After too long a delay, here is the Informatics Energy Report on what I’ve discovered about energy use in the Forum and what other willing colleauges have been doing to help reduce it. The executive summary is that since April energy use has been is down by around 15% on the corresponding month in 2011. Some of this is due to improving the control of ventilation in the Forum and some is due to reductions in desktop computer and office appliance use.
I’m very aware that there is more to do – not least the lights permanently on in the kitchen areas. Hopefully there will be progress to report on this and other areas before too long.
