COST - CARBON - RISK
We help large businesses to reduce energy costs and accelerate the shift to net zero
Energy is one of the highest cost areas for every business.
Yet it’s an area bristling with issues: seismic market changes, carbon reduction pressures, poor hedging performance, unscrupulous brokers, volatile energy prices, and so on.
Knowing what is the right thing to do, when, and why is a challenge for anyone.
3 common problems businesses face:
Seismic market changes are underway.
With energy generating an average of 70% of a company’s CO2 footprint, energy is going to play a major role in any company achieving its ESG goals over the next 20 years – both within your business, and in your supply base (i.e. your Scope 3 emissions).
There’s a big shift to decentralised energy generation (solar, wind, CHPs, etc.). It’s creating opportunities. And it has major implications.
New technologies are being developed thick and fast (intelligent buildings, EV, carbon capture etc.) and offer up some major opportunities to reduce cost and carbon.
Change creates uncertainty.
Energy prices have been and continue to be volatile.
There are a vast range of areas under ‘energy’, and it quickly gets technical – it’s easy for a supplier to pull the wool over the eyes of anyone that lacks internal expertise
Carbon needs to be valued correctly to enable companies to plan for and execute decarbonisation changes effectively.
Most businesses are unprepared.
Businesses understand the problem statement. Few know what to do about it. In a world of rapidly emerging technologies, which horse do you back?
Many companies have an outdated energy strategy. They lack deep energy expertise and market awareness. Many use unscrupulous energy brokers with opaque charging structures, delivering substandard service levels.
Most companies have poor access to data and inadequate systems.
There are many moving parts in play that all need careful consideration and on-going management.
We work only with large businesses that are head-quartered in US, UK and Europe. And we’re able to service their global needs.
For some businesses we provide an on-going service.
For others, we do short term consulting projects that solve problems and drive long term improvements.
