Energy Saving Trust Home Energy Check

Our partners, the Energy Saving Trust asked us to work with them to create a new Home Energy Check tool. Their previous tool had a high drop-out rate due to the number of questions that had to be answered, a key requirement was to provide results for those that wanted results quickly.

Energy Saving Trust is a social enterprise that offers impartial advice to communities and households on how to reduce carbon emissions, use water more sustainably and save money on energy bills. Their Home Energy Check helps people to find out the overall energy efficiency of their home, and the carbon emissions they produce.  They can then see what improvements they can make – to use less energy, save on carbon emissions, improve their Energy Performance Certificate rating, and save money. They take away a full report with all the details of their home’s energy use and the savings they could make.

Try the Home Energy Check here.

John Lewis is currently running a trial in the Bristol area offering an Energy Efficiency advice service, home assessment and installation of a selected range of improvements. We developed a set of tools to help them take customers from initial engagement to a point where they are able to make a decision and install improvements.  A customer facing ‘energy efficiency calculator’ tool is available on their website and in store at a touch screen terminal. It allows users to explore their options for improved energy efficiency in their own time and see the products that John Lewis are able to offer, when ready they can request a home visit from a John Lewis assessor. Further to this a more detailed assessor tool is used as part of a home visit to generate a more detailed report and to aid the assessor in discussing the options that might be suitable for the household.
