Reducing Costs – Waste, Water, Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012

KEY PRINCIPLES
Understand your bills  Understand your equipment  Monitor your consumption  Have a Plan  Train your staff (and yourself if needed)

Reducing Costs – Waste, Water, Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012

kVa. surcharges. excesses – do you have any? Why?  Oil. kWh. Tuos. Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 .!Gas!  Electricity – very difficult – no explanations on websites – very poor service Reducing Costs – Waste.UNDERSTANDING BILLS  Do you ?  Ltr. Water. Mains/Natural Gas – ok . MDLV. M³.  Cost vs Consumption – what do you control?  Penalties. MIC. LPG. Duos…..

Water.UNDERSTAND BILLS  All  Energy Average Unit Price –– Divide total bill (net of VAT) by total units (Day+Night) = AUP – then compare with similar size business Actual or Estimated – make sure you notify monthly Can you access on-line meter readings – examine consumption – especially when closed    Get supplier to explain your bill to you – in detail and the elements you can manage Reducing Costs – Waste. Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 .

Water.UNDERSTAND YOUR EQUIPMENT  Who controls your equipment?  You. your staff or “Its always been that way” Create a list of all energy using equipment  Decide when they will be on/off  Train your staff  Enforce it  Give feedback  Reducing Costs – Waste. Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 .

UNDERSTAND YOUR LIGHTING  Who controls your lighting?  You. your staff or “Its always been that way” Create a list of all the bulbs in use – front/back  Decide when they will be on/off  Train your staff  Enforce it  Give feedback  Reducing Costs – Waste.

Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 .MONITOR CONSUMPTION  You cannot Manage if you don’t Measure What do you currently measure ? Energy ? Waste ? Water ? Minimum Monthly. Water. better weekly – better on-line What about sub-metering – 20%     Reducing Costs – Waste.

MONITOR CONSUMPTION Waste . Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 . Water.What happened in December Water -What happened here? possibly a leak Reducing Costs – Waste.

Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 .HAVE A PLAN Don‟t leave it to chance  One off campaigns lose their effectiveness  If it‟s not written down. Water. it won‟t happen  Keep it simple – keep it short – make sure its attainable  Resource it – time is the key resource  Focus on no/low cost   EMS Principles – SEAI EnergyMap Reducing Costs – Waste.

TRAIN YOUR STAFF How can they deliver if you don‟t show/tell them?  Include Energy. Water. water into regular training sessions  Provide information/feedback to show how they effect performance/costs  Link work with home  Reducing Costs – Waste. Energy – BeGreen Workshops 2012 . waste.
