3 CHANGEWORKS Changeworks Changeworks exists to improve quality of life and to protect the environment Sustainable development charity 180 employees Resources for Life

4 CHANGEWORKS Increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable sources of energy Prevent waste from going to landfill by reducing, reusing and recycling Promote methods of transport with low environmental impact Areas of activity

5 At the end of the training, you will.. Understand the consequences of using energy Environmental Social Financial Know how to save energy In the office At home Have a plan to break habits and deliver change

6 What well cover 1.Why we need to save energy 2.Motivations for change 3.Saving energy in the office – personal energy plan 4.Saving energy in the home – personal energy plan 5.Evaluation

7 CHANGEWORKS Make it relevant Gauge opinion in the room –Mandate, Motivators and Norms Identify and recognise barriers Empower to realise benefits Focus for action Tools for change

19 Saving energy: Your top tips Space heating Water heating (inc boilers) Kitchen and Cooking Appliances and Lighting

20 Benefit: Reduced annual energy bills = £ x x 4 hours a day (50w) x 13p /kWh 4 x x 4 hours a day (9w) x 13p /kWh = £6.83

21 Benefit: Insulated homes are cheaper to heat Payback periods (even shorter with a grant) Hot water tank < 6 months Loft insulation 2 years Cavity insulation 2 years Double glazing > 20 years Floor insulation 2 years Draught proofing 8 years

22 Benefit: score well on Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) For all homes being constructed, sold or rented out Rated on energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions From January 2009 Information on FISH

24 Advice and support Energy Saving Scotland advice centre Act NOW for free, impartial advice Information on grants and typical costs Available from FISH Personalised home energy report Credit union for low cost loans

25 Writing a Personal Energy Plan: HOME

26 CHANGEWORKS Two hour session (2.5 hrs for people managers) Up to three sessions per day Over 5,000 staff trained in the last 18 months Pre and post training questionnaire via e- mail Logistics
