M'illumino di Meno 2017 - SAP and the IT can do something?

M'illumino di Meno (I Use Less Energy) (a title born from italian poesy "M'illumino d'immenso) is a campaign born more than 10 years ago which promote a better use of energy in order to consume less of it.

Each year focus on a way to consume better/less energy and also throws some topic a bit lateral to the main focus (if you read the link, this year the topic is sharing and there are some nice concept of sharing too :) ).

Why i post this in the SAP space?
Well, i think IoT, smart grids, data analyses and so on can help alot into this kind of saving/better use of energy.

And i think everyone here read at least a couple of blogs about, you know, how SAP is smart and useful with IoT, Smart Grids, Data Analyses: if i recall well, SAP got an arrow or two to use in these fields!

And i think this is the true new resource for power we can "easily" access immeditately.

So, what do you think?

Can we as IT/SoftDev/Architects do something?

    One easy thing to do for everyone: don't use any of those disposable plastic coffee cups (like Keurig) and get yourself a decent mug and water bottle to use in the office. Also use "shake, fold, dry" to reduce paper towel consumption (it totally works except for the cheapo paper towels in our office).

    According to our electric company, our house is already super-efficient. They mail us a letter on 2 sheets of paper annually to tell us that and ask if we want to make some improvements (other than switching to candles I don't think it's possible). What would be an improvement is them not sending the letters. So if there is anyone out there working at Duke Energy IT - take notice please. :)

    Also I work from home 3 days a week, which saves tons of gas. But now the company wants to abolish work from home policy and make everyone drive to the office where they would sit the whole day, running the heaters (because it's always freezing in the office), not even talk to anyone and then drive home together with other people who could've just VPNed to work.
