Organisations are increasingly being tasked with investing in measures to become more energy efficient and reduce their carbon emissions. Failure to do this can not only contravene environmental laws but with ever increasing utility bills, can be a huge cost to the business. Additionally there are corporate responsibility goals to be met and with current forecasts on climate change growing ever more alarming, organisations cannot afford complacency in this area.
Energy management can be a very complicated business, particularly for organisations with multiple sites. How do you keep track of what type of energy is being used where, and for what purpose? How do you know when energy is actually needed and when it’s just being wasted? Do you know if you’re even on the right tariff? It’s a fairly daunting task and without detailed knowledge and data it’s difficult to identify which measures will actually deliver costs savings and encourage the change in behaviour required to get results.
