We are here to share the best ways to conserve energy in the office!
It is no secret that soaring energy bills have impacted businesses and households all over the country. Although many companies are enjoying having their teams back in the office, it also means that there is more energy is being expended.
That's why Big Energy Saving Week has come at the perfect time.
Energy Saving Week looks to aid and encourage everyone to save energy and lower their expenses. We are here to share the best ways to conserve energy in the office so you can decrease your gas bill and install energy-saving practices. These also help benefit the environment, so it’s a win-win all around.
National Energy Saving Week runs from the 17th-23rd January in the UK. The aim of this week is to bring awareness to energy-lowering tactics that can help people - especially during the current cost of living crisis. Many households and businesses in the UK face immense gas and electricity bills. So, this week is about learning how to reduce these as much as possible and create a more efficient office.
The average small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) could reduce energy bills by 18-25% by installing energy efficiency measures and implementing behavioural change. It is worth investigating areas such as heating, lighting, equipment, and draughts.
The question is on every employer’s mind right now. How can you save energy in the office? The Energy Saving Trust offers some great tips, and we have broken these down for you, so you can start your energy-saving practice this week.
- Draughts are a massive cause of energy wastage. Make sure that doors and windows are sealed and not left open. Heating costs can be lowered just by stopping cold air from getting in and warm air from escaping.
- Either hire an external company or create your own energy audit and focus on these areas. See which areas you can improve and which are costing you the most money.
