Charity Golf Day proves a big hit

posted on

Energy Management rubbed shoulders with stars of the golfing world and former top-level rugby players on Thursday to help raise money for the Dorothy House Hospice.

A team of four competed in a Charity Golf Day, organised by Marble Works of Bath and hosted by BT Rugby frontman David Flatman, at the highly-acclaimed Cumberwell Park Golf Club just outside Bradford-on-Avon.

Open Championship golfer Laurie Canter was present to lend his support just a few weeks after competing at Royal Birkdale and he was joined by European tour pro, Jordan Smith, plus former British & Irish Lions rugby stars, Jeremy Guscott, Jason Leonard and Mike Catt and Craig Chalmers.

While a stiff breeze and grey skies made for tricky playing conditions, the event was a big success with thousands of pounds raised for Dorothy House.


The event was won by Bath Rugby legend Guscott and his team, while Energy Management finished a creditable sixth.

energy management fund sally narrowboatsSteve Retford from Energy Management LLP is proud to announce that popular holiday boat hire company Sally Narrowboats has renewed its contract with the Wiltshire-based company after achieving savings of over 10 per cent on its energy usage in the last 12 months.

As well as powering a 26-strong fleet, Sally Narrowboats offer a full repair and maintenance service for passing traffic on the Kennet & Avon Canal at its dry dock facility in the picturesque Bradford-on-Avon Marina.

Sally Narrowboats General Manager Mark Fraser says seeking external help in energy management has brought about noticeable benefits to the company, and not just financial.

“Thanks to the energy efficiency measures put in place by Energy Management, we have reduced our energy usage by 10.3 per cent over the last year.

“Energy Management assisted us with some upgrade works in our office space and in the workshop and warehouse as well as helping us negotiate the best possible deals with energy suppliers.

“Originally, we had standard light bulbs installed in high-level fittings that constantly needed changing and were troublesome to get to because of their location. We’ve since had LED lights fitted, which have a five-year lifespan, and less time is now spent on maintenance.”

Energy usage can amount to a third of a company’s overall bills, yet, in the experience of Energy Management CEO Retford, an engineer with over 25 years of industry experience, there are obvious areas where savings are achievable.

For example, as many as one in five invoices seen by Energy Management over the last two decades have been found to be inaccurate. These errors typically can result in an increase of 3-5 per cent of business energy bills.

“Invoice validation is one of our core services. Whether it’s down to inaccurate meter readings, wrongly applied correction and volume factors or CCL and VAT charges, customers often pay more than they should for their energy,” said Retford.

“Our invoice validation service uses a thorough invoice-checking system that shines a light on any errors, so that action can be taken to recover any overcharges as quickly as possible.”

Four members of the Energy Management team took to the stage at

the Lords Mercure Rougemont Hotel on Wednesday night after beating off stiff competition to win a commendation in the Energy Consultancy of the Year category.

The panel of judges recognised the work that Energy Management do in reducing clients’ energy costs and usage through their over-arching service which includes procurement, energy efficiency reporting and invoice validation.

The company’s commitment to the local community through its apprenticeship and graduate schemes and sponsorship of local rugby club, Avonvale RFC, also made a favourable impression on a night when leading energy experts throughout the region came together to share ideas and success stories.

Energy Management LLP CEO, Steve Retford, said: “We’re delighted that the role we play within the energy industry has been recognised in this way. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a team with more experience and knowledge in this field; clients know they are in safe hands with us.

“Energy usage can amount to as much of a third of a company’s overall costs so it is sensible that they explore any areas in which they can reduce their power bills – and their own time. We help company’s plot a path through the minefield of different tariffs and regulatory red tape in a truly independent manner.”

Energy efficiency is more important and high-profile than ever for businesses, especially those under financial pressure because energy bills can amount to as much as a third of total overheads. Over the last 12 months Energy Management LLP has helped save nearly 100 customers time, money and hassle through its complete energy management service, which includes energy procurement, energy efficiency reporting and invoice validation.

As well as acknowledging the significant savings brought about by Energy Management’s highly-skilled team, the panel of judges were clearly impressed by the Wiltshire-based company’s values. A client retention rate of nearly 100 per cent speaks volumes for the trustworthy way in which Energy Management LLP has gone about its business since the turn of the Millennium.

Energy Management will be in the running for three awards - Energy Consultant of the Year, Efficiency Champion of the Year and Vulnerable Customer Support Champion of the Year - when energy companies from around the region gather at the fourth South West Energy Efficiency Awards at the Lords Mercure Rougemont Hotel, Exeter on June 7th.

Energy Management LLP CEO, Steve Retford, said: “We’re delighted to be short-listed for these awards at such a prestigious event. With such a strong engineering background, our team understands the pressures that companies are coming under both financially and regulatory and it is wonderful that the role we play in alleviating this burden has been recognised.”

Energy Management LLP are pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Retford B.Eng. (Honours) as Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect.Steve Retford CEO

Mr Retford, aged 45, replaces Energy Management founder, Gary Weston, in the day-to-day running of the company's affairs. 

Based in Bradford-on-Avon, Energy Management is a leading business energy consultancy firm that offers advice to finance, facilities and procurement managers about the often complex and volatile energy market, identifying areas where savings can be made.

"On average, energy usage accounts for a third of a company's overall costs, and for high-energy users it is their main outgoing," said Retford.

"The expertise and experience within the Energy Management team enables us to procure energy for customers at the best possible price.

"We also validate bills to identify any anomalies and spikes within their energy usage. Some people may find it hard to believe but, in our experience, one in five energy invoices are wrong.

"Anything that can be done to help our customers save time and money, we do."

A resident of Bath and the surrounding district for over three decades, Retford brings with him a wealth of experience at the top level.

Previous to his appointment at Energy Management, the father-of-four worked as a consultant for Wessex, Thames and Anglian Water on a number of prestigious projects.

With water supply to businesses throughout England recently opened up to competition in a similar way to the energy market, this has been identified as an area that Energy Management  can tap into.

"The expertise we have developed in energy procurement can easily be translated to water procurement, and we hope to be at the vanguard of this exciting new development," said Retford.
