The government estimates that installing energy efficiency measures could reduce the energy costs of an average small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) by between 18% and 25%. On average, those investments are expected to pay for themselves within just 18 months – making a significant contribution to any company’s bottom line.
However, energy consumption in British businesses has grown by nearly a third over the last 40 years, of which heating makes up 32% of the UK’s total carbon emissions. And when industry experts compare the energy expenditure of “UK plc” to members of the International Energy Agency, they conclude that we’re overspending by £1.6 billion every year. That’s a lot of money going to waste!
To compound the issue, the government’s Clean Growth Strategy requires a 25% reduction in emissions from business and industry.
Whether you run a farm, factory, office, shop or cinema, the time for action on energy efficiency is now. Haven Power’s series of sector-specific guides will help you understand how easy it can be, from no-cost measures to more substantial investments.
