The winter could be a good opportunity for business energy users to take steps to get cheap electricity and tackle their carbon emissions.
This is according to Hugh Jones, managing director of advisory services at Carbon Trust, who explained that as energy bills are usually higher at this time of year, firms could see tangible benefits from the implementation of energy efficiency measures.
Speaking at the Property Week Carbon Reduction Commitment webinar yesterday (December 1st), the expert said efforts to cut power usage, such as behaviour changes, can have a noticeable effect in the short term.
"In the longer-term it becomes a much more strategic game. Some organisations are already thinking about this and are looking five, ten or 15 years ahead at how they can effectively decarbonise their business," Mr Jones continued.
His comments come shortly after energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne delivered his annual statement, in which he said the government is committed to encouraging businesses to improve their energy efficiency, while also removing some of the regulatory burdens they face.
