The most important factor is heating: the primary way to save energy is to lower the room temperature.
“The rule of thumb is: even one degree less results in a 6 per cent saving,” explains Dr. Robert Grosche, Head of Building and Facilities Management at RUB. “This means: if we lower the room temperature from 21 to 19 degrees, we would already save 12 per cent. We can achieve another 8 per cent through a large number of small-scale measures and through centralised measures.”
