As companies across the UK and beyond feel the squeeze brought about by economic insecurity and rising costs, it’s no wonder some turn to business energy efficiency consultants to help gain extra savings where they are possible.

Getting the best business energy deals

As with most businesses, data helps us uncover trends and ultimately energy savings that are available for the business consumer.

Claiming back on energy bills

But it’s not just about getting the best deal, our processes can often mean we find businesses just like yours have been overpaying for many years, and we help then claim back the money that is rightfully theirs. Utility bill validation is a service that most organisations can benefit from, not only saving you the time of scouring bills but making that claim on your behalf too.

Finding energy saving solutions

We identify your energy usage and find the best deal, for sure, but we use technology and data to see exactly which parts of your business use the most, and determine if there is a viable, affordable change your business can implement that may cost a little now, but will reap the financial benefits further down the line, month on month.

Simple things like using systems that only turn lighting on when and where it is needed have helped large organisations save thousands and thousands. These systems may not be right for your business, but our experience and wealth of data about companies similar to yours, plus your own data will guide us to the best solutions for you, no matter what industry sector you are in, or what type of building you work from.

Meeting energy targets

Often larger organisations will need to meet legislative targets such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), and outsourcing the help required to make companies compliant is often far more economical than hiring and training staff, or even not meeting those targets and facing financial penalties of up to £90,000.

With ESOS phase 2 deadline being December 2019, now really is the time to start thinking about your options if you are a larger organisation with more than 250 employees, a turnover of more than 50,000,000 euros and an annual balance sheet of more than 43,000,000 euros.

Of course, ESOS is one of many, and we pride ourselves on staying ahead of new Governmental initiatives, and relaying our knowledge to our clients both quickly and effectively, in a way that is easily understood.

Energy Accreditations

Gaining awards and accreditations help your prospective clients, stakeholders and employees understand a little more about your business and it’s morals, ethics and best practices, and we can help you gain energy accreditations that say you care about the environment and the world we live in. From ISO50001 and ISO14001, to carbon footprinting and climate change agreements, Energy Management can help.

We all know Winter is the time our heat and light sources go on and our energy bills go up, but this doesn’t have to be the case! There are many ways to stay warm and keep your staff happy whilst also saving money for the most expensive month of the year (the dreaded Christmas expenditure). Our Energy Saving Consultants are here to offer you their top tips on energy saving to keep your staff AND your business as happy and healthy as possible. Saving energy not only allows you to save money, but it also makes you more competitive as a company and also cuts your carbon emissions which is the first step to saving the environment. There are simple ways to do this and you won’t even notice anything has changed.

  • IT equipment such as computers and printers burn a lot of energy. Most people believe putting them on standby stops them using up energy, that is where they are wrong. You should encourage your staff to turn their computers, printers, photocopiers off when they are not using them and especially make sure they are turned off when no one is there and at weekends and bank holidays. You could also suggest using the energy saving features on computers and laptops whilst in use. It is estimated that you could save £35 per desk a year by doing all of this.
  • Lighting is usually a large part of an electricity bill and it certainly doesn’t need to me. Many offices have their lights on when they can see just as easily with the natural light coming through the window. You also should encourage staff to switch a light off when it’s not needed and when they are leaving a room that will then be empty. Another good method of saving energy with lighting is by using energy saving light bulbs or motion sensors which turn on when they detect movement.

  • Heating and air conditioning systems are sometimes turned on when they don’t need to be. Also, you wouldn’t believe the amount of companies that actually have their heating systems and air conditioning on and running at the same time, which then cancel each other out, think of the energy that is wasting! So try and encourage your workers to bring an extra jumper to put on and only turn the heating on when it is really needed.

  • Another simple tip to help you on your way to making your workplace energy efficient is by simply creating a tea and coffee rota. Instead of boiling the kettle separate times, take it in turns to go and make a drink for one another, that way you don’t boil the kettle as often and don’t waste as much energy.

