This idea proved a success at Haven Power. We launched a monthly competition to encourage staff to submit energy conservation and cost-saving ideas. The result? 100 tonnes of carbon saved – enough to fill 21 Olympic swimming pools.

2. Understand what you’re paying for

Once you’re aware of your usage, you can identify what you need to do to reduce it. For example, if you notice that your consumption increases over the winter months, look at options such as more efficient heating system or better insulation.

3. Start small

Energy saving in your office doesn’t have to involve anything dramatic (or overly expensive). Here are 5 simple ways you could save thousands each year.

4. Take your energy saving up a notch with an audit

Want to cut energy costs even further? An energy audit - from a desktop analysis you complete yourself to a full review with recommendations by an engineer or other third party - could be the answer.

We provide a number of energy solutions, all designed to help you reduce your consumption and the associated costs.
