Business energy bills were higher in 2014, research suggests
Businesses paid more for their energy in 2014 largely due to changes in energy and climate change policies, the Government admitted during its Annual Energy Statement, a recent news report on the matter was able to reveal.
The report says that “For the majority of business, energy costs form a small proportion of total operating costs (around 3% overall) and the impact of policies is estimated to contribute to around 1% higher operating costs overall.”
Nevertheless, the government wants to do more to help small and medium sized firms (SMEs) shop around for the “best deal that suits their business needs” and have access to a redress scheme if things go wrong, the statement added.
SME owners who’re particularly worried about the adverse effects energy price hikes might have on their bottom lines should seriously consider investing in a high-end solution designed specifically to help them optimize their energy consumption, and this is specifically where the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System could help.
By using data coming from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), HeatingSave optimizes a building’s boiler-based central heating system and helps customers save anywhere between 20 and 30%+ on their bills.
HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.
