The SEACS project trialled various tools and techniques to change behaviour and reduce energy consumption in public buildings, as well as helping home workers reduce their work related energy consumption.
This Public Building toolkit contains the descriptions of how the SEACS partners used the tools, and provides links to where you can find the tools online. The toolkit is aimed at facilities managers, energy managers and sustainability managers responsible for any type of commercial building. The tools are split into three categories:
Tools that offer assistance. E.g. how to plan a behaviour change campaign or conduct a simple walk round energy survey.
Tools that can be used to measure energy data. E.g. real time energy consumption or log temperature.
Tools that can be used to change attitudes towards energy and raise awareness of the issues.
Finally, the toolkit contains five case studies describing how the tools were used by each SEACS partner to change behaviour of staff in public buildings. These case studies are listed below:
