About Energy Management

Energy management is the use of technology and behavioural change to improve the energy performance of an organisation. To be fully effective it needs to be an integral part of an organisation’s wider management processes – and any corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy.

The management of energy is often neglected, even though there is considerable potential to save energy and reduce costs. Rising energy prices, climate change legislation and the need to be environmentally responsible all require effective energy management.

Why do it?

  • Reduced energy bills
  • Reputational advantage over competitors
  • Green credentials
  • Resilience to energy price increase
  • Reduce greenhouse gases
  • Employee engagement and respect

Reduce, reduce, reduce…

  • Reduce costs – this is becoming increasingly important as energy costs rise.
  • Reduce carbon emissions – the greater proportion of energy consume the greater the environmental damage, reduce energy equal reduced carbon taxes. This also promotes a sustainable image.
  • Reduce risk – the more energy you consume as a business or homeowner, the greater risk you are at forced by energy price increase.

There are five primary keys to success…

  • A driven individual:
    This individual is responsible with convincing an organisations senior management that energy management hold significant savings to the business. The most successful method of this is buy working with an existing member of senior management who is already bought into the scheme.
  • Senior Management Commitment:
    This commitment can and should form the main driving force towards an energy efficient business. With out this support and leadership policies and strategies have to constantly be sold to the senior management team.
  • An Energy Policy:
    An energy policy is a document signed off by senior management as way of a commitment to energy management and an outline of subsequent focus areas. This should only be a couple of pages outlining the organisations intension’s.
  • An Energy Strategy:
    This forms the delivery mechanism of energy management. This document is a dynamic and chronological plan which guides you to your desired target. It will include current status, identification of specific focus areas and delivery mechanisms.
  • The Expert:
    This is the service provided by ourselves to guide through all the process from the first thoughts of energy management through to a fully operational plan.
Energy Management

Flixborough won the work through a competitive tender process. They understood our needs from the start. We were a newly formed community organisation, run on cooperative principles and registered as a Community Benefit Society. We were in the process of arranging a bridging loan to pay for some of the installations and were about to open a Community Share Offer to raise further funds.

Flixborough kept in touch with us for progress updates and always believed we would raise the money in time to meet the installation deadline at the end of September 2016. We did so and they completed the installations against a tight deadline. The installs were on buildings owned by other social enterprises and Flixborough kept the occupants informed and happy through the process. They liaised with our meter provider – to ensure no problems getting an export meter fitted later.  They also allowed us regular supervised access to get all the photographs needed for publicity purposes.

The handover process was excellent, with personal phone support to ensure we got our Feed in Tariffs registered correctly and on time. There was one minor snagging issue with remote metering, which was fixed cheerfully.

For the last 15 months, our installations have run perfectly and we have received as much or more electricity as the financial projections promised.
