In this sponsored article, Haven Power says it can help companies hit sustainability goals through biomass-derived power, cut consumption costs and create revenue streams from on-site generation and flexibility.
In an increasingly competitive business environment, every organisation is looking for an edge. For some enterprises, this may mean developing new relationships and introducing innovative products and services. Others might strive to achieve operational efficiencies while also addressing their own customers’ preference for buying from a company with sound sustainability credentials.
Energy is one of the business areas providing plenty of opportunities for this multi-layered approach. Organisations within the Industrial and Commercial sector are placing an increasing emphasis on partnering with their power provider(s), not least because of the potential for energy consumption improvements and savings.
What’s more, many enterprises are declaring their carbon credentials through the CDP – formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project – and in accordance with the greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting regulation. One of the easiest ways for these businesses to lower emissions is to use a low carbon fuel source, such as the biomass provided by Haven Power.
A partnership approach to energy
Haven believes energy should be a driver for success rather than a drain on resources. Our dedicated Relationship Managers work in partnership with our customers and consultants to help develop tailored energy solutions that are easy to implement.
We invite customer stakeholders to join our experts in identifying the energy issues across their business. Haven’s specialists back up these discussions with on-site visits that deepen our understanding of the business and its energy needs. Working alongside each customer, we can then develop a range of energy solutions designed to produce the best results.
The right kind of energy-efficiency program can help a company save up to 30% of its energy costs within three years, according to consultancy Bain & Company. The savings might arise directly – from adapting existing equipment (e.g. motors, boilers, pumps, heating systems) or introducing new versions for example – and indirectly, via subsequent reductions in maintenance, materials and waste.
Haven’s energy services use the data we have, as well as our on-site observations, to help customers cut electricity consumption and save money. We can also offer advice on using energy more flexibly and reducing peak-time usage to further decrease expenditure.
The move towards a low carbon economy creates opportunities too. One possibility is producing renewable power on-site, and Haven is already working with customers to match their needs to the right wind and photovoltaic (PV) generators. We’ve also signed Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to sell the power back to National Grid, and can help customers explore other income-generation options such as Demand Side Response (DSR).
These approaches allow customers to gain certainty about their long-term energy expenditure, reduce their exposure to fluctuating power prices, and create a new revenue stream.
Taking advantage of Haven’s sustainable energy solutions can help customers comply with carbon reduction regulations and meet their Corporate Social Responsibility and sustainability targets.
