The Reduce Your Juice program uses ‘gamification’ to drive behavioural change. Householders engage with energy reduction messaging via a smart-phone based energy-saving game, as well as social media and email platforms. Technical elements of the program were developed in partnership with Queensland University of Technology.
Reduce Your Juice uses a unique experiential ‘learning by doing’ behavioural approach to shape behaviour, making energy saving easy, rewarding and fun. The goal is not just one-off bills savings but sustained behaviour change.
CitySmart has run Reduce Your Juice 8 times with thousands of Australian households. This includes a major engagement with the Queensland Government as part of its Energy Savvy Families program for regional Queensland.
