UK energy managers called upon to take new 'Business Barometer' survey
From net-zero targets to the electrification of business fleets – all UK-based energy managers and practitioners are now being called upon to tell edie about their biggest challenges and opportunities as part of our next exclusive 'Business Barometer' survey.
How is the threat of a 'no-deal' Brexit impacting your organisation's energy management strategy? Are you considering setting a 'net-zero- target following the UK Government's recent announcement? And what would help you accelerate the transition to zero-emission vehicles?
edie's new quarterly Business Barometer survey, developed in association with Centrica Business Solutions, takes a regular temperature-check of all UK-based energy managers and practitioners, with a view to analysing current challenges, spotting industry trends and identifying future opportunities.
Survey closes on Wednesday 28th August.
This second Barometer survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete and can be taken by all in-house energy managers and practitioners responsible for managing and reducing their organisation's energy.
The survey and Barometer have been developed primarily for members of edie's Energy Leaders Club – a free networking club for senior energy managers to share best-practice, build knowledge and support one another on the road to reduced emissions. (Details on joining the Club can be found at the bottom of this article).
Whilst individual survey responses will be kept anonymous, the collective results will be curated into a full Business Barometer report which will analyse the key trends and statistics affecting business energy. This report will be updated each quarter and made available for all edie users to download, free of charge.
Our inaugural Business Barometer survey generated some fascinating findings. For example, 59% of respondents told us that Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) will not help them reduce emissions or save money; whilst energy efficiency technologies were cited as a ‘medium’ priority for 34% of respondents, a ‘high’ priority by 45% of respondents, and a ‘business-critical’ priority by 13% of respondents. You can read the first Business Barometer report, published at the end of May, here.
For the second Barometer, a range of new survey questions focus on the transition to net-zero emissions, and the various challenges and opportunities behind switching to all-electric business fleets. The survey closes on Wednesday 28th August and the resulting report will be published in September.
