Configure your computer to "hibernate". Automatically, after 30 minutes or so of inactivity the "hibernate mode" turns the computer off in a way that doesn't require you to reload everything when you switch it back on.

Allowing your computer to hibernate saves energy and is more time-efficient than shutting down. When you’re finished working for the day, shutdown.

A computer and monitor left on 24 hours a day will cost over £200 a year. Switching it off out of hours and enabling standby features could reduce this cost substantially.

Based on a usage and electricity price of: 12p pkwh and 200 watts per hour.

Making your business more energy efficient - one of the most sufficient ways to achieve this is to invest in a solar energy system or energy efficient lighting, or both.

A solar energy system is the installation of photovoltaic (PV) panels to produce electricity for your business. The panels require little maintenance, they can last for decades and they do not produce any greenhouse gasses.

Benefits of LED Lighting

With ever-increasing energy prices and new tax penalties on CO2 emissions, plus the added burden of high operating costs and meeting safety standards, there’s never been a better time to switch to LED lighting. LED lighting technology is the future of lighting. The light output and efficiency of LED now far exceeds that of both fluorescent and halogen lighting, both of which can be replaced with LED energy saving equivalents. And what’s more, in most cases switching to LED requires only a simple direct lamp replacement, without the need for any additional or special fittings.

90% less power is consumed by LED over halogen, compact-fluorescent or incandescent and further savings can be made when using a dimmer switch

45,000 hour life versus 2,000 for halogen or tungsten

A significant reduction in electricity consumption in-turn greatly reduces CO2 emissions

A reduction from 121°C to 10°C in the output of each individual lamp meaning less heat damage to surrounding décor and a cooler working environment

In most cases, LED Lamps are easy to install and maintenance free

LED lighting emits only a fraction of CO2 generated by halogen. LED is accredited by the Carbon Trust and provides business users with further savings on Carbon Taxes

Business Tips

Promoting energy savings in your business

Make your staff aware of how they can save energy by making a few changes

Place reminders around the office, such as notes by the light switches can be a good way to prompt staff to make a conscious effort to help reduce your energy usage

Remember....

Just one in five (21 per cent) of UK small businesses have energy efficient equipment within the workplace. Astonishingly, this means almost four million small businesses are wasting valuable money and resources where it is not necessary.
