The objective of this study was to examine the impact of measuring and rewarding energy efficiency on work motivation. The goal was to find out, whether measuring and rewarding energy efficiency are experienced as motivating in the case company and how these elements should be further developed so that work motivation could be expected to improve.
The theoretical part of the study was compiled out of a wide range of research articles, reports and academic textbooks concerning performance measurement, work motivation, rewarding and measuring energy efficiency. The data used in the empiric part consisted of theme interviews with the case company representatives and written material from the company.
The study was conducted by using theme interviews and informal discussions with the case company representatives. The interviewees consisted of directors, technical professionals and floor level employees i.e. operators. Altogether twenty one people were interviewed. Additionally, the company’s written material, such as scorecards, was used as a study material.

For this reason, the effects of measuring and rewarding energy efficiency on work motivation were experienced as limited. During the interviews, five themes on how to enhance energy efficiency in the case company emerged: shared ownership, employee involvement, concrete training, illustrative measuring and real-time information. As a conclusion of this study, Map to motivation -framework was constructed.
