“To me changing energy behaviour means building demand for sustainable renewable energy. Increasing demand for renewable energy results in decreasing demand for energy from fossil and nuclear sources. Sales and marketing of renewable energy targeting electricity suppliers is therefore crucial for reaching my goal of changing energy behaviour, moving towards a more sustainable energy consumption and production.”
