Expert utilities and energy management and consultancy

Your business utility tariffs aren’t the only thing that could be causing your electricity, gas and water bills to be higher than they should be. There are lots of other variables that can push up your annual utility bills. Obvious things such as building heat loss, and inefficient lighting and heating systems as well as highly technical supply issues such as the Agreed Supply Capacity or Power Factor. But we can help by providing you with a detailed analysis of your electricity, gas and water supply contracts, your buildings and the business’ consumption and management of utilities and show you how savings can be made.

Highly experienced business energy consultants

Your Business Energy Consultant will be an energy and water expert, with a wealth of experience and an in-depth knowledge of your industry or sector and the energy and water industries. They will be able to carry out a thorough review of every element of your energy management and consumption and advise you on how to keep your costs down. First we’ll analyse your utitlities tariffs and supply contracts, there may be adjustments we can make to reduce your business utilities costs without changing suppliers. Next we’ll audit your business property and everything within it associated with the consumption of energy and water services.

Business premises energy audit

Your energy tariff is only one of the things we can review for you. There’s been huge advances in efficient new lighting, heating and on-site renewable energy technology. Unless your business premises are less than five years old there’s a good chance you’re using old inefficient technology. We can carry out a detailed energy audit for you, to see how and where you could make changes to improve your operating efficiency. Some suggestions will require no investment to reduce consumption – like turning the heating down and closing your windows to keep the heat in!

Others will involve the replacement of inefficient systems and equipment. Where we advise on the installation of energy efficiency technology, or on-site renewables we’ll also show you, in detail, the payback period and cashflow positive finance options.

Energy efficiency projects: solar; LED, battery storage, heat pumps

We’ve all seen how technology has come on in leaps and bounds. It seems everything’s got smaller and more efficient – heating, air conditioning and even the humble light bulb. The savings in energy for commercial premises can be significant. For instance, an LED uses 60% less electricity than those fluorescent strips you’re working under. Commercial premises battery storage charging overnight at off peak rates can make big reductions on your daytime energy consumption and your business energy bills – allied to solar panels and or, wind turbines electricity self-sufficiency and income in the form of a feed in tariff (FIT) is possible.

We’ll show you what’s possible, design an energy reduction plan, provide you with full costings, accurately project your business’ ROI and project manage any installation of energy efficient equipment or renewable energy assets.

Energy grants and rebates

Energy grants and rebates

There are lots of useful rebates, tax breaks and other incentives available to businesses like yours that want to become more energy efficient, use renewable energies, and reduce their carbon footprint. Your energy saving expert can tell you what’s available to you and help you through the application process.

Energy management and monitoring

Our energy tech partners have come up with a real time utilities analytics tool which provides detailed business premises consumption reporting down to appliance level. Areas, or pieces of equipment which are inefficient are quickly highlighted. Cloud based, the system provides a dashboard to your desk top or mobile from the onsite utilities monitoring equipment. Alerts can be set to report energy consumption spikes providing early warning of equipment malfunction. If you’ve multiple sites the system can be configured to show individual as well as combined dashboard reports.

Emissions analysis

Emissions analysis

The government is putting more and more pressure on businesses to reduce their carbon footprint. At The Energy Check, our energy saving experts can work out how much impact your utilities are having, and what your business can do to meet government targets. They’ll help you to understand your carbon emissions and let you know how reducing them could bring down your energy bills.

Power factor correction

Power factor correction is about analysing your energy supply to see how efficiently your electricity is being used. We can measure your inflow of energy against your ‘useful output’, to see if you’re wasting any electricity. Then we can help to put things right, by installing equipment that analyses and improves your power factor.

Heat mapping

Heat mapping

Many businesses waste energy through inefficient heating systems and insulation. Your Business Energy Consultant can install sensors in your building, to show where heat is being wasted, as well as analysing temperature and humidity levels.

These wireless sensors can be applied in a single room or across a whole site, and help you to improve your energy efficiency. They bring down energy costs and can even predict the need for site maintenance.

Utilities risk management

It can be difficult to keep up with the utilities market. Uncertainties over climate policy, political interventions, and regulatory changes can make this a volatile environment at the best of times.

That’s why we’re here. At The Energy Check we’re experts in energy – it’s all we do all day. We have specialists in place to keep an eye on the energy market and respond to all these changes – ensuring you’re always ahead of the energy curve.
