Behaviour change and office energy use

– lessons from an experiment by Carbon Smart

Engage People - Facilitating changes in working practices

Seemingly small, simple actions can lead to drastic change in energy related behaviour in the workplace. Carbon Smart conducted a behaviour change field experiment from July to August 2013 in collaboration with Imperial College London.

The controlled experiment measured the effectiveness of different interventions to save energy by changing employee behaviour. Investigations like this are key to establishing the optimum methods to use with our client organisations for the greatest positive effects.
