How to find business energy efficiency advice


SwitchmyBusiness.com will always keep you updated on the latest energy efficiency advice but there are other places that offer advice for businesses too. We’ve created a list of organisations that will be able to help with advice on energy efficiency and installing renewable energy solutions.

Local councils

Most local councils will have information on energy efficiency for businesses. They will be able to provide you with information on the latest business energy grants available.

Business energy suppliers

Many of the energy suppliers will have information on how to ensure your business is as efficient as possible, especially the ‘Big Six’ energy suppliers.

Gov.uk

This is an online resource for businesses and home owners provided by the government. This site can tell you if there are taxes and schemes that will help your business to become more environmentally friendly.

The Carbon Trust

The Carbon Trust advises businesses on how they can benefit from being more sustainable and energy efficient.

Energy Saving Trust

The Energy Saving Trust provides energy solutions for businesses. The site also contains information for households too and has sections for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Smallbusiness.co.uk

This site provides useful products, services and resources for small business owners and those starting up a business. The service is an online one so they are unable to provide tailored advice to individuals.

The organisation has helped businesses over the last ten years to reduce their fuel bills and install sources of renewable energy. They can help through training, audits, surveys and support.

YouGen

The aim of this site is to make it easy for homeowners and businesses to find the information they need to make informed choices about improving their energy efficiency or installing renewable energy solutions. The site helps them to find installers they can trust.

If you know of any organisations that offer business energy efficiency advice or if you work for such an organisation please let us know and we will include your suggestion on the list.

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
