How to engage the human factor in Energy Efficiency

Everybody is talking about including the human factor in Energy Efficiency. If you search on the Internet, you don't find much. So, how can you do it? What about mobile phone applications for Health & Safety (H&S)? Every employee can have them, photograph & report problems and send them to the H&S manager. No paperwork anymore and even a “Thank you” on your phone! What if we use it also for Energy Efficiency? With so many eyes in the enterprise, everybody can be engaged to improve Energy Efficiency. This will increase energy awareness all over the enterprise. Good ideas don’t die in the mind: they are in a minute at the desk of the Energy Manager and get generous feed back. It is also smart to use 1 App for 2 areas.
