The aim of the Energy Neighbourhood Project is to inspire and encourage communities to reduce energy consumption through changes in behaviour. Some 8 to 12 households form a team, the so-called Energy Neighbourhood. Each neighbourhood accepts a bet offered by the city: to win the bet (and a prize); the neighbourhood must achieve an energy savings of at least 8 % within six months compared with the previous year. Each team is coached by an Energy Master who pulls the team together and provides good incentives.
