Why your company needs an energy strategy

In light of recent economic inflation, geopolitical events and the subsequent surge in oil and gas prices, many businesses have been forced to address their energy consumption.

Traditional sources are now being re-evaluated as businesses, large and small, consider new ways to innovate, bring down their energy costs and develop systems to increase energy efficiencies.

A starting point for businesses who are eager to explore more renewable and sustainable sources is to develop a plan to assess their current energy consumption. When the management of energy assets is considered, it is possible to paint a vision of what is feasible and begin the task of reducing one’s carbon footprint. This will include trading alternative energy streams for more efficient models.

Energy Efficiency Business Plan

Constructing an efficient plan needn’t be a task managed solely by the business owners. At Solgrid, we offer advisory services which can assess your existing use of energy through the various systems and assets currently in place.

Broader goals can be quantified and we can determine your Net Zero ambitions and where your business currently stands on that path. Every plan should have a goal, and we can help make yours more realistic by advising what’s possible and within what timeframe.

Accurately measuring energy consumption associated with equipment and systems is achievable with our range of tools, measuring in real-time energy usage across multiple sites.

However, even the best laid plans go awry.

It is important to factor in the ‘unknowns’ when constructing energy plans. Newer, greener methods of capturing energy can emerge, costs of commodities can rise and fall on market sentiment, and wars can change the availability of certain raw materials which can impact the supply chain.

The best plans consider all aspects and by diversifying your sources of energy and seeking alternatives, businesses are no longer at the mercy of market elements – or at least, are better prepared for unexpected events when they unfold.
