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.

Communicate the benefits of energy and water consumption efficiency and stimulate saving
Country: 
Lithuania
Target Group: 
Households / consumers
Date: 
1998 - 1999
Based on the situation of the Lithuanian energy sector in 1997, the idea emerged to raise awareness of energy saving issues in the residential sector in Lithuania. The main idea was to implement an advertisement campaign, revealing the benefits of energy and water reservoir saving. A five-year campaign and strategy to raise awareness of energy efficiency was set up. For the implementation of these strategy measures the ‘Taupukas’ programme was created (in English - ‘little saver’).
Promote energy modernisation of apartment buildings via demonstrations and subsidies
Country: 
Lithuania
Target Group: 
Owners of houses, buildings or apartments

The modernization programme covers one type of buildings: multi-apartment buildings (block of flats). This type of buildings amounts to a major share of the energy consumption and have high energy saving potential. Saving potential is significant when energy prices became unpredictable. Apartment buildings in Lithuania, compared with countries in the European Union, use much more energy for heating.
