Why consider the services of an energy and carbon management consultant?
When it comes to energy and carbon management, businesses are often confused about which energy and carbon reduction initiatives they should focus on and in what order.
- If renewable power is a cheaper option than efficiency measures when is that a better alternative?
- At what point should I be looking into buying carbon offsets?
- Is it better for my business to purchase renewable power rather than generate power onsite?
- Which initiatives will deliver the best financial, environmental and social benefits?
- When is it cost effective to install batteries onsite?
Every business’s situation and goals are different and as such their approach also needs to be different, and often a multi-pronged.

How The Ecoefficiency Group’s energy and carbon consultants can help your business
Our Business energy management services can help you to reduce your company’s energy consumption , operating costs and environmental impact. Energy and carbon management with The Ecoefficiency Group includes:
An energy audit analyses your business’s energy usage and costs, checks that you are on an optimal energy plan, identifies areas of waste and possible efficiency opportunities. There are three levels of audits that may suit your business.
Level 1. This audit is a good place to start if your business is just beginning an energy management investigation. It provides an overall picture of your energy consumption and identifies low- and no-cost measures to improve energy efficiency.
Level 2. This level of assessment has a higher accuracy than Level 1. It identifies the end use of energy supplied to your business. This allows you to focus on specific energy efficiency measures that might require some capital investments but have reasonable payback periods.
Level 3. You will receive a comprehensive study of all major energy saving opportunities as well as financial, technical and environmental feasibility assessments of recorded measures.
The Ecoefficiency Group can install real time energy monitoring systems to help identify what is contributing to your overall energy consumption and peak demand.

A demand tariff occurs for high energy using companies and is often the most costly part of your bill.
