energy efficiency redesign
quote of the day, from an engineer I met at an energy efficiency seminar on Friday; he was talking about getting office workers to switch off the power mains to their laptops, so the devices don’t drain passive ‘vampire power’.
“If you want to get people to switch off their computers, you have to design power points to make it easy for people to switch them off. Where are the power points in your office? They’re hidden away, out of sight. If you want to shut them off you have to dive under your desk and bang your head on the way back up.”
what’s a good nudge for power mains? maybe something like this?