  • An extremely important tip that can be done by every company, is to create an energy saving plan. Within this you could incorporate all of the points spoken about previously and also compare your meter readings at the beginning and end of the week and also compare to a week before you created this plan. You can agree on actions and set targets for your company to meet. To add even more incentive for your staff to cooperate, you could even reward success.

These are just a few suggestions from our energy saving consultants to help you save energy, money and help our environment. To make this even easier for you, you could employ an energy consultant to do this work for you and create reports on the latest  knowledge in the energy industry and tailor these to your individual needs as a company. For more information on our Energy Saving Consultants and how we can assist your business, contact us or visit our website. You can also contact us if you need some more advice and information on how to make your business energy efficient.

We may not realise it, but as the days go on, the air we breathe in and the water we drink becomes more and more contaminated. The energy we are using day to day is increasing the amount of greenhouse gases and other forms or air pollution that is emitted, this also affects our water and land around us.

Also, as Winter is upon us, we all automatically use much more energy compared to the rest of the year, we turn up the heating and use more lighting in the dark mornings and evenings. This is why using an energy consultancy will greatly benefit your business as well as the environment and society around us without us even realising!

Why does my business need an Energy Consultancy?.. I hear you ask…

There are many benefits of using an Energy Consultancy, here are a few:

  • You will be saving money - unnecessary energy spend is usually a very big part of a business’ budget and therefore if you get the option to lower that spend, why not take it? An Energy Consultancy can help allocate and adjust your resources and usages where you need them the most and save money on the energy you are using that you don’t need to be.
  • Can access and monitor the regularly adjusting energy markets - hiring an in-house energy manager will probably mean that their day to day duties and responsibilities will go beyond focusing solely on energy consumption and they will take on other jobs that need doing. Using an energy consultant means their primary job is to help look for ways to use your energy efficiently and that means they will be able to watch the markets full time and make reports on what they have noticed whenever they want. Another benefit of using an energy consultant rather than an in-house energy manager, is that they won’t need to be added to your business payroll.

  • You will be receiving independent advice - the advice you get given from an energy consultant will be tailored to your particular business, and after getting to know your company and what it does, an energy consultant can work out the best way to use energy most efficiently without given any biased advice. Also, with professional reporting and reviews, an energy consultant can identify patterns through your use of energy and highlight when the peaks occur to be able to take a closer look into the energy demands of the business.

Not only does investing in an Energy Consultancy benefit your business, but as mentioned previously, it also hugely benefits the environment and as a result, our health. So while you're saving yourself money, you can also feel pride in the sense that you are having a positive impact in the future of our society. Using an energy consultancy contributes to benefits in our public health as increasing energy consumption leads to pollutions, which, over time, causes our health to decline. Contaminated soil destroys habitats and also overpopulation is causing more developments being built on our land and also more carbon dioxide to be released into the air, which goes back to the issue of pollution and the health risks. Keeping a close eye on your energy consumption and using an energy consultancy to assist you in doing this can have a long-term effect on our environment and the people around us.

We hear about the mass of pollution in Southeast Asia, in countries like China and Japan, to the point where normal citizens have to wear masks in their day to day lives in an attempt to avoid potential health risks from the amount of contamination in the air. We all can have a say in stopping unnecessary energy pollution and its negative effects before it’s too late and we too have to wear a mask for a trip to the shop or whilst on our way to work.

For more information on our Energy Consultancy services and how to increase your energy efficiency rating, feel free to contact us on 01225 867722 or complete our form for a free consultation to reduce your energy costs. We look forward to hearing from you.

Energy Management Legislation and Compliance

posted on

Our environment remains very paramount to our coexistence, for better and healthy living. There are reports of drastic climate change and weather patterns due to the emissions released into the environment as a result of increasing energy consumption. It’s important for all stakeholders to be concerned of the well being of the environment. In this respect, various stakeholders have come up with measures to regulate emissions and energy consumption. Various governments, NGOs, regulators, and other parties have come together to develop climate change agreements and other regulations. These are ideas meant to reduce our energy consumption and protect our environment from pollution. The carbon reduction commitment (CRC) is part of the energy efficiency scheme in the United Kingdom with aim to reduce carbon emissions in the environment. ESOS is another energy efficiency systems requiring companies to undertake audit of their energy consumption.

