Energy in Work

01 | our goal

What is the Energy in Work project about ?

Energy in Work explores energy saving potential of new working models of office jobs, i.e., new ways of where, how, when, and how much people work, with a particular emphasis on efficient and reduced use of working space.


Assessment of existing and emerging working models:


  • Impacts on overall energy consumption, employee well-being and performance
  • Required changes in infrastructure and working regimes.


Co-design of new, energy-saving working models together with employees, employers, facility and property managers, scientists, and other stakeholders. 



Implementation of socio-technical solutions for energy-efficient and user-oriented workplaces:


  • Testing of new working models for different workplaces and working time regimes, tailored to different target groups 
  • Definition of typologies of infrastructure enabling workspace sharing 
  • Definition of technical-economic feasibility studies supporting energy retrofit of buildings in need of functional change for novel working contexts; 
  • Definition of solutions and attractive concepts of living for a flexible use of space of living and recreation to prevent backfire effects 
  • Conceptualisation of a digital platform for workspace sharing
