Our Energy Consultants help business owners and Energy Managers identify energy efficiency opportunities to help eliminate energy waste and improve profitability. Our approach can help you understand what your energy efficiency opportunities are, and show you how to take advantage of government subsidies and programs.
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.
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.