However, many businesses and personnel are opposed to these legislation and regulations, citing cost and other challenges that make the implementation difficult. Nevertheless, there are many advantages associated with the compliance as opposed to their rejections. This is because the regulations and legislation are not only beneficial to the business but the environment and other stakeholders. Moreover, though the initial costs may be higher on the part of the business, future costs will greatly be reduced. Costs associated with legal litigations will be reduced. If you have any issue regarding the management and compliance, consider seeking energy management legislation and compliance.

We are professionals dedicated to ensure that businesses find the necessary help they need in energy efficiency systems and other issues. The company offers its expertise in a range of services ranging from management to advice.

Go Greener With Business Energy Consultants

posted on

So far in our lives, we have seen a large range of advances throughout the world, whether that be technological, scientific, medical or other. However, the state of our environment is worsening with many concerning issues arising. The way we treat the environment and the amount of unnecessary energy we use within our businesses is causing more harm than we expect and with quite worrying outcomes all over the world. Some concerning environmental issues we are noticeably seeing changes in are:

  • Public Health - the amount of polluted air and water surrounding us is constantly increasing and this plays a significant role in our health, this pollution is causing our health and wellness to decline. Another issue causing pollution is the limited amount of natural land and developments being built in any spot of undeveloped land around. With more houses and a higher population, more gasses are being released into the air creating more pollution and poorer health.

  • Waste Disposal - rubbish and waste disposal usually ends up in either landfills or environmental habitats like the ocean. Both of these destinations can cause harm to the environment whether that is through the harm it can cause to living creatures in the sea or through the hazardous toxins that are released if it is burnt.

  • Overpopulation - this is causing more carbon dioxide to be released into the air and also it comes with the cost of climate change and more greenhouse gasses surrounding us. Renewable energy sources and sustainable energy can assist in the reduction of carbon emissions, also keeping a close eye on the amount the energy you are using compared to the energy you actually need can help monitor what we emit into the environment.

  • Pollution -  Air, water and soil are all capable of becoming polluted. Contaminated water is undrinkable, contaminated air causes health issues as stated previously and also weakens the ozone layer whilst contaminated soil destroys habitats and irrigation. This majorly affects us as humans but if we take more care of the ecosystem and make sustainable choices we could recover from pollution.

These are just some of the issues caused by the environmental change we are seeing. However, we can all make a difference in a simple way. Business Energy Consultants can help you monitor what energy you need to be using and create reports to help you save the environment whilst saving money! As business energy consultants, we can also take into consideration your historical energy data and can help estimate your budgets taking into account consumption and future rates. We will offer a small team dedicated to your business and create a plan around your wants and needs as well as a strategy that is independent to you.

Perhaps we should start by filling you in on what an energy consultant does before we give you some suggestions as to how they can help your business. An energy consultant is a person with extensive knowledge of the energy industry who is able to combine this with their analysis skills to form and execute a plan that will provide sustainable results for a business. The energy industry is well-established but continues to evolve at a rapid rate. It is also very unpredictable which is why careful energy planning is necessary. Of course you can make plans yourself but why risk making a bad decision and costing your business money.

Experienced energy consultants can help in the following ways:

Save you time and money – while you may be responsible for making your energy decisions do you have the time and the knowledge to choose wisely? Bring in the experts and avail yourself of their support. Using their services in areas where you are less knowledgeable is going to save you time and money.

Managing workloads – an energy consultant can help you even out the ups and downs of running a successful business and adapt more effectively to its needs.

Drive your business growth – an energy consultant is able to work across the entire business and provide tailor-made solutions that will drive your business growth.

Gain knowledge – if you need help to identify the best way to reshape your business operations and make them more profitable an energy consultant is the expert to call. They will use their industry experience and in-depth analysis skills to save you money.
