Report Advises Businesses to Start Energy Saving Now

A new report suggests that business leaders need to address their business energy efficiency and improve it quickly in order to meet carbon reduction goals.

A study from independent analyst research firm Verdantix reveals that rising energy prices, the threat posed by climate change and the increasing risk of energy supply disruption are among the major reasons company heads need to maximise the efficiency of their business energy consumption.

Verdantix highlight that the supply gap within the energy market is likely to increase the volatility of business energy prices.

The report advises that in preparation for this, companies need to adopt a "multi-year efficiency strategy", which includes installing measures such as lighting controls and other energy efficiency tools and technologies that will deliver monetary and carbon savings.

Variable speed drives and intelligent HVAC controls are also identified as effective ways in which firms can reduce their energy usage and save money.

In addition, switching energy providers can enable businesses to benefit from cheaper price plans and make essential cost savings.
