The following presentation takes a look at a renewable energy for business case study involving a UK chemical company based in Newport, South Wales. It looks at how they became more energy efficient, generating their own energy and even exporting electricity back to the grid.
With the increasing cost of energy, pressures to reduce waste, improve environmental performance and energy efficiency at work many businesses are now looking at ways of saving energy and reducing costs in this important area. In the UK almost a third of small to medium sized businesses identify the cost of energy as a block affecting their future chances of success. Identifying ways in which these businesses can improve their energy efficiency and so reduce energy costs is probably one of the best, and potentially easiest ways of improving their potential for improved profitability and growth over the long-term.
