Reducing energy consumption is everyone’s responsibility, companies should all be committed to reduce business energy consumption.
RUMM’s business energy management systems and solutions assist companies to take control of their energy savings and solutions. Read about RUMM been working with DONG Energy as an approved delivery partner for their innovative Climate Partnerships Programme.
In July, RUMM were invited to facilitate a session at an Energy Efficiency workshop hosted by DONG Energy and the Local Government Chronicle for councils who applied for the LGC 2014 Energy Efficiency Award. There were six councils in attendance: Durham County Council, East Riding of Yorkshire, Rugby Borough Council, Oxford City Council, Greater London Authority and West Sussex County Council.
The workshop focused on the challenges faced by councils and the importance of understanding consumption behaviour through monitoring and targeting energy usage; leveraging the benefits that additional data and energy efficiency projects can provide, through identifying opportunities for carbon footprint and cost reduction.
The event was chaired by Mike Hogg, Managing Director of DONG Energy Sales. He commented “For me, what it all comes down to is the simple fact that the best electron or molecule is the one we don’t use. By focusing on the demand side, businesses can meaningfully reduce energy consumption – and therefore costs, which can have a very significant impact on the bottom line. RUMM demonstrated how powerful it can be to use energy consumption information to identify savings opportunity and significantly reduce cost and energy use.”
This sentiment was echoed by local authority energy experts in the presentations they gave during the session.
