Business and Solar Energy

As the UK races towards energy shortages and potential blackouts, an increasing number of businesses are failing to manage their energy consumption or even read their bills before paying them.  This means that energy consumption is not monitored within a business and could be costing you thousands of pounds.

So, what can businesses do?

Taking control of your energy use is easier than you think. Apollo Energy Tech have a complete energy management solution which enables businesses to not only establish energy use, but put into place energy management techniques. These range from monitoring your energy use, reducing it via immediate and long term actions and generating your own energy so you become more self sufficient.

Apollo Energy Tech support you throughout the energy reduction process, offering training and advice on the best course of action. Companies are given monitoring software in order to assess how successful their energy efficiency strategies are.

All of this ensures that businesses have a simple way to attack their energy use, and are supported throughout by experienced and knowledgeable professionals who are on hand to advise you along the way. Plus, businesses are able to prove their achievements through use of the monitoring software. A win- win situation!

It is best to try and save energy by:


1.avoiding wasting energy, then
2.using energy more efficiently, then
3.using energy from clean renewable sources.

Energy conservation: Avoiding waste - cost nothing, and immediately starts you saving you money.

Some of them may involve some changes to your lifestyle, such as walking or taking the bus rather than driving off in your car.

Others are simple matters of habit - like switching off lights when they are not in use, and checking that the room thermostat on your heating system is set correctly. Conservation does not mean having to go without.


Sometimes, using energy efficiently,
involve a modest capital outlay. Some of the suggestions cost just a few pounds, and will pay for themselves within 12 months. Others require a more significant investment, or may involve professional installation. However almost all energy efficiency measures will eventually pay for themselves in lower energy bills through the post.

 


Using energy efficiently without waste

Once you are using energy eff ciently without waste, one can really start to think about where that energy is actually coming from. Clean, renewable energy sources - like the sun and the wind- are all around us. Sometimes they are a little difficult to tap into, or are more expensive than digging polluting fossil fuels out of the ground.

But there are a surprising number of small-scale renewable energy sources that won't cost the earth, and can be installed at an average UK home or business. And for the energy that you are not producing yourself, you can look at buying certified green electricity or even starting your own wind farm..

Some people want to rush in and use renewable energy from the very start. This is fine, but is likely to cost you more than by first looking carefully at how you are using energy. As most countries don't yet have enough renewables developed to meet demand, it is best to use this type of energy as efficiently and wisely as possible.
