On 10-10, the Dutch national Day of Sustainability, the launch of the Identify the Energy Guzzler campaign for Hanze UAS staff took place.
This campaign enables the measurement and comparison of electricity use of household devices and appliances. Hanze UAS supports this campaign to accelerate a more sustainable future.
Ten teams of five to eight staff members received an information package, a solar-powered calculator and a number of energy use monitors. They will measure the energy use of their appliances, share the results within their teams, and pass on the information to the research team. The results will be analysed and discussed during a final meeting. This way, the users can pinpoint their biggest energy guzzlers!
Due to the great amount of interest, a second round will be offered in January 2017.
