Please keep in mind that these energy saving ideas are only some of the options available to business owners. There are many ways to become more energy efficient in your business. Each section gives tips on removing non-useful energy consumption and energy efficiency upgrades.

Removing Non-Useful Energy Consumption

Reducing unnecessary energy use is the first step in energy management, in any sector (residential, commercial, industrial). This is energy that is not being used productively. Once this is addressed, the business owner can then move on to improving efficiencies and investigating the potential for alternative sources of energy.

Energy Efficiency Upgrades

Once the non-useful energy consumption has been addressed, business owners may want to investigate the potential for energy savings through efficiency improvements. These tips include upgrades to existing equipment as well as replacing existing systems.
