In this part of the website, we suggest ways you could make your workplace more energy efficient. For energy saving advice for your home and for help and advice staying safe and warm this winter, please visit our Extra Care page.
The first step to take to reduce your energy bills is to get to know your energy use. Once you understand this, you can start to reduce the amount of energy you use and make your workplace as energy efficient as possible, making it easier to go further on your net zero journey.
Monitoring and understanding energy use may be as simple as looking at the annual energy usage on your bill or installing a smart meter. You could also take steps to implement additional measurement techniques such as advanced metering to understand more about the specific energy consumption of your workplace. Once you understand your energy use, you can start to manage it.
You can also enlist the help of your employees. An effective employee engagement campaign and training, such as carbon literacy, could change the behaviour of your workforce and further help reduce your energy costs.
