A model for change

Energy consumption and cost savings opportunities result from the simultaneous interaction of behavioural, organizational and technological changes.

Using the diagram below, we can illustrate this inter-relationship as it affects the energy performance of a building. The intersection of all three elements represents your optimal holistic and sustainable goal. Integrating these elements is a continuous, dynamic process. It is important to keep this process in mind to establish the key conditions required to maximize and sustain your organization's energy savings.
