How To Save Energy in Public Services

How the Spanish Ministry of Justice Saved More Than €1.5M in One Year

Save money by investing in public services

Public administrations have a huge energy savings potential. They consume hundreds of kWh across geographically dispersed locations. They can see quick results if they put in place energy efficiency plans, like the Spanish Ministry of Justice did: 

  • Centralise energy providers to negotiate better pricing
  • Optimise power use
  • Analyse peaks and monitor what happens in each location

Nowadays, saving energy is not only important for your finances, but you also have an ethical obligation. While service to citizens must be maintained, many public services are under pressure to cut costs. Energy is normally the third highest cost in an organisation. 

Don't compromise on services to citizens: save energy and stay productive in an efficient and comfortable environment for public servants.

“We are very satisfied with the support with which the CIAS COM consultant provides us to control and optimise the management of the general service contracts in the almost 300 judicial buildings which make up the Regional Offices of the Ministry of Justice, which has enabled us significant cost savings and improved the quality of the services of facility maintenance, energy supplies, cleaning buildings, elevators, security and surveillance, and others.”

FAQs of Energy Savings Plans in Public Administration

What's in it for me?

If saving 22% on your energy is not enough for you, think about other potential issues, like regulation, that might affect you. Think that if you save money on energy, you can spend those savings on giving a better services to citizens. 

How much shall I invest?

We say that there's a common sense rule, the 10% investment. It states that you will need to invest 10% of your total energy costs, or your total energy bills, in one month. That will be the cost of implementing your energy efficiency plan. 

When will I see the ROI?

Most of the energy efficiency projects in Public Administration see results right after the metering phase of the project and in the application of initial measures to correct problematic behaviours.

 

I don't have a energy expert

 Don't worry! Like the example of Spanish Ministry of Justice you can work with external experts. Select an Energy Services Company (ESCO) close to you and start your savings plan! 

Will my services be affected?

Not at all! Quite the opposite: your citizens will benefit with your energy management program. You will have a more sustainable public office and, in addition, you can apply the savings generated in better services!

How much will I save?

Well, we haven't met so it's difficult to give you an accurate figure ;) But you can perform a free energy audit with our Energy Grader.
