Changing energy use behaviour at the workplace
Country: 
Lithuania
Target Group: 
Offices and SMEs

The project aims to reduce energy consumption in office buildings by influencing employees' behaviour. Office buildings often have modern technical infrastructure, but the behaviour of employees may prevent potential energy savings. People tends to use energy more wastefully at work than they do at home, as most often they have no financial incentive to save energy at their workplaces. Therefore, there is quite a challenge to find ways to encourage people to save energy at their workplace.
