Main objectives of the project

The overall aim of the project is to empower consumers by involving and informing them, helping them take measures to save energy on the basis of the information they read on their meters or on their bills. This aim can be translated in to three general objectives:

  • Achieving measurable energy savings (absolute savings and also peak demand reduction).
  • Increasing awareness and motivation of consumers with respect to energy efficiency.
  • Increasing trust between consumers and energy suppliers as a pre‐requisite for increasing energy performance for mutual benefit.
