Energy Training


Inspire employees to take responsibility


Harness internal expertise to deliver results


Deliver results through employee engagement

Your employees can be your most powerful asset in achieving and sustaining energy and cost savings. They know your business processes and operations better than an outside consultant, and can be best placed to identify and implement energy saving opportunities.

We know that savings achieved through changing behaviours can equal or exceed savings made through capital investment projects – at a fraction of the cost! We know how changing behaviour can have a direct and significant impact on saving energy.  For example, we worked with one client to deliver a best practice LED lighting project which required a capital investment of £480k.  The project was a real success and achieved energy savings representing 7½% pa of total site consumption.  We delivered a behaviour management training programme to the same client for £50k and they also achieved similar energy savings of 7½% pa.

Becoming an Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCO)

JRP have both Registered EnCO Consultants and an Approved EnCO Practitioner and are very experienced in delivering energy behaviour change programmes. We would be delighted to support your organisation to achieving EnCO Registered Organisation status.

What is an EnCO?

An EnCO* is an organisation that is externally recognised as measurably reducing energy consumption by applying behaviour change techniques. You can see a short video here.

Why is behaviour change needed?

diagram of head showing brain

There is hard commercial evidence to show that changing behaviours to embed and maintain a good energy culture can easily make savings equal to or in excess of traditional engineered improvements. These opportunities to change behaviour have the potential to deliver 50 per cent of total potential energy savings.

Behavioural change means saving energy by transforming practices to reduce or avoid consumption. This includes obvious measures such as turning off devices from lights to air conditioning, setting conditions at the right level or time, and identifying simple low-cost energy improvement projects both for organisations as a whole and the individuals they comprise. But good energy behaviour goes far beyond this: it is about senior management decision-making, standards, policies, plans and, importantly, optimising the technology used.

Why become an EnCO?

The benefits from becoming an EnCO are considerable:

  • Energy waste and costs will be significantly reduced and savings will be sustained
  • Provides a stimulus to continually improve energy performance
  • Greenhouse Gas emissions will be substantially reduced
  • Savings will be evidenced and measurable
  • Employees will be engaged and motivated
  • Demonstrates good practice to shareholders, regulators, clients/customers, stakeholders and employees
  • Stresses to the business caused by rising energy prices will be reduced
  • Any money saved can be turned to profit or used to invest elsewhere in the business
  • There are social gains of reduced environmental impact
  • EnCO recognition will help gain access to business opportunities and procurement frameworks
  • Becoming part of the wider EnCO community will enable sharing of good practice
  • The organisation’s ability to attract new talent will be improved

How to become an EnCO Registered Organisation

To become EnCO Registered, an organisation must implement a holistic behaviour change programme and complete a registration process. There are over 140 behaviour change interventions that can be applied to any programme, each making a difference in reducing energy consumption.

If you are interested in finding out about your organisation becoming EnCO registered, or are interested in finding out more about how JRP could support you and/or your organisation to deliver a behaviour change programme, please email or call 0800 6127 567.

*The EnCO initiative was launched by ESTA (The Energy Services and Technology Association) in conjunction with the EI (Energy Institute) with the aim of registering as many organisations as possible who apply behaviour change techniques in order to measurably reduce energy consumption.
