Implementation

Identifying every opportunity to reduce cost and consumption across a business.

Energy price rises caused by changing energy legislation and increases in commodity and non-commodity prices are having a serious impact on businesses’ bottom lines. Our expert team will work with you to identify and implement opportunities to drive down your total utilities cost. We can achieve this through careful analysis of prices, charges and consumption.

Analyse & Act

Using pioneering techniques, we tie together advanced data mining techniques, intuitive data visualisation and experienced energy engineering insight (including site visits) to give you an in-depth, multi-faceted view of your energy use and costs. Our approach is as follows:

  • Agree the starting point, against which to measure performance
  • Identify energy cost elements and undertake advanced analysis
  • Recommend the solutions under two discrete reviews:
    – Consumption measures review
    – Non-commodity charges review
  • Implement the agreed practical solutions and measures, and then verify the performance and outcomes.

Our analysts and engineers use advanced software to overlay degree day weather data, production output, operating hours, processes and more – to discover how your energy consumption and total energy cost comes about. This approach unearths a wide range of opportunities across your portfolio.

Analyse & Act helps you to extract real insight and derive value from the data to ensure robust, persistent and ongoing cost avoidance and savings which last well into the future.

 
 
What is the benefit to you?

Our solution enables you to make tangible financial savings from energy cost and consumption reduction for the minimum initial outlay to significantly mitigate unavoidable price increases. We’ll work closely with you to help improve energy management and optimise the return you receive on new investments in energy assets or technology. Often, we find that organisations have invested heavily in metering, but found that this has not produced the savings that they hoped for. By taking a structured approach to analysing this meter data, we help deliver value from these under-used investments.

Conventional data analysis takes a desk-based approach; producing reports and statistics about energy use but often failing to translate findings into real world savings. Our approach produces definitive conclusions, with practical suggestions for implementation – to deliver measurable savings across all utility supplies.

Review & Recover

Our Review & Recover solution goes beyond a standard retrospective audit, focusing in on the individual costs that make up your energy bill. We apply forensic analysis to your historical bills and other related data, looking beyond the invoices to examine the component parts that make up the bill. This enables us to drive savings out of all elements of the supply chain and recover unnecessary costs from previously paid invoices for up to six years.

Not only can this process generate significant refunds from your utilities suppliers, it can also generate ongoing savings on your energy invoices. Our analysts have established relationships across the supply chain. Combined with our experience in cost audits, this enables us to negotiate harder on your behalf, and to escalate issues and bring them to a conclusion more quickly. In any organisation that is striving to manage its costs, it is important to leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of reduced energy cost and accurate billing and data from suppliers. We understand this challenge and have vast experience of acting on our clients’ behalf to escalate issues to the highest level.

The reason our Review & Recover service has been so successful for our clients over so many years is not only our advanced software systems, but also the expertise we bring when we act as your energy partner. We’re fully equipped to address the issues you face and act as an advocate for you in a wide range of scenarios.

 
 
What kind of organisation is this product designed for?

Both Analyse & Act and Review & Recover are a benefit to any organisation that uses electricity, gas or water and has access to high quality data. The most significant savings are typically realised for clients with HH meter sites or those with complex, multi-use portfolios.

What information do we need to get started?
  • A current Letter of Authority to deal with the suppliers
  • Access to up to 6 years of historical invoices and/or supply contracts
  • Site and meter site details
  • Information regarding CCL and VAT declarations and if you reclaim any VAT
  • Any half-hourly energy data, from fiscal meters, AMR meters or sub meters, or data collector details
  • Associated data such as production data for manufacturers, operating hours, opening hours, DECs, number of personnel etc

“Discover hidden waste through advanced data mining techniques and forensic analysis to truly understand your consumption profile.”
