Big business to sing from same hymn sheet over energy savings
The Big Energy Vision is a new multi-partner campaign to empower UK households to take control of rising energy bills.
Supported by both big businesses - including Kingfisher, John Lewis, Home Retail Group and Calor - and leading charities (such as National Trust and Citizens Advice), the initiative is being coordinated by not-for-profit organisations Forum for the Future and Behaviour Change.
The campaign aims to counter the frustration, confusion and distrust that currently dominates the consumer mindset over energy costs by highlighting positive, practical actions people can take. From smart meters and digital technology, to installing insulation and buying efficient appliances, from washing at 30°C to switching tariffs, the partnership will present a coherent picture of the ways in which households can ‘use less, waste less and pay less’.
The organisations in the partnership will be working together to communicate clear, simple and consistent messaging about the things people can do to control their bills and helping their customers, supporters and staff take action. Sitting behind this effort is a comprehensive set of ‘energy control’ tools and messages created by the group.
The campaign will be updating on progress in Spring 2015 and the partners behind the Big Energy Vision are keen for more organisations to join.
