Make inventories of lab equipment including energy consumption/costs. Perform night audits to identify what equipment is left switched on overnight, and make sure to distribute this information to everyone using the laboratory. Develop inventories of stored chemicals, and implement use-by dates. Register all samples in freezers, with owners and use-by dates noted. Store secondary equipment, such as vacuum pumps that produce a lot of excess heat, in a specially designated room.
