Management and behaviour
Designed internal competition to motivate tenants. 9 tenants representing 23,000 m2 (56%) participated by submitting their energy bills to the property manager. The most efficient were verified and the winning team was invited out for lunch.
Held meetings with tenants to share information about the contest and the team’s goals
Posted creative flyers and leaflets, using the CUBE 2020 resources (such as stickers and tips)
Held free events to raise awareness among tenants
Hosted a “Bike day”. Installed bike pumps for those already commuting by bike, as well as additional bike spaces and new showers on the ground floor.
Minor technical and re-programming
Lighting, especially in the common areas like the garage, was identified as a considerable source of consumption that could be improved with minimal investment and a quick ROI. The lighting in the garage was updated, with 50% of the lighting programmed to shut down after 19h in the garage
The humidity system was also identified as substantial source of consumption and was under analysis to optimise in 2019/2020
Some technical constraints were encountered, namely updating screens and the network in the elevators there were also some technical issues with the BMS system while installing new lighting in the parking garage
Don't just take it from us
