Small businesses are starting to become more energy efficient, report suggests
Energy efficiency is becoming an increasingly important topic for small companies across the UK as they attempt to minimize their operational costs, recent research has been able to reveal.
According to a study earlier this year by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), nine in ten small companies seek to be more energy efficient in their own business, and while more than three quarters (78 per cent) list cost savings as a motivator, a considerable 70 per cent say that protecting the environment is an important motivator for action.
A quarter see energy efficiency as a marketing tool, finding it a viable way to attract customers and help promote their business.
FSB national chairman John Allan says that small businesses are enthusiastic about energy efficiency and this desire should be capitalised on for the good of their business and the environment.
However, he adds, ‘What our research does tell us is a simple ‘one-size fits all’ approach will not work as different businesses are driven by a diverse range of factors.’
HeatingSave – helping every business become more energy efficient
Domestic and non-domestic customers alike can take advantage of the impressive level of energy efficiency enabled by the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System, which allows user to save 20 to 30 percent on their gas and electricity bills by optimizing consumption levels across any building, depending on its specific heat-loss profile.
Plus, the system also includes automatic occupancy detection features, allowing the temperature to be reduced to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
