SMEs do not receive enough support towards cutting energy bills, research reveals
Close to 40 percent of British SMEs have never received any sort of help or advice on how to tackle their rising energy bills and reduce emissions, recent research on the matter was able to reveal.
The survey quizzed 100 small and medium-sized enterprises across the UK and also found that almost a fifth of all respondents don’t know what Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is and have “no time” to act on cutting their carbon emissions.
Furthermore, almost half of the firms also said they don’t have “readily available” funds to pay for their energy bills and despite nearly three quarters saying they are familiar with “bill shock” during the energy-heavy autumn/winter months, half are putting off examining their energy use.
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.), HeatingSaveoptimizes 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.
