Learn how expanding your portfolio to offer your customers cutting-edge energy management technology increases your revenue streams, strengthens your brand, and demonstrates your brand as an innovator.
Businesses across every industry require energy for their day-to-day operations. Whether it be to run an air conditioning system or power an entire assembly line, businesses devote significant funds to energy expenditure and, at the same time, increase their carbon footprint. While this might not have been of major concern in the past, the global threat of climate change and the proliferation of environmental issues is triggering a transformation of the energy landscape, resulting in an increasing focus on sustainability.
While one positive outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic was an 8% reduction in global carbon dioxide emissions, this is likely only temporary. Industry experts have expressed valid fears that rebound emissions in a post-COVID-19 world will quickly obliterate all the gains accrued when many people stayed home, unless there is significant investment and emphasis on energy efficiency, clean energy, and sustainability. And it’s not just these experts that are concerned about this worrying trend – 57% of consumers have expressed that they would change their purchasing habits in order to reduce negative environmental impact.

Wireless energy monitoring can help your clients
Your clients are probably aware that there are better ways to manage energy resources, optimise performance, and become a more sustainable business. What they are lacking is knowledge of exactly how to take action and what tools they will need – and how to implement their plan cost-effectively. This is exactly what you will be able to provide them through your partnership with Centrica Business Solutions.
Our energy insights solution is a market leader in energy data analytics and provides your clients with real-time visibility into their energy consumption across their entire estate. Our solution consists of our suite of Panoramic PowerTM hardware and industry-leading, cloud-based energy management platform, PowerRadarTM. Our Panoramic Power wireless sensors harness the power of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) to collect real-time energy intelligence and analytics of energy data at a circuit-level of granularity. The sensors are self-powered and non-intrusive, allowing for rapid deployment across a facility within hours, with little to no disruption to operations.
Our partners act as resellers for our Panoramic Power technology, leveraging our data and analytics capabilities to offer value-add services to their clients. From site survey, installation, on-boarding your clients and marketing support – we’ll show you how.
Key benefits of our Panoramic Power sensors:
- Improved operational efficiency
- Real-time energy data helps identify inefficiencies in operations and enables early, proactive action
- Lower energy bills through reduced wastage
- Predictive maintenance alerts to reduce downtime
- Extended equipment lifespan
By sharing our technology with your clients, you enable them to achieve cost savings and improved energy efficiency, with the added byproduct of improved sustainability that is increasingly in demand by today’s consumers. In addition to promoting our energy insights solution, our partners work closely with us to identify cross-selling opportunities for other distributed energy solutions – like solar and combined heat and power. Whatever your role is in relation to your clients (i.e. consultant, developer, agent, etc.), gaining a reputation as the service provider who offers solutions that result in lower costs, increased profits, and improved client satisfaction will strengthen your own brand.
Experience the power of together
One of the biggest lessons learned from COVID-19 is the importance of social responsibility. As members of society, we are responsible for taking care of one another, protecting the health of our most vulnerable members, and protecting our environment and planet. Today’s consumers and business leaders are becoming ever more aware of the importance of sustainability and energy efficiency, putting demands on companies to pay more attention to their environmental practices.
Companies are actively looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable world. If you, as a service provider, can offer solutions that meet that need, it should be easy for you to upsell your existing clients and generate new business. Joining Centrica Business Solutions’ Partner Programme will give you everything you need in order to do just that.
Together, we can help companies leverage the latest technology to drive a data-led energy strategy, enabling them to effectively manage their energy costs, reduce their energy consumption, be more efficient, and demonstrate sustainable energy practices.
