Encourage more flexible working

During the day you’ll find that quite a lot of your energy usage comes from telephone chargers plugged in, unused electronic equipment, heating & air conditioning. Make sure the computers, telephones and other devices aren’t draining too much unnecessary power.

Furthermore, create a green plan. Start by encouraging your employees to cutback on the electricity, whilst maintaining productivity. Moreover you could even consider incorporating a flex-work scheme, allowing your remote working photo office energy saving tipspeople the freedom to negotiate their own remote hours.

In addition, as summer is arriving incorporate a cycle to work scheme. Not only are there environmental benefits, but employees get tax benefits and they are able to keep fit throughout the week.

Did you know that employees can complete 13.5% more tasks in the freedom of remote working? (Harvard Business Review, 2014). The study completed in the USA discovered that $1,900 (approx £1,500) was saved on furniture and space. This emphasises how flexible and remote working provides an opportunity to save on general expenses and still maintaining higher productivity.

Outsource a management consultant

Another great way to save energy is to arrange an energy audit with a consultant. They’ll give you a clear and concise insight not only into how much you spend. But, how much you could save on office energy & which contract suits you.

With Crown Gas & Power, we allow our customers to monitor their gas account online. Therefore, each customer would be able to benefit from monthly consumption charts and daily AMR & Smart data.

Maintain / Replace old equipment
