Energy data management specialist highlights wide-ranging benefits of energy efficiency
A report compiled by the International Energy Agency has outlined that the scope of energy efficiency goes ‘well beyond the simple scaling back of energy demand.’
The research demonstrates that energy efficiency has the potential to support economic growth, enhance social development, advance environmental sustainability, ensure energy-system security and help build wealth.
The report adds that these benefits, however, are “being limited by existing policies”, since energy efficiency is ‘routinely and significantly undervalued.’ At Concept Energy Solutions, as energy monitoring and targeting experts we urge companies to recognise these benefits and lead the way in the inevitable shift towards energy-saving business practices.
Concept Energy is a leading energy and carbon management consultancy and Peter Stockwell, one of our directors, says: “As well-established experts in the sphere of energy reduction, we have seen first-hand that efficiency is about more than just saving money.”
He adds: “Providing a boost to your energy security, demonstrating commitment to environmental protection and investing in the rapidly-expanding low-carbon economy – these are all benefits that can lend a competitive edge to any business. And this is only going to become more relevant as energy prices continue to rise.”
