Our energy use

Information on how much energy the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) use at 1 Victoria Street, London.

You can see our energy use http://www.stark.co.uk/government/bis.aspx

To save more energy, we:

  • are moving all our staff to more more energy-efficient buildings
  • have installed voltage reduction equipment, which regulates temperature and saves us money
  • have core hours for heating and cooling
  • have changed our server room cooling temperatures to be more efficient
  • are removing unnecessary or redundant internal and external lighting
  • have installed timers on lifts and don’t use 6 lifts at the weekend and evenings
  • turn computers and monitors off properly during prolonged absences
  • regularly walk around the building to find energy inefficient behaviour and promote good practice
