Energy Management

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

Our corporate PPA solutions provide our customers with access to fully funded renewable energy solutions.

Self Funded or Fully Funded Energy ManagementOur range of energy management solutions can help support a companies need to reduce energy consumption and spend

Our energy management 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 for energy management 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.

In addition to self funded solutions we also have access to a range of technology partners and can support a range of fully funded renewal solutions through the use of a corporate PPA.

    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 requirements.

      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.

      Unrivaled access to energy technologies and funding streams

      Our position as an independent consultant allows us to use the best of breed suppliers, contractors and renewable technologies available on the market today to deliver a full scale energy management efficiency to any business.

      We have an impressive network of partnerships and joint ventures with leading independent energy efficiency companies and it is this impartiality that gives us unrivaled access to technologies and funding streams, enabling us to secure finance to support energy saving initiatives for the business and public sector.

      We span all aspects of energy efficiency, from consultancy and project management through to delivery at a local level via our national network of accredited assessors and installers.

      Our proven expertise in retrofitting properties with renewable technologies and energy efficiency measures allows a business to finally take control of energy cost, reduce carbon and have a lasting impact on the environment and energy sustainability.

      Funding Options

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Business Energy Management AuditAre your energy bills too high? Do you want to know exactly what you can do in your business to reduce energy costs?

      Catalyst has audited around 250 businesses across all sectors, ranging in energy spend from £10k to £25M annually. Our results show that most businesses can reduce their energy bills by 10% through better energy management, or by 25% with carefully chosen energy efficient equipment upgrades.

      Some businesses have even saved more than 50% with a blend of renewable technologies, on site micro generation and fully automated monitoring and targeting solutions.

      In real financial terms, this means that for a company with an annual electricity spend of £100k, a company can reduce this and save around £10k per year, with minimum capital expenditure.

      Or with a small capital investment we have seen savings of between £15-30k with a measurable return on investment of between 1 and 2 years only. These sort of savings often surprise people, but they are very real and very achievable.

      Everyday our Business Energy Consultants help Directors, Business Owners and Energy Managers identify energy efficiency opportunities and a blend of renewable technologies to help eliminate energy waste and improve profitability.

      Too often, energy audits fail to deliver the promised dividends. Sometimes the audit captures only a few of the potential energy saving opportunities, and often the follow through is ad hoc: projects are implemented in a piecemeal way without a clear focus on priority areas, and so the bigger benefits never materialise.

      Our systematic approach ensures we overcome these barriers. The first step entails our energy specialists carrying out a comprehensive energy audit (Phase 1) to provide a clear and unbiased evaluation of each property.

      We identify all major energy saving opportunities and estimate the costs and benefits of each potential project, so you can prioritise those areas most worth tackling.

      We help you understand what your energy efficiency opportunities are, and show you how to take advantage of any government funding, renewable incentives or investment.

      What does an energy audit involve?

      Our service will provide you with one of our professional energy auditors who will spend several hours assessing your site for energy efficiency measures and financial saving opportunities.

      During our site survey and energy audit, one of our energy auditors will visit your site and discuss your working processes with your senior staff.  They will look to gain an understanding of your working operations and inspect your site to gain a further insight.

      They will look to inspect your high energy intensive pieces of equipment, your lighting, heating and ventilation equipment, air conditioning, energy controls, refrigeration and chillers, air compressors, water consuming equipment, and anything else that is using energy that they feel could make a significant impact.

      Depending on the type of the audit, the auditor may take additional measurements of temperatures, pressures, light levels, power draw, and photographs to support any further proposals or reports.

      Each of these measures are developed so that the report includes the following measures for all businesses

      > Analysis of existing energy use and technologies

      > Short, medium and long term plans and strategies for development and growth

      > Analysis of any previous environmental or sustainability proposals and studies

      > A description of the existing conditions

      > A description of the proposed recommendations

      > An overview of suitable renewable technologies

      > Expected annual savings associated with our recommendations

      > Expected annual carbon savings

      > Simple payback and/or other financial measures, such as return on investment or life cycle savings

      > Examination of energy bills

      > Corrective advice about bad usage habits

      > Identification of high-energy areas/activities/equipment

      > Written report with prioritised action and investment plan

      We take an approach to not just identify potential monetary and carbon savings but to provide a convincing case to make them happen through installations of energy, water and waste saving measures. Through this we help to achieve:

      > Compliance with current and future environmental targets and standards (e.g. ISO 14001, CRC, ISO 50001)

      > Monetary savings

      > Comfort of site occupants

      > Improvement of building assets

      > Solutions which specifically meet your individual needs.

      Following the Site Audit we will make specific recommendations of technologies which may be suitable. Alongside this we will recommend financing options which range from private finance, corporate PPA, Renewable Heat Incentive plus Invest-to-Save budgets and loans.

      Technologies include:

      > Data Logging, Energy Monitoring and/or Sub-Metering

      > LED Lighting

      > Solar PV

      > Biomass

      > Combined Heat and Power (CHP)

      > Anaerobic Digestion

      > Wind Power

      > Heat Capture and Storage

      > Rainwater Harvesting, Grey Water Recycling & Storm Water Management

      Once agreed, we can arrange and fully project manage the installation of these technologies.

      If necessary or specifically requested:

      > Analysis of metered interval data (if available)

      > Thermal imaging assessment

      Phase One Report

      Our comprehensive audits are carried out by accredited specialists with sector specific expertise who can provide authoritative information and advice.

      Our feedback report provides a summary of each energy saving project we’ve identified, including costs and energy and carbon saving calculations.

      We also identify no-cost and low-cost energy saving opportunities, and consider longer-term strategies for reducing emissions such as renewable and low carbon technologies.
