Webinar Overview:
As utilities plan for a new environment from the transposition of the Energy Efficiency Directive, they need scalable programmes that directly drive savings and lay the groundwork for their other efficiency programs.

Utilities around the world are increasingly turning to behavioural programs to meet these goals and supercharge their energy efficiency portfolios.

As the landscape for energy efficiency changes, it is important to consider the savings potential of these programs.

However, only a few studies have attempted to quantify their full savings potential. Opower’s new study Quantifying the Behavioural Energy Efficiency Potential of Europe is the first to analyse the achievable savings potential from behaviour change within the residential sector in this region.

Join Opower’s Associate Director of Solutions Marketing in EMEA, Emily Hallet as she shares an Opower study that assesses the country-by-country potential for behavioural interventions such as those that Opower offers. The study draws upon 218 behavioural program deployments to project energy savings potential by country, limiting the potential to what is cost effective and achievable today.

Guy Newey, Head of Environment and Energy at Policy Exchange, a leading London think tank will share the implications for 2030 carbon reduction goals, the Energy Efficiency Directive and fuel poverty. He will discuss how policymakers can incentivise programmes that support behaviour change as a way of achieving cheap reductions in emissions.

By attending this webinar, you will learn practical insights into:

  1. How behavioural energy efficiency can contribute to the EU’s longterm carbon, efficiency and fuel poverty initiatives
  2. How to structure energy savings obligations to drive savings from behavioural energy efficiency, and increase participation in other efficiency measures
  3. How utilities can use behavioural energy efficiency to improve customer service and deepen customer relationships
  4. Case studies from utilities that are successfully using this approach as the foundation of their efficiency portfolios

Energy policymakers and regulators, and professionals of energy efficiency, demand-side management and trade associations will find this webinar particularly interesting.
