The cheapest kWh of energy is the one you don’t use.
Using less energy and eliminating waste is now not the preserve of businesses that wish to show environmentally friendly credentials, it is an essential part of keeping your businesses profitable and in some cases, viable. We have published a number of DIY energy audit’s for our customers, to help them eliminate energy waste, reduce their costs and get them on the path to “Net Zero”. We have now made these available for everyone.
They are industry-specific and cover agriculture, hospitality, office-based businesses, manufacturing, public sector and health care, and retail, leisure and entertainment. We have also consolidated a set of tools that can be used to help measure and reduce energy consumption. These include The Carbon Trust small business Carbon Footprint Calculator, The 1.5°C Business Playbook, The Business Carbon Calculator, a Fleet Management Toolkit as well as an SME guide to energy efficiency financing. All we ask is that you subscribe to our weekly newsletter to access them, not a bad deal if you ask us!.
