Which measures work for your business
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.
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
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
Any business can generate on-site heating and hot water using sustainable technologies that extract heat directly from the ground or air
A cost-effective and sustainable solution, on-site biomass units turn cheap, accessible biofuels like waste wood into energy for your business
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
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
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.
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.
