I think it would be difficult to have just one idea that would result in a substantial improvement in energy efficiency. I believe low and zero carbon technologies should be used where possible, with CHP and biomass boilers providing very high efficiencies. Natural ventilation should be used in lieu of air conditioning, good insulation on walls and staff training on everyday measures they can take to reduce energy usage eg switching off lights/computers when not in use.
