Facing a winter of scarce energy the public sector could help us out by cutting its own substantial demands. This would save us money as taxpayers and leave more the available energy available for the homes that most need it and to keep business working without rationing.
Councils could review their street lighting and switch it off at times and in places where few people are out and about to need it.
All government offices could ensure through controls or caretakers that all electrical appliances are switched off early evening to avoid evening and night power waste.
Government officials could keep in touch with overseas governments more by on line meetings, to curb the number of jet flights needed.
Temperature and time controls on heating and cooling systems in buildings should be adjusted down where possible
More insulation should be included in public sector buildings.
Lights should be turned off when people leave offices for the evening.
