Businesses urged to increase energy efficiency awareness in the workplace
Two leading organizations are urging British businesses to engage more with their employees and raise awareness on the topic of energy efficiency, which is something everyone should pursue both at home and in the office.
The Carbon Trust and Smart Energy GB have teamed up to publish a new guide for businesses that offers support on smart meters and energy efficiency awareness at work and at home.
The resource provides guidance and materials for running an energy efficiency awareness campaign at work, including practical advice to employees on how they can benefit from getting a smart meter and saving energy at home.
Carbon Trust chief executive Tom Delay said: “Good quality measurement is the first step to effective management of energy. Understanding patterns of energy use can help highlight where you can reduce waste and costs, both in the workplace and at home.”
HeatingSave – slash energy bills and cut carbon emissions in a fast and easy way
Replacing your central heating clock with a HeatingSave building management controller is the quickest way of beating those tariff rises and saving on energy costs, often paying for itself in less than a year but almost always in less than 3 years.
HeatingSave can cut your energy usage by 20% to 30% with its energy management control, as its internal microprocessor constantly calculates and improves the efficiency and savings of your central heating system.
Using HeatingSave, simply choose the room temperature and the hot water you want, and when, and HeatingSave does the rest. It works with all central heating systems – oil, gas or coal – and links up with a PC to produce reports and graphs to fashion a powerful and complete energy management system.
The system is backed by the Carbon Trust and the Energy Savings Trust.
