Free energy advice service for Suffolk Coastal SME's

Free energy advice service for Suffolk Coastal SME's

Small and medium sized business in the Suffolk Coastal District have access to a free specialist energy advice service to help them reduce their carbon footprint, cut running costs and enhance reputation.

To date, the project has identified potential annual savings of almost £700,000 and 3,500tCO2(e); 135 business have been seen in this time which represents average savings of almost £5,000 and 26tCO2(e) per SME. These savings are made up of a whole range of measures including heating modernisations and replacements, improvements to building fabric and insulation, lighting upgrades, employee behavioural change and appliance and heating controls.

Each SME that signs up to the service receives a comprehensive on-site review followed by an Energy Report and Action Plan. The report details the organisation’s annual energy spend and carbon footprint and prioritises actions that are most likely to generate the most significant cost and carbon savings. Following the site visit and report, we are here to work with you to help you implement our recommendations.

If you have any questions, would like more information about this service, or would like to book a visit, please contact Aimee Clark on 01394 444257 or

More detail on the service can also be found on the Suffolk Coastal website.
