Energy Champion training

Summary:

Severn Trent Water’s business objectives commit to a reduction in energy consumption year on year.  A programme of large capital projects will achieve only part of this.   There is recognition in the organisation that the other part needs to be achieved through changes to everyday behaviour and that this is where Energy Champions in their own work area could make a difference in rolling out and sustaining behavioural change initiatives with the aim to achieve energy reduction. 

JRP prepared and delivered a bespoke Energy Champion training programme for a select group of 20 people with different skill levels and experience.  Severn Trent Water have a dedicated energy management team and this training was targeted primarily at that team.

Results:

Over £100k of potential savings were identified during the training programme.

The training resulted in:

  • Greater team cohesion
  • Improved engagement with energy saving
  • Better understanding of specific technologies
  • Production of a ‘live’ energy action plan

Over £100k potential savings identified as part of the course “The programme catered really well for a wide range of energy experience, from dedicated energy project managers to frontline operators. The understanding we gained and the exercises we worked through together have helped us find and deliver energy savings and helped hone the skills we need to manage energy well. It also turned out to be a great team building exercise for everyone involved.” Howard Perry, STW Energy Manager.
