How to Go Green with Energy Efficiency


Energy costs have been rising in the past few years which is not only affecting every household but also businesses of every kind whether it is a small business, a medium business or a top listed millionaire business. Unfortunately, usage of energy consumption to its minimal is not reduced in many countries.



People either at home or in business are not making the minimal energy consumption; instead they tend to use the same for much of their comforts. They are not aware of amount of money they could save on their energy bills by today’s energy efficient technologies and practices. In today’s fast moving world, there are many efficient energy saving products for kitchen, home appliances and other products to improve the efficiency of buildings and industrial facilities. These products might cost a little high but in the later run it is very cost effective.

Best Practices for Saving Energy Globally

Businesses can also put posters or notices inside their premises and work areas with specific energy saving tips for the staff to take simple energy saving measures like:

Let us follow a quick list mentioned below to make our Planet, a place for healthy living:

  1. Switch off lights and fans after use.
  2. Use natural sunlight wherever and whenever possible.
  3. Use energy saving lights in every room.
  4. Switch off other electrical equipments if not in use.
  5. Put stickers on every work station, to switch off PCs if not in use.
  6. Keep a regular check in the electrical appliances so that no extra energy is being consumed, as inefficient office equipment might suck more electricity and also warm up the interior space.
  7. Keep regular check on the electrical bills and units of consumption.

Employees should be trained to follow the above practices in order to not only motivate the employees to save energy in organisations but also it will become a habit for them to follow the same in their homes, which will further help in saving energy and help the government in providing electricity in developing or under developed areas. Glass windows should be coated with heat-blocking films for reducing energy from fans and other cooling equipment used in the offices. Roofs of the office buildings can be painted with roof coats so the sun rays are reflected. Solar panels can be used to light up the buildings nowadays.
