Making Open Offices More Energy Efficient

Open-plan offices are renowned as being terrible for our productivity and efficiency at work, but they’re also pretty awful in terms of energy efficiency. Lighting is often on for the entire office, regardless of whether it’s actually in use, and even lighting equipped with motion detectors can be far from optimum as it results in lights frequently flickering on and off.

Research from the Eindhoven University of Technology proposes a better approach that could potentially reduce energy consumption by over 25 percent whilst maintaining the usability of the space.
