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

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.

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.
