10 ways to save energy while working from home

  1. If you would normally walk around in the office try get out for a walk before work, at lunch or after work to keep your body temperature up throughout the day.
  2. Optimise natural light – make sure your work space/home office is getting the best natural light possible.
  3. Make sure you have energy efficient lighting.
  4. Try keeping you hot drinks in a travel mug with a lid (it keeps them warmer for longer).
  5. Ask your energy supplier for a smart meter if you don’t already have one. It will help you keep track of high energy activities.
  6. Try batch cooking and meal prepping to keep energy requirements down and it also saves time on your lunch break.
