Investigation

Providing the insight to inform reduction strategies and determine the feasibility of new investment

Expertise and insight to support your strategy

Our Investigation team is made up of experienced analysts and qualified engineers, working together to conduct thorough examinations of your data and organisation to help inform new strategies. We’ll conduct on-site energy surveys, work with you to fully understand your organisation, and use the latest analysis tools to form a total picture of your energy usage, helping us to inform both energy reduction strategies and determine the feasibility and potential performance of new projects before investing in any new technology or generation. As independent, technology-agnostic experts, you can rest assured that you will receive impartial advice that you can rely on.

“Understand the true viability of projects in terms of their impact, return on investment and feasibility against your core business objectives. ”

Energy Surveys

Without an understanding of what drives your business and without looking at your usage data beforehand, the insight that can be gathered from energy surveying is limited. We pride ourselves in contextualising the facts that the data presents, because without an understanding of the priorities of your business, meaningful recommendations for energy reduction are impossible.

Informed by base data analytics, our energy surveyors visit your business and know where to investigate to understand energy usage and the part it plays in your business. Alongside electricity and gas usage, we can also look at water usage on site and transport, to give you a full picture of energy consumption, environmental impact and carbon footprint. We’ll provide you with a bespoke roadmap to cost and consumption savings, from employee engagement to implementation of new systems and technologies.

Alongside looking at electricity and gas usage, we can also look at water usage on site and transport, to give you a full picture of energy consumption, environmental impact and carbon footprint.

Rather than providing you with a report which may be shelved or pushed down the priority list, we go beyond simple recommendations for energy reduction by looking at supply, demand, management and delivery; backed up by robust savings projections.

 
 
What is the benefit to you?

The core benefit of using our energy survey solution is that we will tailor our survey process and outputs to suit your business. If you do not have capex to fund a large scale project, or have a risk averse attitude to new technology, we present the facts and then tailor our recommendations to suit you.

What we provide is a bespoke roadmap to your energy efficiency cost savings, offering a balanced view of energy reduction opportunities, whether this be through management of the people in your business, or through implementation of new systems and technologies.

What kind of organisation is this product designed for?

Any organisation who wants to look at utility reduction initiatives but has not had the time or motivation to take it forward. We can also provide a benefit to any organisation who has been through energy surveys but not extracted maximum value form these, or those that have yet to look at their water and transport usage.

What information do we need to get started?
  • Any utility data, from fiscal meters, AMR meters or sub meters.
  • Information on operating patterns, shift patterns, timing of production runs etc
  • Insight into your business, its cultures, activities, attitudes and drivers.
 

Feasibility Studies

Our engineers can conduct comprehensive feasibility studies to assess the practical, technical and commercial merits of an energy-related project, from new investments to optimising existing assets. From high level investigations to in-depth due diligence and developing the business case, we can offer bespoke support.

Our feasibility studies include:

  • Site reviews of on-site generation, energy reduction and/or demand-side management schemes
  • Investigation of the costs and benefits of installing CHP
  • Review of potential for renewable generation
  • Review of potential for renewable heat
  • Advice, design and accreditation of heat networks.

 

Our financial modelling can provide you with a complete picture of the economies behind any given project, using forecasting of energy and non-energy costs to build up a comprehensive overview of payback periods and income.

The reviews we carry out are completely flexible to your requirements; we can carry out high level investigations, in-depth due diligence, optimisation and development of business cases. This solution is not just for those embarking on new projects: if you are looking to optimise existing assets then we have a solution to suit you.

We combine the expertise of Inenco’s consultancy division with support from a team of energy trading and renewables experts, to offer a solution that truly stands out from the crowd. We believe in providing a holistic technical and commercial analysis of projects, complete with insightful advice on the practicalities of implementing a project.
