This report from the U.S. Department of Energy outlines methods for reducing energy consumed in buildings by plug and process loads (PPLs) in office buildings.  These are tenant devices not related to the building operation or environmental control.  Occupants are advised to measure PPLs to determine usage.  The employee needs for a variety of devices and for operation during non-business hours in standby modes should be reduced.  Intelligent power control is recommended.
