eo consulting recognise that there is often a very justified degree of scepticism regarding over inflated utility efficiency claims using tactics akin to second hand car salesman. The reality for schools is that in a period of tight budgets the cost of achieving long term energy efficiency benefits are often outweighed by more pressing education capital needs.
Our aim is to deliver quick win savings upfront and where appropriate at risk to enable data loggers to be introduced across the whole estate so that utility usage can be analysed for further long term efficiency savings through:
- spend to save measures and providing evidence to access cheap loans
- reducing risk by receiving early warning signs for unknowable spikes in costs
- continuous monitoring of usage to ensure that the benefits of a behavioural change persists
Our case studies suggest that in most instances it is possible to fund the introduction of data loggers by ensuring billing is correct and all academy contracts are aligned to get scale economy purchasing power.
The audit of data from such data loggers, combined with our understanding of your wider estate requirements, will underscore the best investment strategy for sustainably lowering your long term operational expenditure on utilities and obtaining third party funding for renewable projects.
