Manufacturers hit by rising energy costs

Manufacturing organisations feel powerless in the face of rising energy costs, according to business leaders.

Manufacturing organisations feel powerless in the face of rising energy costs, according to business leaders.

Manufacturers believe that the UK’s challenging energy market is “out of line” with European and US equivalents. Energy intensive industries operating in continental Europe enjoy energy prices up to 50% lower than their British counterparts, according to manufacturing organisation EEF, while companies in the US continue to benefit from the shale gas revolution.

Companies facing high energy costs should continue to look for energy efficiencies and can make cost savings by reducing their energy consumption. Energy monitoring products such as Utility Insight can give manufacturers real insight into the way they are using energy across their business. Utility Insight is a web-based data reporting platform that allows businesses to produce a range of energy reports filled with data from any smart meters fitted on their premises. When accessed via the web, energy managers can monitor consumption in real time and identify inefficiencies.

Manufacturers can also make practical changes to their businesses by carrying out energy audits and retrofitting their premises with energy efficient technologies.

Manufacturers don’t have to feel powerless in the face of rising energy costs. When you secure your energy accounts through Utilitywise, you get access to our energy efficiency solutions through your Service Pack. Find out more here or contact our manufacturing specialists on 0845 259 1104.
