Ändrade beteenden på sjukhus sparar energi

Som en liten julgåva ber IEA DSM University att få bjuda på ett webinarium. Vi är väl medvetna om att ändrade beteenden är viktiga och nödvändiga, men hur gör man i verkligheten? Det kan vi berätta!

How to design, implement and evaluate behaviour change interventions in a sector that is often overlooked but has huge energy efficiency potentials: hospitals

Duration: 1h

The Carolina Healthcare System (CHS) in the Carolinas is among the leading, and largest healthcare organisations in the U.S., employing 62,000 people in 940 care locations. The system has 7,500 beds and over 12 million patient encounters every year. In its commitment to energy management, efficiency and conservation, the organisation is pursuing strategies to decrease its energy use. One such strategy is implementing programmes that encourage building facilities staff to change their behaviour. The first phase in the CHS behaviour change program, Energy Connect, is an intervention that encourages operators to detect and act on energy inefficiencies within the buildings they are responsible for. Building operators account for a small percentage of people in each building, but have a disproportionally high impact on energy use. Therefore, if they were to change their behaviours, they could dramatically reduce overall energy use. IEA DSM Task 24 and ACEEE’s Behavior and Human Dimensions of Energy Efficiency program helped the Sustainability Director of CHS to co-create a highly collaborative behaviour change field trial.

DÃ¥ och dÃ¥ kommer det kraftig kritik mot de energiscenarier som till exempel IEA publicerar i sina Ã¥rliga skrifter. Som senast den här frÃ¥n en organisation som heter Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) och har skrivit en rapport med det klatschiga namnet “Off Track”.

The International Energy Agency has wrongly guided governments into decisions about oil, gas and coal use that are inconsistent with the long-term climate objectives of the Paris Agreement

Men är det sant? Är det IEA som vilseleder? Så här förklarar IEA hur scenarierna konstrueras (jämför med bild nedan)

- New Policies Scenario of the World Energy Outlook broadly serves as the IEA baseline scenario. It takes account of broad policy commitments and plans that have been announced by countries, including national pledges to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and plans to phase out fossil-energy subsidies, even if the measures to implement these commitments have yet to be identified or announced.

- Current Policies Scenario assumes no changes in policies from the mid-point of the year of publication (previously called the Reference Scenario).

- 450 Scenario sets out an energy pathway consistent with the goal of limiting the global increase in temperature to 2°C by limiting concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to around 450 parts per million of CO2.

Två av de scenarier som presenteras är alltså reflexioner av vad som händer i världen och det som är på väg att hända till följd av de beslut som fattats i olika beslutsorgan (länder, samarbetsorganisationer mm). Det är bilder INTE rekommendationer!

Om vi inte gillar det vi ser måste vi kanske rätta till de egna anletsdragen. Men klandra inte spegeln!
