The sectors we work in

EDUCATION

Understanding the energy markets can be time-consuming, and it’s often difficult to know exactly what the best deal is, or in which areas you can save the most money. Schools have tight budgets to stick to and procuring energy at rates to match that is a tricky business.

HEALTHCARE & CARE HOMES

The care sector is widely reported to be under pressure as local authority funding dwindles and demand increases. Energy consumption cannot usually be reduced where vulnerable residents are concerned, so it’s all the more important that your utility contracts are competitive and invoices are constantly accurate.

COMMERCIAL SMEs

SMEs spend a lot of time controlling costs and securing funding. According to research from Opus Energy, 40% of SMEs say that costs are one of the biggest challenges they face. The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) revealed that a significant amount of small businesses (71%) reported an increase in their operating costs in 2017.

LEISURE

Energy costs are the second biggest budget item after staff costs in a typical sports centre, according to Carbon Trust. They can account for as much as 30% of the total operating costs, which is a significantly higher figure than in other sectors.
