Often businesses simply switch to the cheapest tariff or supplier. However, with gas and electricity prices rising year on year, this will only generate a short term gain.

Here are some tips on quick, cost effective changes to help reduce your energy consumption and generate immediate savings.

Offices

  • Turn off photocopiers, printers, desktop computers, mobile phone chargers etc., and don’t use standby modes on electrical equipment. Open blinds to take advantage of natural lighting and switch on lights only when needed. Typically circa 20-30% of energy used in the majority of offices goes solely on lighting!
  • Make sure systems are only operating within your normal working hours.
  • Implement strict temperature policies both Summer and Winter. This will generate up to 15% Energy Savings and create harmony between heating and cooling systems.
  • Appointing “green champions” will encourage behaviour change.
  • Set the temperature in server rooms to a minimum 24oC.

Manufacturers

  • Clean roof lights to reduce the need for artificial lighting. Also consider detectors to automate and control lighting; this will provide potential savings and generate a reduction in CO2 emissions.
  • Check any air compressor units and repair leaks to reduce unnecessary wastage. This offers a very rapid return on investment and by monitoring for leaks, you can continue to reap the energy benefits.
  • If your processes are motor intensive consider variable speed drives to reduce consumption. This reduces waste by ensuring no more energy than necessary is used in these processes.
  • Review machinery start up procedures to decrease “maximum demand”. This gives you more scope to renegotiate your tariff with your energy supplier.

Finally, create an energy management policy to monitor and drive consumption downwards. This should focus on increasing efficiency, reducing consumption and generating a real on-going return on investment. Remember to get this assessed independently.
