Energy Management - getting back to basics

As UK businesses and service providers continue to feel the squeeze of rising wholesale energy prices, GRAHAM’s Energy Manager is advising a “back to basics” approach to energy management.

Gary McClune, a Chartered Energy Manager and ESOS Lead Assessor, pointed to the realisation of £1.1m in actual energy cost savings for one of GRAHAM’s key public-sector clients as proof of his analysis.

Recorded over a four-year period, the 31% reduction in costs, and 20% reduction in consumption (kWh), was officially confirmed to the client in its Annual Energy Report in June 2018.

GRAHAM began working with this public sector partner in 2014 as part of a ten-year Energy Management Contract.

So just how has this considerable sum been realised in such a short timeframe?
