Who is this for?
The cost of energy has increased dramatically and is set to keep increasing. Slowly but surely companies are realising that making energy savings is not only good for the bottom line but is good for the planet.
What results should you expect?
With increased awareness throughout the organisation of the multitude of relatively small actions that can affect the amount of energy consumed, a significant reduction in energy consumption can be expected. Furthermore a review of the condition of fabric, plant, machinery and energy strategy will add to the reduction in energy and carbon footprint. Frequently the identification of just one energy saving opportunity will pay for the assessment.
Areas that could be covered
Most SME owners (82%) believe that energy efficiency is the joint responsibility of themselves and their employees but only 14% invest in the training of staff. Significantly 66% of employees believe that they would change their behaviour if training were given. Other areas to be considered are:-
- Review of the working environment temperatures and seasonal dress code
- Heating systems and boilers
- Energy efficient lighting
- Draught proofing assessment and elimination of leakages
- Renewable energy sources
- Action Planning
The programme will start with a walk around review of the establishment to identify bad practice, inefficient equipment and poor energy habits. The resulting brief report will identify the areas which would benefit from attention and will provide a rapid return in terms of reduced energy consumption.
A follow up programme detailing further longer term measures can be established
The cost for phase 1 of the programme is £400 plus VAT.
The cost for subsequent phases of the programme varies depending on the objectives but each phase will be costed and the expected results quantified before moving forward.
