Businesses Need More Confidence to Invest in Energy Efficiency
Research has found that over half of the top 250 companies in the UK have introduced energy efficiency measures at their premises but many are concerned that the cost of installing equipment to reduce their carbon emissions is too high.
A survey from Ernst and Young reveals that 71% of top businesses prefer to invest in other areas instead of energy efficient equipment such as voltage optimisation units, as they are concerned about costs and the amount of time it will take to recover the money they've spent on the investment.
53% of businesses have already improved energy efficiency but only 9% have current plans to make any additional changes.
Nearly all of the companies who responded say a substantial increase in energy prices would encourage them to look for ways to reduce energy consumption and become more efficient.
Even if your business can't afford to install new equipment, there are still plenty of energy saving ideas for companies of all sizes to reduce their carbon footprint. Apolloenviro offers environmental consultancy services to help businesses of all sizes cut their carbon emissions.
The government CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme makes it more important than ever for businesses to find ways of becoming more efficient to avoid paying extra costs, so contact Apollo Enviro today to see what they can do for your business.
