Improve your organisation's energy efficiency and you could make significant savings on your energy bills
An energy audit is the perfect starting point. It will give you insight into your business and property, to identify the energy saving measures most suitable to you.
The first step towards reducing the energy consumption of your business is to understand how much you’re currently using, and where it’s being used. Once we know this, we can help you make informed decisions about the best ways to reduce your energy usage and which energy efficiency measures would be most appropriate for your organisation.
Our half day on site energy audit includes:
Analysing energy usage to identify long and short term patterns affecting your bills.
Speaking to employees to build a picture of their behavioural patterns.
Outlining your action plan through an audit and review of your bills.
Specific implementation costs and payback times, along with environmental and marketing benefits.
An energy audit will provide you with goals for improvement, organising and analysing your energy-related activity, with the key objective of saving cost.
The objective of the energy audit is to highlight the physical and behavioural changes that will reduce energy consumption. The savings from each of the change measures is shown, along with the associated payback period.
Energy saving devices
We can also provide recommendations on energy saving devices that can help you reduce your energy consumption. They vary from simple cheap timers to more costly investments like solar panels or energy efficiency lighting. Each will be shown with the energy saving it would achieve, the carbon footprint reduction, and the expected payback period.
All forms of insulation will help to significantly cut your heating costs and reduce your carbon footprint. We can give advice on how best to insulate your building and offer a range of insulation products.
Energy Efficient Lighting
Low energy lighting uses 80-90% less energy than conventional tungsten lighting, and can last up to 10 times longer. Fitting low energy lighting is simple, helps the environment and should reduce your lighting bills.
They can read and transmit data to your energy supplier and provide you with accurate real-time information on energy consumption. Trials by the Carbon Trust showed that small and medium sized businesses saved on average 12% through a combination of energy saving programmes and installation of smart meters.
Voltage Optimisation Service
As voltage optimisation experts we can provide expert advice to homeowners and organisations across the Beds, Herts and Bucks area.
Voltage optimisation is an energy saving technique that reduces the energy voltage supplied to a particular site in order to reduce losses in electrical equipment. The process reduces energy consumption, CO2 emissions and electricity costs. Voltage optimisation products include:
VoltisHome - this easy to install voltage optimisation unit is installed between the meter and consumer unit and shows you straight away the reduction in voltage. Reduces your consumption and increases the life of appliances. This offers great savings compared to other systems and typically only takes 2 years to pay for itself.
Domestic Boiler Manager - uses a thermal response programme and electronic sensors to maximise efficiency of boilers. Enjoy savings immediately with payback in 2 years typically.
By law electricity companies must supply electricity in a range from 253v to 207v. Whilst all electrical equipment is designed to operate within these tolerances there is no need for supplies to rise above an optimum value of 220v. As the average supply voltage in the UK is in the region of 243v single phase, on any given day your business will be using more electricity than it needs.
This is where voltage optimisation comes in. Using voltage optimisation technology your electricity supply is constantly monitored and then supplied at a constant and optimum flow with three consequences:
Energy Consumption - savings in the region of 15-20%
Carbon Emissions - reduced in the region of 25%
Equipment Life - Increased up to 90%
