Managing your business energy consumption efficiently

Business energy plays an important role to keep the business running without any disturbance. When we talk about business energy the first thing that comes to our mind is selecting the right energy supplier.

Now we can keep talking about selecting the best possible supplier and reducing the cost of energy. But one thing we have to keep in mind is how we, the customer use the energy. Consumers at many times keep on wasting energy without their knowledge. That is why the need for energy management should be given importance. Energy management business means basically monitoring, controlling and finding a way to conserve energy in the most efficient way.

Energy management business consists of following steps:

  1. The organization should keep an eye at the unit consumption of every month. They should also take a note of it, and keep updating the pattern at the end of every month.
  2. They should find out the reasons and the situations where the energy wastage is occurring the most. The company can try changing few things to figure out what exactly causing the problem. They can replace the equipment to see if the previous equipment was faulty and if that was causing the higher unit consumption. If not, then keep looking for it. Keep investigating.
  3. Once the faulty areas are picked. Then the organization should start taking essential steps to save the energy.
  4. The company then should analyze their consumption status to find if the energy saving process has worked or not.

Energy management business is very crucial to the organization not only because it will help the organization to reduce cost, it is also important because the saved energy can be used by the supplier to provide energy to another organization. You can now raise questions like how will that benefit our company? But you should think of it this way that wasting little more energy will not give you any better result. The Energy management business is not about saving power when it’s necessary, it is about saving the power when nobody needs them.

The Energy management business should be used as well to make sure that the equipment is not running when nobody is using them. There is literally no reason to keep the equipment running overtime, it can even harm the equipment in rare cases.

One should keep it in mind that Energy management business is not something the organization should try once in a lifetime. It is a long term process and it should be practiced every now and then, periodically. The company should maintain a data sheet which will consist all the data regarding energy consumption. And they should keep reviewing the data every month and take a note of it. They should also do a review of it every time.

Say 'No' to cold calling on business energy

Unfortunately, business electricity and business gas customers in the UK are bombarded with unsolicited cold calls on a daily basis.

This unscrupulous approach does not offer the business energy customer an impartial view on the market and the price offered is more often 20-30% above the current retail price for electricity or gas.

At Energy Advice Line we strongly advise customers to not accept these offers and follow our simple steps to ensure that they are not locked into an uncompetitive contract.
