ENERGY EFFICIENCY DAY: HOW CAN YOU LOWER YOUR ENERGY CONSUMPTION?

Overview

Rising energy bills have had an impact on us all. One thing energy consumers can do is look at how to reduce energy consumption.

Energy Efficiency Day is the perfect time to look at your costs and figure out if you’re using your energy in the most intelligent way possible.

 

WHAT IS ENERGY EFFICIENCY DAY?

Energy Efficiency Day takes place on the first Wednesday in October. Dozens of energy efficiency advocacy groups come together to raise awareness about reducing consumption.

It’s a day to share tips and tools to promote the benefits of energy efficiency and encourage people to think about what they can do to save energy.

 

WHY IS ENERGY EFFICIENCY IMPORTANT?

Energy efficiency has multiple benefits that can have a positive effect on businesses and the planet.

 

REDUCED COSTS

If you want to save money, the easiest thing you can do is reduce your energy consumption. eEnergy estimates that 30% of all the energy that is currently wasted comes from commercial buildings. Some of the highest energy consumers’ annual savings could be as high as £3.1 million just by introducing energy-saving solutions.

 

REDUCED CARBON EMISSIONS

Burning fossil fuels is our biggest source of energy. On average, around 50% of our electricity in the UK is generated using fossil fuels, creating carbon emissions and damaging the planet. Using your energy more efficiently produces less damaging waste and carbon emissions, improving your carbon footprint.

Lowering carbon emissions now puts businesses in a good place for the government’s net-zero plan. There’s no harm in getting started early and reducing carbon emissions where you can.

 

HOW CAN YOU SAVE ENERGY?

There are small changes businesses can make that can help to lower energy consumption:

  • Switch to energy-efficient light bulbs.
  • Switch off lights in areas that aren’t occupied or invest in sensors.
  • Use power-saving mode on computers.
  • All computers should be turned off when not in use.
  • Avoid using the printer; only use it when it’s essential.

Employees would have to get involved, be responsible for their own equipment, and ensure they are turning everything off at the end of the day.

These are only a handful of changes you can make. EIC can find solutions that will save you money and help you reach net zero targets.

FAQs

See a selection of our most frequently asked questions.

Which suppliers does EIC work with?

EIC stands out from other energy consultancies because we’re completely independent.

This independence allows us to offer supply options from a wide range of energy suppliers, all of whom are unrelated.

Our energy advice is unbiased, giving you the freedom to make informed decisions for your business.

We have a proven track record of skilfully negotiating cost-effective contracts, ensuring you consistently get the best energy prices when you partner with us.

What if I am already with an energy consultancy?

If you’re already working with an energy consultancy, it’s a good idea to start exploring your options well in advance, preferably 18 to 24 months before your current supply contract expires.

It’s essential to distinguish between your energy supply contract and your energy consultancy agreement.
You have the flexibility to switch your energy consultancy while keeping your current energy supplier intact.

What happens after the energy procurement step?

Our comprehensive account managed service provides our clients with peace of mind throughout the entire energy procurement process.

When you choose our fixed energy procurement service, we’ll assign an account manager to you, someone equipped with the expertise and abilities to provide a customised solution that aligns with your unique needs and requirements.

The professionals who make up our dedicated procurement team are well-versed in resolving inquiries and skilled in engaging with energy suppliers to negotiate contracts on your behalf.

When is the best time to renew my energy contract?

The timing for transitioning to a new energy contract is flexible; you aren’t bound by a fixed schedule or renewal date.

Given the ongoing high volatility in the global energy market, it’s increasingly crucial to look beyond traditional renewal dates when contemplating a new contract.
