Title: Behavior-Based Energy Efficiency: What Is It And How Will It Benefit My Church?


1
Behavior-Based Energy Efficiency What Is It And
How Will It Benefit My Church?
  • Presented by CLASS 5 Energy
  • St. Paul, Minnesota

2
Welcome and Introductions
  • Hallberg Engineering and CLASS 5 Energy
  • Amy Anderson,CLASS 5 Energy General Manager
  • Amy HarkerCLASS 5 Energy Consultant
  • Tom MathieuCLASS 5 Energy Consultant
  • Rick LucioHallberg Engineering Vice President

3
What Are We Talking About?
Part 1
  • Defining behavior-based energy efficiency
  • The science and research behind it
  • Incorporating behavior-based energy efficiency as
    part of a comprehensive energy plan

4
Behavior-Based Energy Efficiency
  • BBEE focuses on energy savings that occur through
    changes in individual or organizational
    attitudes, behavior and decision-making.
  • Focuses on the people running the equipment,
    rather than just the equipment
  • Takes advantage of low and no-cost energy saving
    opportunities
  • Uses engagement, communication and measurement
    strategies
  • Changes the culture of your organization

5
Other Energy Approaches
  • Energy audits are assessments of needs and
    current efficiency, generally performed by
    engineers, consultants or other experts.
    Deliverable is a list of recommendations for
    improving efficiency. Cost varies, utilities
    often provide subsidies.
  • Energy Performance Contracting is a financing
    technique that uses cost savings from reduced
    energy consumption to repay the cost of
    installing energy conservation measures. Normally
    offered by Energy Service Companies (ESCOs), this
    approach allows organizations to achieve energy
    savings without up front capital expenses. The
    costs of the energy improvements are borne by the
    performance contractor. 
  • Asset plans offer options for energy efficiency
    equipment upgrades. Everything from faucets to
    lighting to heating and cooling units may be
    included in an energy asset plan. These items
    range in price. Some are DIY, some will require
    installation by an expert.

6
Energy efficiency is a growing concern among
congregations
  • Nationwide, more than 15,000 congregations have
    adopted some sort of sustainability plan

7
How Does BBEE Work?
  • Make a commitment to save energy
  • Identify a senior leader to endorse the effort
  • Form a committee of individuals to help implement
    the effort and act as peer champions
  • Set goals and plan to reward a job well done!
  • Identify opportunities in every area
  • Communicate clearly and often
  • Ask everyone to do their part and get involved

8
How Does BBEE Work?
Organizational Change Management
Technical Approach Improving business systems
and processes
Convergence over time CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Human ApproachManaging the people side of change
9
How Does BBEE Work?
  • Application of either approach, in isolation,
    generally proves unsuccessful.
  • An exclusively technical approach to issues or
    opportunities results in solutions that are
    seldom adequately implemented or supported.
  • An exclusively human approach results in an
    openness to change without any changes to the way
    things are currently being done.

10
Why Learn About Behavior-Based Energy Efficiency?
  • The most energy-efficient organizations in
    America use 35 less energy, on average, than
    their counterparts.
  • Research shows that up to 30 of energy use can
    be recovered by changes in behavior and
    operations.
  • Because true long-term success with energy
    efficiency has to include people, projects, and
    the planet.

You will leave here today with the knowledge of
how to start saving energy through changes in
behavior at your church!
11
Is BBEE A Fit for My Church?
  • Ask yourself a few key questions
  • What is driving your decision to save energy?
  • Do you have a good sense of how and where your
    energy is currently being used?
  • What resources do you have available to implement
    an energy saving effort?
  • Do you have a defined budget or time frame?
  • Where does energy efficiency fit into your
    overall strategic priorities?

12
How Does Energy Reduction Fit with Your Mission?
Part 2
  • From a business/fiscal standpoint
  • From an environmental stewardship standpoint

13
Reflection
  • Turn to page 1 in your binder.
  • From a business/fiscal standpoint ask yourself
  • Does saving energy fit with what you have been
    charged to do in your organization?
  • Would your budgetary trust support it?
  • Any additional thoughts

14
Reflection
  • From a stewardship standpoint ask yourself
  • Does saving energy fit with the mission of your
    church?
  • Would your members and the community support it?
  • Any additional thoughts

15
Share Discuss
  • DOES saving energy fit into your mission?
  • If not, should it?
  • If it does, how?

16
BREAK
  • See you back in 15 minutes!

17
How to implement behavioral-based energy
efficiency strategies
Part 3
  • Cultural Change ? Behavioral Strategies
    Operational Strategies
  • Setting goals and understanding how behavior
    strategies can be used by your church
  • Recognizing the barriers you may face when
    implementing behavioral strategies tips for
    overcoming those barriers

18
Cultural Change
  • Choices being made each day in your organization
  • Can help to change day-to-day behaviors, and
    encourage energy efficiency as a priority
  • Includes things like
  • energy efficiency in your communications
  • turn off lights when you leave a room
  • consider energy efficiency as a factor in
    purchasing equipment

19
Occupant Strategies
  • Turn to page 13 in your binder
  • Building Occupant Strategies checklist
  • Check off the ones that your staff can do
  • Cross out the ones that will not work in your
    organization
  • Think of 3 additional things your building
    occupants can do to help save energy in your
    Church

20
Operational Strategies
  • Choices being made in how your building(s) are
    run
  • Can help to run the equipment in a more efficient
    way using industry standards from ASHRAE
    (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and
    Air Conditioning Engineers) IES (Illuminating
    Engineering Society of North America), etc.
  • Includes things like
  • De-lamp over-lit areas
  • Change heating cooling set points
  • Review building schedules

21
Operational Strategies
  • Turn to page 14 in your binder
  • Operational Strategies Checklist
  • Check off the ones that your staff can do
  • Cross out the ones that will not work in your
    organization
  • Think of 3 additional things your building
    operators can do to help save energy in your
    Church

22
Plymouth Congregational Church
Case Study
  • Karen Hartz, Director of Operations
  • Experiences with Behavioral Based Energy
    Efficiency
  • Thoughts
  • Insights
  • Why they chose to participate?

23
Goal Setting and Recognizing Barriers
  • Turn to page 2 in your binder
  • What would you like to accomplish in your Church
    by saving energy?
  • How does Behavior Based Energy Efficiency
    support these goals?
  • Some examples might be
  • Save money little things like turning out lights
    and shutting down computers saves money quickly
    and is easy for my staff to do
  • Appeal to new congregants being environmentally
    conscious is becoming more and more important
    by adopting an energy plan we can meet this need
    without spending a lot of money
  • Use donations in a prudent manner saving money
    for operations means we can put donations towards
    more member support

24
Goal Setting and Recognizing Barriers
  • Turn to page 2 in your binder
  • What barriers will I face in my organization (and
    what might be a solution)?
  • Some examples might be
  • Barrier We dont have a full time operations
    team. Solution I could ask the members if
    anyone would like to volunteer time or expertise
    we must have an engineer or building operator
    in our congregation
  • Barrier Our IT is done through an outside
    company - they may have rules about the changes
    we can make to computer settings Solution I
    could ask what we CAN change. IT strategies may
    not be a big focus for my church
  • Barrier Going Green is not a big priority at
    my Church getting others on board will be a
    challenge Solution I know that Nancy, one of
    our congregants, is a Sustainability Manager.
    Maybe she will support this effort perhaps she
    would be willing to help me or have ideas about
    how to gain more buy in
