Welcome to save@work - helping offices to save energy and cut carbon.

General Idea

In each partner country 20 public office buildings and their staff will actively take part in the campaign to promote energy saving behaviour in the work place.

Green Clicks

…for individual members of staff the Green Clicks online tool will help individuals to look at the energy usage of their own work station, providing tips on how they can reduce it.

Energy Teams

Each building will form its own Energy Team, a key group of individuals drawn from amongst the employee’s. The team will receive the support and training needed to carry out a simplified energy audit of their building.

Energy Savings Tool

…for the energy team and building a specially developed online calculation tool has been created to which the Energy Team will regularly add meter readings thereby showing staff how much energy the building is saving against its consumption in previous years.

Action Plan

On the basis of the energy audit, staff will be supported in drawing up an action plan of low cost and behavioural change measures as well as longer-term measures for possible investment in building renovation.

Competition

Throughout the duration of the project, each building will compete against all 180 public office buildings from 9 countries , to see who can make the greatest energy savings

Information Campaign

On the back of this action plan, the Energy team will run an information campaign amongst their colleagues, encouraging them to look at reducing their energy use. To help them do this there are 2 online tools.

Winners Selected

At the end of the competition period the winners for both the national and European wide competitions will be selected. The methodology for how this will be done can be downloaded below.
