Energikontor Sydost was the National Coordinator of the project: “Energy Neighbourhoods”, an IEE-project which was rewarded a prize. The idea was to let groups of households challenge each other to save energy, as much as possible. To reduce climate change it is necessary to influence the households since they are large energy users. Energy Neighbourhoods stimulated an increased awareness about energy and changed the participant’s everyday behaviour while having a good time.
