Innovative and Tailored Energy Saving Solutions

Working with Catalyst provides you with industry energy consultants and professional engineers that work to reduce consumption and energy spend through identifying waste in industry, researching associated government incentives and helping to develop a strategy to manage current and future consumption requirements.

In addition to energy saving solutions we review waste streams for converting into energy generation, supplementary power sources and demand side response solutions all aimed at generating revenue opportunities on top of traditional energy saving schemes. 

We also review the market for emerging innovative technologies that can provide additional benefits to our clients.

Funding Solutions Overview

Our recommendations are largely self-financing through a guaranteed energy saving approach. This is achieved by reviewing your current monthly energy spends, and agreeing the percentage of savings needed to prove viability on any given project or a blend of projects.

The financing can be structured such, that any capital costs are offset against reductions in utility bills, whilst still returning a monthly saving back to the business, after which you reap the full financial benefit.

In addition to this there are quite a few investor ready support provisions in the energy efficiency industry, as investors see the implementation of energy solutions as a secure investment opportunity. Since making the initial investment can be a barrier for some, we can help by offering great financial packages on and off balance sheet.

This means you can put in place energy efficiency measures without any upfront capital investment.

How our Consultants work with businesses

Our range of site level energy reporting solutions will put your business back in control of its energy consumption. For those sites that already have a half hourly electricity meter we have a range of data capture solutions that can be incorporated with other existing equipment that will provide you with access to your energy consumption online through our Catalyst Energy Advantage™ product.  We use this data to provide you with a detailed monthly breakdown on your energy usage. These reports are an invaluable resource for companies that are looking to control and conserve energy consumption.

We would always recommend capturing and recording your energy consumption ahead of any other energy saving projects. This way you can measure your return on investment and accurately determine how much energy you save from each project that you carry out.

To support this we supply a full range of smart meter solutions for electricity, gas and water, which will also allow us to capture your energy usage and collate this data in to a series of easy to understand reports.

All of our reports include further ideas to help reduce your energy consumption and a range of reports to help you understand your own carbon footprint. We will automatically send you these reports on a monthly basis so you haven't even got to think about it, making it easy to compare month on month consumption. This can include commercial gas meters and an online water management scheme to support additional requirments.

Energy Reporting Solutions

Access to your own consumption data is the corner stone to any effective energy management project and is vital in establishing your monthly energy patterns. Our range of solutions will allow you to accurately capture and report on your own energy use. We provide thousands of energy reports to our customers on a monthly basis and these help our customers to get a visual pattern of how they use there energy and more importantly where they waste energy. These reports are extremely powerful and with a bit of ongoing sensible housekeeping and key monitoring and targeting of energy you can easily cut your energy consumption by 20% with little or no capital outlay.

In addition to this our invoice validation service will remove the need for your business to verify your invoices. As we will fully audit any and all invoices in our search for discrepancies, over and underpayments in your billing. We will then report back to you ensuring that your invoices have been approved for payment. This includes a full retrospective auditing solution to challenge and recover historical payments that may have been made in error to your utility provider.

Site Survey

One of our Consultants will visit your site to carry out an energy consultation and identify any energy-saving opportunities that we can identify. The consultation is based on installed equipment and operation data, including billing and consumption analysis.

If you have any questions on our range of energy reporting or our energy consultancies approach then please feel free to contact us, we will be glad to explain more to you.

Funding Streams

We we are totally impartial, which allows us to capitalise on all available national and or local funding, grants and incentives for renewable technologies and energy efficiency measures including private green investment funding. We can even provide support for leasing options, allowing you to spread the cost over the savings generated from your chosen technology.  Renewable funding is available for both capital expenditure projects and for government backed incentives such as FiT and RO applicable solutions. 

Funding Provisions:

  • Shared Energy Saving Programme is a fully funded carbon reduction proposition which offers our clients the opportunity to upgrade the heating and/or lighting systems within their commercial or public buildings, achieving higher levels of energy efficiency and resulting in significant savings in energy costs. There is no up-front outlay required as the cost of improvements are repaid through the savings achieved on the property's energy expenditure over a defined period of time. This also means that the financing is off balance sheet so gearing is unaffected. Clients also receive a warranted and guaranteed growing share of the savings, plus ownership of the assets at the end of the contractual period.  This solution is suited to all types of commercial and public buildings including schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, care homes and offices. Measures included currently include biomass boilers, LED lighting, Solar PV and other renewable heating systems.
  • The Green Deal is a government-led initiative which aims to improve the energy efficiency of businesses, reducing CO2 and creating as many as 250,000 new jobs.  Currently lighting, mechanical ventilation and heat recovery measures are all covered under the scheme.
  • Private funding is available from a number of investment companies that are keen to position capital into government backed renewable opportunities such as Solar PV, Wind and Biomass.

Renewable Technologies

We can provide access to any form of renewable technology that will help both control, measure and reduce energy consumption to achieve energy or cost savings and a reduction in carbon consumption.
