick, but a board level business enabler. This paper will show you how businesses which balance energy consumption and generation to the best commercial advantage, whilst setting an energy saving target of 20%, will realise a number of commercial opportunities including protected profitability, global competitiveness, improved cash flows and reduced carbon emissions.
