Have you got a clear energy strategy for your business?
There has never been so much discussion about Energy as in recent times, with the market full of experts, suppliers, brokers and commentators.
This already complex topic has been made even more confusing with supply shortage headlines, high prices and government interventions. What can business owners do to mitigate short term impact and formulate a business energy plans for the future?
If you, like many other business owners, are considering your options then your overall strategy needs to balance a complex and often contradictory set of objectives:
Sourcing energy in the short term
You’ll need to consider what kind of supplier to get your energy from, whether you need a long term or short term contract. and you’ll need to examine cost models and consumption forecasts.
On-site generation for the longer term view
Are you in a position to utilise technology to reduce your reliance on the fluctuating prices of the wholesale energy market? On-site generation may help you, but be sure to conduct a full assessment of how long this will take to deploy and how this might change your costs looking to the medium term. There are a wide range of options and technology solutions in the market, some will suit your business more than others.
Did you know?
The earlier you source energy contracts the better your options will be.
Reducing energy consumption
Ask yourself if smarter working could help reduce costs and increase energy efficiency for your business. After all, the cheapest unit of energy is the one you don’t use.
Spend time thinking about what reports or monitoring you’ll want to use to help you achieve this and then look into the range of products that you’ll need to deploy. This could range from something as simple as LED lighting, to heat pumps which is why a proper assessment is vital.
Reducing your carbon footprint
We can forget we need to balance out all of the above with our affect on the planet and the role we all play in reducing our impact. When looking to reducer carbon some key elements must be factored in such as how much carbon you use and identifying the most carbon intensive areas of your business.
Set yourself a target to work towards and ensure any strategy around this is sustainable and fits well with the other elements of your plan.
