A new survey by energy company E.ON has revealed that SME’s are missing out on energy savings because owners and staff are not taking responsibilty for energy savings at work. A crucial factor appears to be a lack of communication by businesses to their employees.
However, they are now many excellant tools available to encourage owners and staff to make energy savings. An straightforward step would be for owners to use such tools themselves and then encourage their staff to also use them.
The best tool I have seen, by a long margin, is the Carbon Trust’s EmPower. It is straight forward to use and gives instant feedback on the effects of energy savings. What’s more is that the tool is free. The Carbon Trust will also customise the tool for large orgainsations.
