The Carbon Trust and Smart Energy GB have teamed up to publish an employers’ guide to designing and running an energy efficiency awareness campaign.
The 28-page guide is part of Smart Energy GB’s national Smart Energy Employers campaign, and includes how to give practical advice to employees on how they can benefit from smart meters and saving energy at home.
Smart Energy GB is the government-backed body overseeing the national smart meter rollout.
Encouraging employees to save energy at home can help relieve financial pressure, build a more motivated workforce and inspire people to save energy in the workplace, Smart Energy GB states.
“The resources available in this guide are a great opportunity for employers to start discussions with employees around energy and smart meters – helping to spark behaviour change both at home and in the workplace”, Sacha Deshmukh, chief executive of Smart Energy GB.
“The guide outlines a series of opportunities to engage with the campaign, from sharing information in newsletters, through to providing your employees with the option to work from home and get a smart meter installed.”
Tom Delay, chief executive of the Carbon Trust added: “Good quality measurement is the first step to effective management of energy. Understanding patterns of energy use can help highlight where you can reduce waste and costs, both in the workplace and at home.”
Leading organisations already supporting the Smart Energy Employers scheme include the NHS, Hilton Hotels and Adnams.
