With all the lighting, air conditioning and computer equipment to run, office buildings can be electricity-draining powerhouses that require a large portion of budget just to run. Here at The Energy Desk we’re passionate about helping companies reduce their electricity usage to minimise their environmental impact and energy costs. We’ve put together some steps to help offices reduce their electricity consumption which you can see below:
Steps to Reduce Electricity Usage in Offices
- Simple things first: make sure lighting and equipment is turned off when it isn’t required.
- Install LED lighting and motion-sensor lighting in corridors and other public areas.
- Consider voltage optimisation to ensure your appliances and equipment are not using more electricity than is required.
- Install solar panels to subsidise your electricity usage, reduce costs from suppliers and benefit from government renewable-energy incentive schemes.
- Consider a CHP (Combined Heat and Power) system to provide your electricity and gas requirements.
- Conduct regular energy audits to identify areas of improvement and where further energy savings could be achieved.
