Mike Turner, Development Director comments: “It is estimated that British businesses spend between £50,000 and £3million on their annual energy bills and this is set to increase given rising energy costs. According to research from energy provider E.On nearly four million of the UK’s 4.8 million small to medium-sized businesses are potentially missing out on savings of up £2,000 per year each by not implementing energy efficiency measures, such as lighting timers and energy monitors.
“Businesses are being encouraged to take a holistic approach to energy management in order to achieve long-term savings within the corporate building environment. With the Green Deal, which is the Government’s initiative to reduce carbon omissions by 80 per cent down on 1990 levels, just around the corner the public and private sector are set to play a key role in helping to achieve this target.
“But a survey by E.On has found that just 21 per cent of firms use energy efficient technology to reduce their business energy bills. Just over 80 per cent have no energy monitor installed, and 13 per cent leave windows and doors open while running air conditioning.
“Businesses really need to start to decide on an approach to energy management if they are going to tackle rising costs effectively. It’s not just about insulating buildings or encouraging staff to turn lights off; it’s about taking a holistic approach to lead to long-term savings. This involves focusing on exploring energy generation through renewable sources, as well as efficient building performance and addressing building-user behaviour in affecting energy consumption.”
