• When you have finished using them, turn off the remote control devices (projector, screen, video player, DVD player, etc.) completely. The standby lights that stay on or flash day and night consume a lot of power. This “passive consumption” unnecessarily increases your electricity bill.
  • Once the devices are charged, unplug the chargers. A charger (GSM for example) or a transformer (for example printer) continues to consume, even if you do not use the device.
  • Place a switch between the plug and the dimmer or unplug it. Many dimmers continue to consume energy even when the lamp is off.
  • During holidays, disconnect all devices. Empty the fridge (s) and turn off the fridge (s).
  • Fill the fridges and limit their number. A shared multi-storey fridge consumes less than a half-full fridge on each floor.
  • Remove the lighting from the drinks dispenser. It is lit day and night, even when it does not dispense drinks.
  • Do not use the coffee maker to keep coffee warm. Pour the coffee into a thermos.
  • Limit the number of electric water heaters if your employees consume little hot water. A natural gas geyser is more economical than a boiler. It heats the water only when you open the hot water faucet.
  • Do not put photos as screen savers on your computer. A photo consumes as much energy as when you use the screen normally. It is best to put the computer into sleep mode.
  • On weekends, switch off the drinks vending machines with a timer. The drinks will not be unnecessarily refreshed during the weekend.
  • Equip the electric kitchen water heater with a timer. It will then turn off automatically outside office hours or cleaning.
  • Place power strips with a switch in easily accessible locations. You will be able to quickly turn off unused devices.
