Addressing Energy Culture and attitudes to energy management throughout your organisation is often a low-cost, high return solution to operational performance and cost overhead reduction.
In addition to our expertise in this area, having developed the Energy Institutes formal guidance, we are also able to validate the impact of the delivered programme through our Technical Energy Centre (TEC) and IPMVP specialists.
Engaging all strata of an organisation and workforce in driving forward energy efficiency, by embedding a strong Energy Culture into day-to-day business, is key to ongoing performance.
Energy culture refers to the behaviours and attitudes of the workforce within an organisation towards energy management. It is less about what the individual believes they should be doing, but more about how they understand their part in the wider Energy Management System. Whether they actively take part, what they think about it and how they go beyond base requirements to try to improve the energy management system.
Outstanding performance and continual improvement will only be achieved when there is a significant cultural shift in the organisation so that the key elements of energy management are adopted and embraced fully through systemic behavioural change.
We build and deliver bespoke Energy Culture programmes, specific to your business’ operations, structure, geographical reach and drivers; based on the Energy Institute’s ‘Understanding your Energy Culture’ methodology – which we developed as part of the EI’s ‘Hearts & Minds’ series.
Through an initial series of workshops, we identify your organisation’s current Energy Culture status. Individuals from all areas of your business will be guided through a structured process to recognise and appreciate the attitudes and behaviours that contribute to positive energy performance.
We work collaboratively with key stakeholders to produce a detailed plan of engagement activities to strengthen a culture of proactive energy management across all layers of your business.
