There are significant opportunities to reduce and optimise sites, immediately reducing carbon output and saving money.

Mitie can deliver this service remotely and can ensure that your business is ready to respond quickly when business operations are permitted to return to normal.

Our Services

Thanks to our end-to-end capabilities, we can advise, implement, deliver and manage everything from standalone Energy services to a fully outsourced energy management solution.

Our framework covers everything you need to procure and reduce your consumption of energy and carbon impact. And the greater the integration of your energy services, the higher your savings.

Our Simple Framework

We have designed a simple framework to meet your organisation’s end-to-end energy, carbon and sustainability needs.

We ensure that you are buying your utilities at the right price, at the right time, aligned to your business and risk profile, and whether you want renewables or not. We do this through three key services:

Procurement: Our Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) trained procurement team specialise in negotiating and tendering utility contracts. These include fixed and flexible agreements, as well as renewable, private wire electricity supply and corporate power purchase agreements (PPAs).

Risk Management: Our team of Financial Conduct Authority-accredited risk managers track market developments in real-time, focusing on spotting and understanding any potential threats from wholesale markets or policy and regulatory changes. We work with our clients to develop tailored utilities risk management strategies which protect them from these fluctuations, managing over £1.6 billion of their energy exposure.

Bill validation: Our bill validation service consolidates utility data across your portfolio. This provides full invoice validation, processing, query management and reporting of your gas, electricity and water invoices. Our sustainability experts can also use this data to identify areas for savings and help complete mandatory reporting on your behalf.

We help you develop strategic utility reduction plans and identify opportunities to lower consumption through either our building optimisation service or capital projects. We do this through four key services:

Utilities optimisation: Our team of highly experienced professional engineers and energy managers adopt a continuous improvement, data-driven approach combining our capability across energy management, building management systems, remote building analytics, measurement and verification and facilities management to deliver bespoke utilities optimisation packages. These unlock sustained savings and working environment improvements that can help boost bottom line profits and achieve corporate environmental and sustainability goals.

Building Management Systems and controls: 60-80% of a building’s energy consumption is managed via its building management system, as well as the performance of key building services such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. It is therefore vital to ensure that this system is maintained for best performance. Our building management system team delivers an ongoing support service with regular scheduled maintenance visits to ensure continued system efficiency and reduced costs. And as we deliver over 170 of these projects each year, you can be assured that your needs will be supported by a highly experienced team.

Energy projects: As well as advising you on your energy, utility and sustainability needs, we can also implement those recommendations, providing you with end-to-end service delivery. Our Energy Projects team provide an extensive range of services ranging from initial surveys, proposals, business case support, solution sourcing, project management and delivery of works. To complement these core solutions, we also offer remedial compliance works and a range of closed system services.

Metering: Industry estimates suggest that between 5-30% energy savings can be achieved through the adoption of a robust metering strategy and energy management program. To help you capitalise upon these potential savings, we offer a comprehensive range of independent sub-metering and fiscal metering services. This includes a complete survey and design service to develop your tailored metering strategy. Installing meters is only the first part.

We help customers stay compliant with environmental legislation and address the wellbeing of your employees in their working environment. We do this through two key services:

Environmental compliance: As one of the largest low carbon consultancies in the UK, our in-house team can help you with your environmental compliance, improve your energy efficiency, reduce green-house gas emissions and save you money. We work with large, global organisations, and last year undertook over 3000 audits for over 200 clients. From a single office to a large multi-site estate, our team can undertake audits, provide recommendations, analyse and audit data, and ensure compliance with energy and sustainability standards.

Wellbeing: We understand that your business is constantly being challenged to do more for your employees’ workspace wellbeing. Our experienced interdisciplinary team can advise you on design and management practices that will ensure the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes for your people. We do this by drawing upon the latest technology, academic research and behavioural change theories to help you define, embed and realise a successful holistic wellbeing strategy for your organisation.

Built upon the discrete services that sit within our Buy>Reduce>Comply framework, we can optimise the performance of your estate and reduce your carbon impact.

Energy as a service: Our Energy Services solution combines our Financial Conduct Authority-accredited procurement and risk management expertise, with our award-winning energy management team’s experience. We generate insights from often unconnected data, helping identify otherwise hidden opportunities to maximise efficiency, reduce costs, improve environmental performance and enhance environment-related wellbeing. The resulting energy solution covers the full journey from purchase and utilisation, through to compliance.

Plan Zero as a service: Carbon is an increasing concern. Plan Zero as a Service is our proven approach to develop and deliver sustainability and net zero carbon strategies for your business. Our approach is simple but effective and is proven through our own progress towards our 2025 Net-Zero targets. We will identify your baseline position, and develop a Carbon Management Plan with you, which will identify specific opportunities to reduce your carbon across your operations.

Optimised Buildings: We optimise buildings and estates through strategic assessments. Combining the expertise of our specialist teams and technical solutions from across Mitie we can create a holistic view of funded opportunities to enhance your building’s performance.
