The Department of Energy does not effectively promote or use shared office space and telecommuting to save operating costs, energy, resources, and impact to environment. By improving the frequency of telecommuting for employees, there would be less office spaces needed and setup designated shared offices to match schedules when employees need to attend the main office. This would work at the Department of Energy’s - Environmental Management Consolidated Business Center (EMCBC) located in downtown Cincinnati OH that uses leased office space to decrease the lease cost.
