In 2005, Brussels began introducing schemes to support and educate the households regarding energy saving in buildings and transportation. The Energy Challenge offers households a fun and socially responsible way of fighting climate change. It encourages them to make major reductions to their energy consumption and CO2 emissions simply by changing certain daily habits, and hence without the need for any financial investment. With this aim in mind, each household that participates in the Energy Challenge identifies concrete actions that they commit to implementing.

The average reduction of energy consumption is around 18%, and one ton of CO2 emission is being spared. Moreover, with a fuel consumption reduction of around 100 L every year, another 160€ and 1/4 t CO2 are saved.
