Case study 2 February 2020

Integrated energy solution

  • SAVINGS – Approximately £11 million

The challenge

A major energy user in the telecoms sector was facing significant pressures from rising utilities costs, whilst also looking to reduce their environmental impact. With a diverse portfolio, they were looking for a service provider who could provide a holistic and integrated approach to managing their risk.

The solution

We established a dedicated delivery team to oversee all utility-focused activities, in a unified effort to reduce cost.

The team provided a wide range of services including an energy performance contract with guaranteed savings, procurement services and utility bill validation.

We also undertook capex project identification and delivery, building energy management system controls consultancy and operation, and risk management and water services.

Finally, we provided consultancy around the client’s compliance with the ISO:50001 Energy Management Systems standard and consultancy on Power Purchase Agreements.

The outcome

The energy performance contract is set to deliver approximately £10m of savings over three years.

By integrating the delivery teams within the business, we were able to cleanse data and drive efficiencies for the business. As a result, an additional £1m of savings has been identified and delivered through individual data analysis projects.

Further savings have also been identified with historical billing for a complex property portfolio. The extension of our contract with the client will see the scope expand, with the energy performance contract, waste and water specialists working within one core team, dedicated to promoting sustainability across all of the client’s business areas.
