Castlemaine 500

In 2006, the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance (CVGA) secured Victorian Government support to fund a behaviour change program that would test – “by engaging a significant proportion of a township in household energy reduction – whether major savings could be achieved and measured at the regional level.” The objective was to get 500 households to commit to a long-term process that required active participation and input to achieve a 15 to 30% reduction in household energy consumption.

Castlemaine 500 was the project and used a participatory evaluation process that was built into the project from the beginning. In the report we draw on evidence from a number of evaluation methods used throughout the life of the project.
