We concluded the save@work project: the evaluation report and summary brochures are now available

In September the save@work project was concluded in the 9 participating European countries. During the project, altogether 176 public buildings in Europe participated in an energy saving campaign and competition. The research-based methodology of the project considered the theory of interpersonal behaviour, combined top-down and bottom-up approaches and recognized the importance of groups and community building. Energy was saved through changing everyday behaviour and practices. 73% of all participating managed to reduce their energy consumption on average by 8% during the campaign year. However, the most successful buildings reached a much higher saving: the winning Belgian municipality saved 25% energy.

In addition to saving energy it is important to expose the role and significance of the project in raising the awareness of employees and establishing new energy efficient behaviour and practices that can serve as the basis for future sustainable energy activities. save@work contributed to developing more knowledgeable and skilful, as well as more cohesive, employee communities that are ready to focus on making even more energy savings - an outcome that is as important as the savings achieved.

The summary European brochure about the project and its results is available from HERE.

Evaluation has been an integral part of the save@work project both for internal learning and for sharing its outcomes to facilitate the development of successful behaviour change project. You can find the various presentation of the outcomes at the following links:
