Title: Durhams Energy Consumption Display Campaign
Durham County Council (UK) is the first and only municipality in Europe to display energy performance certificates in all its buildings. The Display™ program has been one of the least expensive initiatives (the licence cost £300) that the County Council has conducted. The impact of the campaign has been that building users are keen to improve the performance of their buildings. This has resulted in a 1.8% reduction in fossil fuel use with a £54,000 saving despite an increase in fossil fuel unit costs.
