Energy Solutions: Examining the energy solutions approach provided by Utilitywise

658 views

Published on

This workshop will focus on the types of energy procurement available including fixed, flexible,
portfolio and semi-flexible contracts. The aim is to guide you through the energy monitoring and
reduction services that are available to reduce consumption and associated costs, whilst providing
information on legislative obligations within the education sector. We will also discuss recent
examples of energy solutions implemented in a range of educational establishments across the UK.
Examples will include successes from Barking & Dagenham College, Craven College, New College
Durham and Bradford University. The workshop will provide information on energy solutions which
have made real savings, reduced consumption and created long standing behavioural changes
within the education sector.

The invoice batch can cover specific years and/or specific sites, with Utilitywise providing the following: • Any discrepancies in your energy billing will be identified and the supplier held accountable. • We will then liaise with you and your supplier to acquire a rebate if necessary, ensuring that you are kept informed throughout the whole process. • We cannot guarantee savings, however, you will be reassured that your bills have been checked by a team of experts and any opportunities for savings have been fully explored.

Utilitywise bundles this service with energy monitoring products to help you control your energy consumption. Energy Alliance Benefits: • A two year deal with the rates (the budget rate) known in advance. • In the lead up to the Energy Alliance Budget Rate going live, their supply partners purchase the energy forecasted to be consumed. • By taking advantage of the rise and fall of the wholesale market there is the opportunity to potentially provide final billing rates that may beat the original budget price. • The final price will not go higher than the budget’s price, but could be lower.

Energy Management Strategy (EMS) Whilst we are, and will likely remain, a high cost country for electricity generation there are things businesses should do, for example, set up a formal EMS which includes: • Having an energy audit carried out on business premises and business processes. This will establish where energy is being wasted. A range of improvements can then be implemented • A managed and controlled energy system can save a minimum of 5% per year • Creating a culture in business where employees understand how they play their part in saving the company money; Monitor; Target; Control.
  11. 11. MONITORING - ENERGY HEALTH CHECK • The Energy Health Check is the first step in reducing your energy costs and lowering your carbon footprint. • Uses the same standards and methodology as a DEC.
