Offices of all sizes and layouts need energy to deliver the same basic needs; lighting, heating, office equipment like computers, printers and copiers, and in some cases, air conditioning.

Choosing equipment carefully and looking closely at how it is controlled can make a great difference to energy use, energy costs and carbon emissions. The first step is to realise where the energy you use goes.
