Beat The Weather – Energy Management
BEAT THE COLD SPELL, KEEP EMPLOYEES WARM & SAVE MONEY
The cold weather is back with a vengeance. And despite tomorrow officially being the first day of spring, the cold spell and snow covering the country makes this a little harder to believe.
Instead of opening windows to allow in the spring air and looking at daffodils outside, the heating is still on full and employees refuse to take their jackets off until first break.
But as we learn to manage energy at home, how can we do it effectively in the workplace?
WORKPLACE ENERGY MANAGEMENT
Some might say that it is easy to manage energy whilst you are at home. You can turn off lights when you exit a room, turn off plugs when you are no longer using an appliance or even monitor how many hours your central heating is on for.
Unfortunately things are a little harder in the workplace…
However, it doesn’t matter whether you work in a office or outside – you will still be using a significant amount of energy every day. All of which you could be saving a fortune on.
WHAT IS ENERGY MANAGEMENT?
There are different meanings for Energy Management, however we are most concerned with the one that relates to saving energy and saving money.
In brief, energy management is the use of modern techniques and technology in order to enhance the energy performance in your workplace. In order for the process to be effective, it needs to be taken seriously and implemented across the whole of your organisation.
Whilst energy prices continue to hike and businesses across the UK are continuing to pay too much for their energy, energy management is still being neglected.
However, by implementing such a scheme, you could save energy and improve your bottom line in the process.
A CLEAR STRATEGY
First things first. The best way to start managing your energy effectively is to create a clear strategy.
This plan should define exactly how your business energy management system will be approached and will include a list of dedicated tasks.
As these tasks are outlined, your energy strategy will evolve as you implement the various energy saving projects that are going to save you money.
A good energy strategy could include the following:
- Procurement of equipment, services and property
- Compliance with climate change and energy regulations
- Organisation of roles and responsibilities of employees
- When investing in new projects, cost effective energy efficiency should be taken into account
