Energy Challenges is a great project! It proves that energy saving yields money. The thing I like is that youths actively participate in a social challenge!

This is how it works

CAMPAIGN

Each school forms a team of ‘Energizers’, who take the lead in making the school and environment more sustainable. During the campaign season, the teams will venture out in the world of energy, technology and sustainability and move from knowledge to action and results! The campaign season starts with a slamming kick-off and ends with a festive finale.

The energizers all get a big poster on which they can earn eight stars for their achievements. The steps of the stars challenge them to come up with original and creative actions which correspond to school, environment and the talents of the youths. Only by changing your behavior you can already save 15%!

TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD IN 3 STEPS!

1. Behavior

Behavior plays an important role in saving energy! By changing behavior reducing energy usage with 10% is easily obtainable without any technical interference. Energy Challenges challenges youths to reduce the energy bill and enthusing school and its surroundings over energy saving.

2. Technology

Technology plays a key-role at Energy Challenges. First of all, the technology makes the energy-usage – and savings – immediately visible for participating youths. Second, technical inventories are done which contribute to making the school building more sustainable.

3. Saving (measurable & visible)

Participating schools are equipped with smart meters and measuring equipment. This gives real time insight in the gas-, electricity, and water usage. The student, the teacher or another manager can log in online with smartphone or computer and view the energy usage and the effect of their measures at any time.
