With the continuous rise of non-commodity costs as part of the energy bill, which now make up over 50% of charges, alongside increasing pressure for businesses to be smarter with their energy use driven by Government bodies pushing the UK to decarbonise and reduce reliance on traditional fuel sources, it is more important than ever that businesses implement a smart energy strategy, or, if one is already in place, to periodically assess its effectiveness.
Join Powerstar at 10:00am on Wednesday, 24 April, 2019, to explore the concept of business-wide smart energy strategies, including what they are, the benefits they provide, how they should be implemented, and how they can be monitored and optimised for the best results.
While the reliance on the aforementioned traditional fuel sources is beginning to lessen in the UK, due to increased interest in the concept of carbon neutrality, very little of this has been achieved through the effort of business, heat, or transport, with 75% of the emissions reductions since 2012 coming from the power sector itself. If decarbonisation targets are to be delivered as a nation, they must first be achieved on a corporate level, with businesses of all sizes changing the way they use and manage their energy.
To that end, implementing a robust smart energy strategy is an effective way for businesses to take greater control of their energy and reduce consumption, costs, and emissions. Such strategies require the combination of complementary smart energy technologies and monitoring to provide a complete solution fit for the requirements of each business or site, and a multi-layered approach is required to ensure that the strategy effectively enhances the business’ efficiency, flexibility, resilience, and insights.
Webinar guests will gain understanding into the components that make up an effective smart energy strategy and the overall short and long term benefits of a complete, fit-for-purpose strategy to managing your business’ energy.
