However, with only 4% of medium-sized businesses employing a dedicated energy specialist, gaining the level of insight needed to take control of energy consumption and implement the right measures to drive savings can prove a challenge. Even if businesses utilise monitoring technology, without the knowledge, experience and time to identify and implement changes, businesses could be missing out on significant savings.
To help address this, npower offers encompass. This service combines a web-based monitoring and targeting tool providing data on energy use with the support of a dedicated team of experts offering insight into energy management.
It is the team that sits behind the online monitoring and targeting tool that differentiates encompass. With extensive experience in identifying opportunities for savings, the team is on hand any time of day to help businesses get the most out of the service.
Michelle Quinn, encompass support manager, explains: “The team can work with businesses to create custom-built reports, for example, by incorporating the size of sites and opening times to ensure findings are specific to each organisation. We can also help with setting energy reduction targets, with alerts set to identify when consumption is deviating from agreed tolerances. We also advise businesses on how to feed reports into procurement decisions, ensuring actual consumption is considered when forecasting and purchasing energy.”
