We take a look at two end-user case studies that look at an integrated approach to energy and carbon management.
Sixt, the car rental firm, has moved from what was a simple procurement contract with its energy consultant to looking across its whole portfolio for opportunities. These include energy reduction, flexibility and onsite generation to name just a little of what is being considered in its broader energy strategy.
BankEnergi brings together national experts with local organisations to create a local energy market on the London South Bank. Part funded by the UK Government’s InnovateUK programme, the project will identify ways of reducing energy demand, generating local energy, and improving local air quality. It is also setting up a local balancing mechanism unit to help grid system operators manage their demand and supply profiles more accurately. These should enable local bodies to save up to 20% from their fuel bills through smarter use of energy assets and a local energy trading scheme.
