Awareness of customers and employees
Energy efficiency starts with awareness. To increase the knowledge of customers about their energy consumption Stedin initiated the Social Energy project, with participants in city districts in The Hague and Utrecht. We give the residents insight into their energy behaviour, compare their consumption and organise participants information sessions. We also stimulate awareness among our employees. We have formed the internal Social Energy community. Nearly one hundred employees participate and are introduced to new developments. This Social Energy approach also teaches us a lot about offering smart meters to our customers as well as the installation and the acceptance of these meters.
Green idea, good idea
Joulz has been running the internal campaign ' Green idea, good idea ' since 2011. Since the start, employees have submitted over 400 ideas. More than 50 ideas have actually been implemented. To reward employees for their sustainable ideas and promote involvement with sustainability, Stedin and Joulz have jointly funded and planted half a hectare of forest in the nature reserve Bentwoud.
