Could your Business Benefit from An Energy Audit?

For almost every business, the opportunity to save energy and have a reasonable payback period on any expenses is a no brainer. Figuring out how to do just that can be the key question and that’s where an energy audit could come in. The first thing to understand is what an energy audit is before you can decide if it is valuable for your business. An energy audit in its basic form:

· Understands the areas a business consumes energy

· Highlights areas of wastage

· Pinpoints poor/incorrect energy management processes

· Suggests solutions to cut usage and costs

With someone experienced in energy management and where businesses consume energy, it can be a very simple process, only needing to walk around your property identifying areas that of concern/interest. They can either be conducted internally or by an outside company that may come with a fresh outlook on the processes in place.

Knowing what an energy audit does, you can now look into whether your business could benefit from carrying out one. The main benefit is of course on the bottom line, you could be spending money on energy that is wasted or unnecessary for completing your product/service, which in turn leads to generating a better margin. Without looking into what you are using you may never realise the savings that could be made.

If you are the type of business that is focusing on environmental issues and sustainability, it will also benefit by showing where you could lower your carbon footprint, giving not only some good PR stories but also new USPs which could position you ahead of your competition. With the way sustainability is going, if you don’t look into it, someone else will.

One of the other benefits to highlight is it helps with energy strategies and ensuring your business is on track to meet upcoming and already existing regulations. As the government continue to bring forward environmental commitments, they have been implementing tighter restrictions on business energy consumption and reporting. An energy audit can help you focus on areas that will bring you in line with compliance.
