  • Ways to Engage Occupants in Energy Efficiency

13
Why Engage Tenants?
  • Like all aspects of building performance, energy
    efficiency is a team effort.
  • Small changes make a big impact.
  • Gets them invested in the process
  • Bring new and innovative ideas

14
Bring Your Green to Work
  • www.energystar.gov/work
  • Initiative launched to help occupants make many
    of the same green choices at work as they already
    make at home.

Programmable thermostat ENERGY STAR qualified
programmable thermostats can automatically adjust
your buildings temperature settings so energy is
not wasted to cool or warm air when the building
is empty.
Blinds During cold weather, take advantage of
the suns warmth by keeping blinds open during
daylight hours. To keep out the heat of the
summer sun, close blinds in warm weather.
Vent Make sure window vents are clear of papers
and other items so the air can circulate freely.
Monitor/computer Look for the ENERGY STAR and
enable power management settings on your work
computer and monitor so they automatically enter
a low-power mode when not in use.

Challenge poster Take the ENERGY STAR
Challenge, a national call-to-action to improve
the energy efficiency of Americas commercial and
industrial buildings. Encourage your employer and
co-workers to do the same! You can also order
free brochures and posters for your office or for
employee fairs and Earth Day activities at
energystar.gov/publications.
Multifunction device (printer/copier/scanner)
An ENERGY STAR qualified multifunction device
that combines several capabilities (print, scan,
copy) can save energy and space. Make sure power
management features are enabled for additional
savings.
Cell phone Unplug battery chargers or power
adapters when equipment is fully charged or
disconnected from the charger. On average, ENERGY
STAR qualified battery chargers and adapters use
30-35 less energy than conventional models.

Water cooler Did you know EPA qualifies water
coolers? On average, ENERGY STAR models require
about half as much energy as standard units.
Encourage your employer to look for one that has
earned the ENERGY STAR.
Desk lamp Replace the bulbs in desk lamps with
ENERGY STAR qualified compact fluorescent light
bulbs (CFLs). These light bulbs use about 75
less energy than incandescent bulbs and last up
to 10 times longer! ENERGY STAR qualified lamps
and light fixtures are also available for even
more energy savings.

You You can make a difference by getting
involved! Create a Green Team with your
co-workers to help save energy and reduce office
waste. Set a goal to make your building one of
the most energy efficient in the nation and earn
EPAs ENERGY STAR.
Power strip Even when turned off, electronic
and IT equipment often use a small amount of
electricity when plugged in. Use a power strip as
a central turn off point when you are done
using office equipment to completely disconnect
the power supply.
Light switch Remember to turn off your lights
when leaving conference rooms and your work
space, especially at the end of the day.

22
Tips for Saving Energy at Work
  • Use the ENERGY STAR power management settings on
    your computer and a power strip as a central
    turn off point.
  • Unplug electronics once they are charged.
  • Replace the light bulb in your desk lamp with an
    ENERGY STAR qualified bulb, and turn off lights
    when you leave.
  • Keep air vents clear of paper, files, and office
    supplies.
  • Create a Green Team with your co-workers.

22
23
Tips for Saving Energy at Home
  • Replace your five most frequently used light
    fixtures or the bulbs in them with ENERGY STAR
    qualified lights.
  • Use a programmable thermostat.
  • Look for the ENERGY STAR when buying home
    appliances, electronics, and heating and cooling
    systems.
  • Find and seal air leaks to the outside.
  • Take the ENERGY STAR pledge.

23
24
Create a Green Team
  • What is a Green Team?
  • A group of people from across the organization
    who want to create a greener workplace.
  • Why a Green Team?
  • A team approach helps build momentum for positive
    change and improves buy-in from all levels of the
    organization.
  • Empowers staff to address energy efficiency
    issues directly.

25
How to Create a Green Team
  • Use the Green Team Checklist for tips on setting
    up a team and activities.
  • Step 1 Get organized, recruit team members, and
    hold a kick-off meeting.
