Cut Energy Bills for your Business
Most businesses could use a lot less energy. Experience shows that even low and no-cost actions can usually reduce energy costs by at least 10% and produce quick returns.
“A 20% cut in energy costs represents the same as a 5% increase in many businesses’ bottom line.”
Why bother about energy efficiency?
Energy is a significant cost to any business. According recent survey, 87% of businesses reported an increase in energy costs in 2013. And yet, this is an area often overlooked by businesses because they “don’t know who to go to, or where to go, to get the right information.”
The energy bill of a typical office-based company could be 65% higher than that of an equivalent energy efficient office.
The day-to-day pressures of running a business means that energy efficiency comes low down the priority list. Time seems to be the biggest issue for most businesses. You want to do something but there’s other things you need to do more urgently … changing electricity tariffs takes time, to sit down and go through it, ring companies, get quotes.”
EMEX was created by energy users from small and large businesses in the UK to identify measures where energy and cost savings can be quickly and easily made with little or no cost.
Save time to source, discuss and implement energy cost saving measures at EMEX. You can meet with the entire energy supply chain across 2 days under one roof.
EMEX is FREE TO ATTEND REGISTER NOW
Organised in very close partnership with the Energy Managers Association (EMA) I represent, EMEX is YOUR event jam-packed with industry insights, training latest and upcoming legislative changes and how these are affecting businesses in the UK. All key to understanding the risk, regulation and opportunities of being an energy consumer are clearly addressed across 4 training & seminar theatres:
- Energy Management Training
- Energy Service & Performance Contracting
- Energy Use in the Built Environment
- Green IT & Technology
A FEW OF THE INITIATIVES TO BE LAUNCHED AT THE SHOW
- By the time EMEX opens its’ doors in November, organisations will have one month to ascertain whether they are affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and a further one year to carry out an assessment. ONE + ONE is an information campaign aimed at educating the approximately 10,000 organisations affected about their legal obligations. In addition, and just as importantly, it explains the potential energy savings opportunities.
- The Energy Institute and the EMA will discuss the practical aspects and how best to carry out assessments within your business in order to make change. Furthermore, EMEX will explain how major energy users like Morrisons Supermarkets plc have been successful in rolling out a huge energy efficiency programme, and how other businesses can learn from them.
- Find out how the EMA are actively demystifying energy performance contracting, particularly through development of the EnPC Guidance and Code. Many of the organisations helping to develop the Guidance will showcase at EMEX, including British Gas, RWE nPower, EEVS. One of the highlights is the case study of the country’s biggest energy performance contact, bringing together legal input (Pinsent Masons), the energy supplier (Honeywell) and the customer (Peterborough Borough Council).
- The vast array of options and lack of financial backing are often the biggest stumbling blocks when introducing energy efficiency programmes. At EMEX, RBS will explain some of the many choices in this area and how to make them work for you. In a similar vein, Utilitywise’s Tim Hipperson explains why it is sometimes prudent to use an energy purchaser.
