What can I do?
There's a range of approaches you can take to increase energy efficiency and reduce your bills. Here are just a few simple but effective measures.
Ways to save energy:
Turn off heating and non-essential equipment overnight, from the photocopier to the coffee machine. Or invest in time switches to turn things off at the end of the day.
Use the energy saving features of your IT equipment.
Insulate your cavity walls. Also insulate your hot water boiler and lag your pipes to save energy and prevent burst pipes in cold weather.
Use draft excluders and make sure outside doors can close automatically.
Install efficient fluorescent light fittings with movement sensors and daylight detectors to make sure lights are only on when needed.
Invest in the most energy efficient equipment. Older appliances waste far more energy than newer models.
Choose a company 'green team' who are responsible for putting energy efficiency measures and staff-awareness campaigns into practice.
