What is an Energy Cost Audit
An Energy Cost Audit is a complete review of every element of your energy costs. This holistic process focuses on the way your business consumes energy to establish a bespoke profile. Using this profile, we dig deep to ensure that EVERY part of your electricity bill is tuned perfectly to help you to reduce business energy costs.
We use actual data from various sources to build your profile. We then validate that your energy plans and contracts are fit for purpose and delivering the very best value. Your Energy Cost Management Plan includes a detailed action to deliver the lowest cost, fit for purpose energy solution.
Electricity rates, tariffs, network charges, and metering charges are essential in managing energy costs. The ‘missing link’, though, is strategy. Your business will always be reactive to the energy market without a strategy to manage your energy costs. Your Energy Cost Management Plan includes a strategy to position your business as a sophisticated energy consumer, wary of the energy industry’s pitfalls.
