How can I reduce my energy costs?
Budgets for many businesses have become increasingly tight in recent years. Energy bills are set to continue to rise, with additional pressure coming from renewable energy levies and the scarcity of fossil fuels. Old or poorly maintained electrical infrastructure can lead to higher energy costs, and replacement costs are high.
It is expensive to meet the requirements for greater sustainability from both legislation and public opinion, as is installing renewable energy generation and energy efficiency measures. All these elements mean that companies are looking for ways to reduce their overheads when it comes to energy infrastructure.
How we can help
We work with your business to understand your current energy situation, then analyse the business case for various cost saving initiatives and recommend solutions for the future. These recommendations are designed to generate cost savings now and protect your business from increasing energy costs in the future.
The technologies we typically recommend are:
- Solar PV systems
- Energy efficiency measures such as LED lighting
- Combined Heat and Power units
- Smart EV charging solutions
- Air Source Heat Pumps
We have an in-house design and build team and project managers who will manage the implementation of cost saving initiatives on your behalf, leaving you free to concentrate on running your business. We also offer financing for energy infrastructure and innovations, giving you certainty of cost and asset performance, so you can plan for the future.
Inefficiencies in electrical networks can cost you money in terms of both energy and equipment replacement. Our asset management team will manage your electrical assets through a series of systematic and coordinated activities and practices. We will analyse and manage your network to deliver an optimised asset management plan. This will include asset inspections and maintenance programmes along with asset replacement programmes, based on the age and condition of your assets. This helps you make the right investment decisions at the right time, optimise replacement costs, and reduce energy costs.

We implemented new smart electric vehicle charging systems to power UPS’s central London delivery fleet for what is believed to be the first of its kind in the world on this scale.
We finance, own, operate and maintain London City Airport's existing electricity network. Through optimum asset management, maintenance and replacement, we ensure that the airport maintains supply resilience to support its daily operations and help it achieve its sustainability ambitions.
We were commissioned to design, construct, operate and maintain the electrical infrastructure of HS1, the UK’s first major railway constructed in over a century and its first high-speed railway. The project was delivered on time and on budget, within a contract that extends for 50 years after the start of railway operation.
