For any firm considering a business energy consultancy, it’s not just about saving money on your firm’s utility bills but also helping our environment.
That’s because the business energy consultant will be able to highlight where savings can be made and by using less energy there will be less carbon dioxide produced which benefits all of us.
In addition, an energy consultancy may be necessary for those firms that are looking to make big cost savings and for those who are wanting to keep ahead of future government legislation.
There may also be a need for firms who want to be recognised for their energy accreditation, for example, ISO 50001.
An independent supplier of energy services
However, you don’t have to source an independent supplier of energy services since switching to new utilities provider for your business may offer the service as part of their package.
This is one of the reasons why all firms should consider searching the marketplace every year to see whether they can enjoy lower bills and enjoy other attractive benefits as well.
For example, some energy providers may offer better levels of customer service, cheaper bills if paying by direct debit and longer-term contracts, which may help some firms wanting to plan their cash flow over the next five years.
Not all suppliers will offer terms of five years but many do offer contracts of up to two or three years which may be helpful. However, this may not be such a good deal should energy prices fall during the contract.
Using less energy
The energy consultancy may not just concern itself with using less energy by introducing new ways of working but also recommend switching to cheaper off-peak tariffs or even investing in new equipment that uses less energy.
Their expertise can be used to save money on gas and electricity and also for water.
On top of this, there is a growing need for firms to switch to energy that comes from green sources, particularly solar and wind power, and an energy consultant can help facilitate this switch.
In a nutshell, the reasons for undertaking an energy consultancy include:
Improving your firm’s energy efficiency
Improving your energy governance
Complying with legislation
Achieving an energy accreditation.
