Controlling consumption and reducing costs in the manufacturing sector

From the largest multi-site manufacturing plants to a single-site start up, energy efficiency and cost reduction is a hot topic in the manufacturing industry. As an energy intensive industry, we understand the pain points and take a tailored approach when partnering with our manufacturing clients, to identify the best solution to reduce overheads. We offer expert advice in energy compliance and legislation, in areas such as CCAs, EII and ESOS, recovering six figure sums for clients to date.

Our clients range from food and beverage, the likes of Harrogate Spring Water to metal and aggregate, such as Anglia Metal Limited. Working in partnership with Made in Yorkshire and Lancashire Textile and Manufacturing Association, we provide expert advice on reducing energy consumption in a energy intensive market.

Case study: Harrogate Spring Water

Harrogate Spring Water

It was our role as Harrogate Spring Water’s exclusive energy partner to introduce a robust energy management strategy, which would drive efficiencies throughout the business and support the growth.

We did this through various avenues, the first being UTILITYi, our sophisticated energy management portal.

  • View all energy consumption data

  • Understanding energy consumption patterns

  • Create environmental/sustainability reports and measures for customers in their supply chain.

Further activity to date includes a full review and analysis of KVA capacity allowance to ensure that the manufacturing site has the correct capacity in place for expansion.

An in-depth energy audit of the site helped us to identify energy efficiency opportunities via renewable investment and behavioural changes/load shifting and TRIAD management opportunities. Further cost saving initiatives, estimated to achieve a saving of £27,000 per annum come 2019, have been identified through Climate Change Levy exemption.

We have offered Harrogate Spring Water a one-stop total energy management solution.

“We pride ourselves on selecting the best supply partnerships, as such, we selected Businesswise Solutions as our exclusive energy management partner for all our energy requirements.”
