One of the easiest ways to save money and make your warehouse more energy efficient is by changing your lighting to LED’s. High bay LED lighting can lead to incredible savings of up to 80%, and they provide the perfect light for warehouses. You can read more about high bay lighting here.

In addition, fitting PIR motion sensors is a great idea. It means that your lights will only come on as needed, and will switch off automatically. This greatly reduces the amount of time that lights are left on for, reducing your energy bill. And if you only work in part of the warehouse at a time, you dont have to light the rest of the area, only the areas you need.

Fan systems

Ceiling fans can help to circulate the air within a warehouse, preventing it from stagnating. This will help keep your employees motivated, as well as improving the temperature in the warehouse.


Of course, one of the most obvious ways to promote energy efficiency in warehouses is simply insulation. Choose the right insulation for your warehouse, and make sure it will be installed in useful places, such as the roof. This will prevent your warehouse from losing as much heat, and will reduce your heating bills.
