Office Energy Efficiency Tea Round An age old tradition in the majority offices. But how many times do you really need to boil the kettle? It’s cheaper to boil one kettle with enough water for 5 people than it is for 5 individual boils. It’s a great way to gain favour within your team too if you offer them a hot beverage on a difficult day! Energy efficiency, teamwork and cups of tea (coffee if you’re busy) - you can’t ask for much more than that. Turn The Lights Off! Yes, we know it’s been said before. In fact, we’re probably the ones who have told you before. It’s the oldest trick in the book when it comes to office energy efficiency and it’s just so darn effective. Lighting is one of the biggest consumers of energy in an office and needs to be addressed wherever possible! It’s as simple as ensuring that when there is no-one in a room, or when there is plenty of natural light coming in, you don’t have all of the lights on unnecessarily.

We will be working to help our members understand what resources are available to them as a result of this legislation and how they can use those resources to help get through this difficult time.”
