ETH Zurich’s Shower Feedback Pilot Receives International Distinction

ETH Zurich’s Shower Feedback Pilot has just received an international distinction – designation as a “Landmark” (best practice) case study through Tools of Change’s peer review process. The peer review panel found that the approach used in the pilot was a highly replicable and innovative one that yields impressive results (a 22% savings in water and energy use compared to a control group).

This year’s panelists included a member from an on-the-ground program as well as from some of North America’s most proactive consulting, NGO, and government organizations supporting energy conservation professionals. They include Arien Korteland from BC Hydro, Doug McKenzie-Mohr of McKenzie-Mohr Associates, Brian Smith from the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Marsha Walton from the New York State Energy, Research and Development Authority and Dan York of ACEEE.
