Effectiveness energy coaches in Rotterdam
How effective is the deployment of energy coaches? Quintens has examined a large-scale project (17,145 households with lower incomes in Rotterdam) for DCMR. To do this, we have cleaned up a large data set of energy consumption data, made it manageable, converted into annual consumption and performed statistical analyzes.
The conclusion? An energy coach has an effect: for electricity the saving is 2.7% and for gas 8.2% saving, which can be attributed to the visit of the energy coach. As a result, they have saved 5.65% in energy costs. Households in some neighborhoods also appeared to do more with the advice of the energy coaches than households in other neighborhoods: there were clear differences in the results between these neighborhoods.
