Manufacturing is part of the lifeblood of the UK’s economy, employing around 2.7 million people and providing 13% of all UK business investment. It’s also renowned for being among the most energy intensive industries and one that is most impacted by escalating energy prices and tough environmental regulations.
That’s why at Consultiv Utilities we work hard with manufacturing organisations to get under the skin of their businesses and find opportunities to procure more competitive contracts, identify cost-saving initiatives and drive changes that will substantially reduce carbon emissions for good.
Our experts are on-hand to help you make the most of your energy. We will start conducting audits as soon as possible to find potential solutions and make sure the overall process is as smooth as possible.
Is your manufacturing business ready to get to grips with your utilities?
In England and Wales alone, there are upwards of 169,000 registered charities. Many of these charities have multiple premises, all with their own overheads and utility charges. That can make managing costs difficult over the course of the year.
At Consultiv Utilities our expert team are perfectly placed to help you squeeze more value out of your utilities. We typically begin by conducting audits to uncover any potential solutions and ensure the overall process is as smooth and hassle-free as possible. Get in touch with our team today to find out how we can help you.
We understand that every manufacturing company is different. That’s why our energy experts will take the time to get to know your organisation and how it operates, providing the services and solutions you need based on your specific requirements. Whether you’re a small business or a large-scale manufacturing company, we can support you on the road to making the most out of your energy.
Alongside switching to a more sustainable energy supplier, there are a variety of changes you can make within your business in order to cut the costs of your utilities.
Installing variable speed drives in your fans and pumps, and investing in high efficiency motors, can reduce your energy consumption by allowing you to control the speed of your motor systems. This gives you more than just an ‘on’ and ‘off’ option. Keeping your motors lubricated and checking the belt’s tightness and alignment will also keep them working at maximum capacity.
Reducing the operating pressure of your compressed air can also cut your energy spending, as can switching compressors off when they are not in use. A compressor that’s left on but not used can consume up to 70% of its full load power, according to British Gas.
Keeping on top of your factory heating and lighting is also essential. Is your boiler being regularly serviced and tuned? Is your heat being recirculated? Have you made the switch to motion-sensor lights? These can all work to cut your costs significantly.
Here at Consultiv Utilities, we offer a wide range of services and unrivalled expertise when it comes to energy supply. We firmly believe that manufacturing businesses should be able to focus their efforts on the day-to-day running of their organisations and be able to trust an experienced energy partner with the challenge of procuring the most competitive utility contracts.
Not only can we help you understand the potential savings you can make, but we’ll help you put them into practice too. Implementing our energy-saving opportunities will improve efficiency and lower your costs in the long run.
Through our compliance and green energy services, we can also support you to make meaningful changes that can serve to reduce your organisation’s carbon footprint and demonstrate environmental responsibility.
