Energy Reduction Project Through Organisational Behaviour Change 2018

Parkwood Leisure

Last winter (17/18) Parkwood Leisure ran an employee engagement campaign "The Triad Challenge". The objective of the campaign was to educate and motivate staff in 42 leisure centres across England and Wales to focus on reducing Triad transmission charges without impacting upon customer experience. Engagement and success were continually monitored throughout the campaign and appropriately communicated back to a cost driven audience through use of league tables. The campaign aimed to be both informative and positive to sustain momentum and continuous improvement over the 4 month Triad season. Overall the actions taken by the leisure centre teams achieved a 20% reduction in peak electricity demand, reduced carbon emissions from electricity generation as well as alleviating pressure on the National Grid during national peak periods.
