Play your part

Staff and students can all contribute to saving energy, even in the smallest way.
Here are a few tips:

Make sure electronic appliances such as fridges, computers and printers meet energy-efficiency requirements (AAA ratings).
When not in use, unplug your laptop, printer, scanner and other similar appliances.
When not in use, turn off the wireless capacity and Bluetooth on your mobile phone or computer to save battery life. Wireless appliances use more energy as they constantly search for connections.
Use a kettle only when necessary.
Remove your power adapter (e.g. mobile phone charger) from the wall socket when not in use. It still consumes energy when plugged in.
Turn off the lights when you leave a room.
If possible, make use of natural daylight and don't switch on lights unnecessarily.
Climb stairs instead of using an elevator.
Use less hot water when you shower or wash.
Dress warmly instead of using a heater.
