Business energy efficiency

Last updated: 24th December 2020

Identify your saving opportunities. Monitor your energy use live.

Measuring your business’ energy efficiency is the first step to going low-carbon. We offer a remote monitoring solution that gives you an overview of all your sites without any site surveys. Or choose solution that gives you incredible live insights into individual energy assets.

If you are trying to demonstrate to stakeholders where you need to make changes or where they have been effective, our two energy effciency monitoring solutions equip you with greater knowledge of your opportunities.

It only takes three steps:

1. Review

  • We’ll start by looking at your current consumption patterns and equipment, analysed by our team of experts.

2. Profile

  • Next, we’ll build your energy profile based on your business-unique energy usage. We’ll suggest changes and improvements to behaviours and technologies that can make a real impact. We call this PowerReport.

3. Monitor

  • Take your energy efficiency to the next level. Hardware installed on your site monitors consumption down to each asset or circuit. Take continuous energy readings and transmit them to a cloud based platform called PowerNow.
