The 3 steps every business can take towards net zero

Turning net zero ambitions into a reality can sometimes feel complicated. We’ve come up with a way to make it simpler. In fact, it’s as easy as 1,2,3.

1 - Think about how you use energy

With accurate insight into the energy you use on-site, we’ll help you analyse consumption patterns and implement efficiency projects.

2 - Think about how you source energy

We’ll help you secure renewable supply, and store or generate energy on-site, to lower emissions and reduce reliance on the grid.

3 - Think about your value chain

Evaluating emissions across your value chain can be complex. We’ll help you to engage suppliers and reduce third party environmental impact.

The UK commitment

The UK government has set the world’s most ambitious climate change target into law to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 compared to 1990 levels. This ‘net zero’ target will be achieved by cutting emissions as far as possible, before balancing any remaining emissions with activities that remove carbon from the atmosphere. This might be planting forests or using new carbon capture technologies.

Businesses have a key role to play and many already pay carbon levies on their energy costs or are obliged to demonstrate carbon reduction activity through schemes like Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR). We anticipate more widespread regulation will soon require every business to demonstrate a commitment to net zero.

Low-carbon resources

As part of the E.ON Group, we can now offer access to a wider portfolio ofenergy management and emissions-reducing products and solutions. These will not only help you cut costs, but will also future-proof your business as the UK moves towards net zero goals.

Save on energy costs

Energy can account for around 40% of a building’s overall running costs over a lifetime. With the right systems and support, you can reduce these costs while also enhancing your business’s environmental credentials. Our systems can help you manage energy-consuming assets like lighting and temperature control more effectively. We can also advise on updating technology to maximise efficiency.

Supporting the growth of electric vehicles

The UK is preparing to phase out new petrol/diesel vehicles by 2030. As a result, the need for electric vehicle (EV) charging is rapidly increasing. Whether for your company fleet, employee use, or for your customers and partners, the E.ON EV Team can provide bespoke EV charging solutions and also advise on the best overall EV strategy for your business.

Generating renewable energy

Moving to a renewable energy supply contract can be a useful way to enhance environmental credentials. But many businesses also consider installing generation assets on site as a way to produce their own cost-effective low and zero-carbon energy.

As part of the E.ON Group, we can offer access to a wide range of sustainable generation technologies that will give you secure supply and reduce your grid dependence as well your carbon footprint.

Solar Energy

Installing photovoltaic panels allows your business to capture the power of the sun to generate sustainable energy, while also lowering your invoices and carbon emissions

Wind Power

If you have an appropriate location, wind turbines are one of the most affordable energy solutions available, providing your business with financial savings, energy security and enhanced green credentials

Heat Pumps

Any business can generate on-site heating and hot water using sustainable technologies that extract heat directly from the ground or air

Biomass energy

A cost-effective and sustainable solution, on-site biomass units turn cheap, accessible biofuels like waste wood into energy for your business

Combined heat and power (CHP)

An on-site CHP unit enables your business to generate energy, reducing overall energy costs, lowering carbon emissions and boosting energy efficiency by capturing and reusing waste heat

Convert waste heat to energy

Trap unused heat and convert it into clean, renewable electricity using Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology that will reduce your business’s energy costs and carbon emissions

Heat and power systems

As well as CHP and biomass units, we can design, build and manage other heat and power systems including energy from waste (EfW) and combined cycle gas turbines (CCGT) plant

Energy Tax Exemptions

Using energy from low-carbon sources can earn you exemption from the Climate Change Levy (CCL) energy tax.

Sell the energy you generate

Create a new revenue stream for your business by selling any excess energy you produce.

Energy optimisation

The energy landscape is changing, with more diverse and potentially intermittent renewable generation supplying the UK’s power. As a result, there are growing opportunities for businesses of all sizes to participate in the flexible solutions needed to ensure we can balance supply and demand, both nationally and locally.

The benefits of being flexible could include greater resilience for your business, and lower energy costs if you’re able to move demand away from the grid during peak times. There’s also the potential to earn revenue by selling energy back to the grid when it’s most needed.

Working in partnership with E.ON, we can help your business harness the opportunities available through on-site generation, Demand Side Response and battery storage.
