How motivation and digitalisation can drive behaviour change in industry

Panel: 3. Energy management: The nuts and bolts

Andreas Gürtler, European Industrial Insulation Foundation, Switzerland
Luis Lopez Brunner, EiiF, Switzerland


The presentation of EiiF will show how the combination of motivation programmes with the use of digital reporting tools can help to change the behaviour of workers and asset owners towards energy efficiency.

Following the principle: "You don't know, what you don't know, until you know" and based on the TIPCHECK experiences EiiF is developing a digital tool for asset owners and their employees to inspect their own facilities for energy efficiency potentials like insulation potentials, switch off machine potentials (reporting if and when machines are running without producing), safety issues (e.g. too high surface temperatures, blocked emergency exits, etc.) and general risks and failures (like leakage or corrosion detection).

The programme is still under development but will be ready to be presented in June 2018. For legal and copyright reasons it is unfortunately not possible to give more details now and in this abstract. But it is planned to present in June:

– The inspection programme (motivation & digital)

– The used technical devices and app(s)

– First case studies

– if possible and wanted by eceee – it's practical use (it might be possible that all participants can download a demo app and report efficiency failures of the venue – if there are any – back to eceee/EiiF)
