Whilst the news that Governments’ net zero plans remain intact as a result of the invasion of Ukraine, current energy prices are at unprecedented levels and are a matter of survival for some businesses.
The good news is that by focusing on energy efficiency and onsite energy generation the likelihood is that you will both save money and carbon emissions. Energy savings and carbon reductions go hand-in-hand.
To develop a carbon reduction plan, you first need to understand your current performance whether that is in lighting, motor loads, chilling, heating or the other main uses you have.
This can then be compared to “best in class” performance. Knowing what the result of implementing best in class solutions is a good start to formulating a plan and to building a business case for investment. It will also tell you how close to net zero, so the remaining gap can be considered.
Minimising your exposure to the grid by reducing consumption and generating power onsite is the best way to mitigate the risk from volatile grid costs. On-Site Energy can help with understanding your current carbon and energy performance, identifying the opportunities for efficiency and energy generation, and then delivering them.
We can also help unlock the opportunities by funding them on a zero-capex basis where some of the savings are used to fund the measures. Your business benefits from lower costs and the full carbon reduction savings, without needing to spend anything.
