BSI: Companies Can Cut Energy Costs Up to 30%
Too many organizations use too much energy, according to BSI of London. This is simply because they are not looking closely and systematically enough at their energy usage.
The BSI Kitemark® system for Energy Reduction Verification (ERV) verifies and certifies those organizations that achieve a reduction in carbon emissions through lower energy consumption. Businesses will not only be able to cut costs, they will also be contributing to the global efforts on fighting climate change.
Rob Wallis, BSI managing director, EMEA Region confirms: "We know by experience that companies can save as much as 30 percent in energy costs. This can be achieved through an energy efficiency program managed from A to Z to make sure that all aspects are taken into account."
It has been estimated that in the United Kingdom, there are 5,000 heavy energy users ─ with an annual electricity demand of more than 6,000MWh ─ who are required by the government to register for the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme, the UK's new energy efficiency scheme by Sept. 30. Missing this deadline could cost companies thousands of pounds in fines.
This system will help companies identify their main sources of energy consumption and assist them with putting together an action plan, in training their people and, subsequently, in monitoring the implementation of that plan from year to year.
