  • The Energy Bill Relief Scheme (EBRS) applies to fixed contracts agreed on or after 1st December 2021 as well as to deemed, variable and flexible tariffs and contracts. It will apply to energy usage from 1st October 2022 to 31st March 2023, running for an initial six-month period for all non domestic energy users..
  • All energy suppliers will apply the same discount. This discount will automatically appear on your statements. Customers do not need to apply for the scheme or contact us.
  • The BEIS department recommends all customers continue to enter into fixed price agreements as normal to shield businesses from future wholesale price increases. This way we can ensure all our customers are protected from the volatility in the current wholesale market.
  • For customers who qualify for the Energy Bill Relief Scheme we kindly ask all qualifying customers to provide us with monthly gas and / or electricity meter reads until end of the scheme. This should be done ideally on the first day of the month or no later than the 10th.This will be a great help to get your bills as accurate as possible and ensure we apply the right discount throughout the scheme period.

Creating An Energy Efficient Hotel : What Can Be Done


Improving the energy efficiency of a hotel you run or own is a great way to save money and reduce the carbon footprint of your business. Not only does this help to reduce business costs but it helps to save the planet too! Since a hotel is unlike any other type of business there are several steps, some of which unique to the hospitality industry, that you can take to make sure that your hotel runs as efficiently as possible. In this blog we offer some top tips for hotel businesses, with advice on how to apply some of the simplest methods for reducing energy consumption and improving energy efficiency within a hotel.


Consider all areas of the hotel from the bedrooms to the kitchen 

Energy efficiency should start in the key areas of your hotel but should become a focus within every aspect and area of the establishment. From the guest rooms through to the kitchen and staff areas. Good energy saving practices should be carried out throughout. 

In areas where guests are not permitted, staff can ensure an energy saving culture is created. This can include teams of people making sure that lights and appliances are switched off when necessary. As well as overseeing the proper use of appliances and making sure that these are serviced regularly. 


Installing Energy Efficient Technologies 

Introducing  energy efficient technologies can make a big difference to the overall energy usage of your hotel. Technologies such as LED lighting, solar panels and automatic heating systems are all great options for reducing energy expenditure. As well as offering long-term savings in terms of costs, they also help to significantly reduce carbon emissions which is great news for the environment! 

These technologies can also have  additional benefits such as improved comfort for guests and staff. For example, LED lighting can provide a brighter, cleaner light than traditional bulbs and solar panels can help to heat hot water. If you’re considering introducing energy efficient technologies into your hotel it’s important to do research and find out which are most suitable for your needs.


Educating Guests on Energy

In the guest rooms, energy-efficient lighting can be installed which is not only more cost effective but also gives off a more pleasant light. Guests should also be encouraged to switch lights and appliances off when they are not in use or when they leave their room for extended periods of time.

For most hotels, laundry has become a hugely expensive and large consumer of energy. This is why you may have already seen some hotels requesting guests use their provided hotel towels for more than one day. This way the hotels can cut down on the amount of energy used for washing and drying.


Regular Inspections and Maintenance 

Regular inspections and maintenance of your hotel’s energy systems are also important to ensure that they are running at their most efficient levels. Any potential problems should be looked into and fixed as soon as possible in order to avoid expensive repairs or replacements later on. This can include anything from checking insulation to making sure air conditioning units are serviced. 

Making your hotel energy efficient is not only good for business but also important for the planet. By focusing on reducing energy consumption and implementing energy saving technologies, hotels can help to reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive contribution to environmental sustainability. With some thought and effort any hotel can become more eco-friendly and reap the rewards in terms of savings. Creating  an energy efficient hotel is a great way to ensure the future of your business and the planet.
