Control Energy Costs (www.cec.uk.com
), a utility management specialist, is looking for further expansion after setting up a new Yorkshire operation.
The company has set up a team of analysts to work with local companies on addressing some of the crippling energy costs that are hindering industrial growth.
It is an approach that is working, with more than 30 Yorkshire companies already signed up, receiving potential savings of over £500,000 to date.
The firm believes there is now significant opportunity to support businesses coming out of 24- to 36-month contracts and potentially facing up to 50% cost increases due to the rising price of energy.
CEC also offers access to a purchasing collective that gives manufacturers —usually too small to take part — the opportunity to benefit from flexible purchasing and energy management.
Head of CEC Liam Conway said: “This investment in creating a dedicated team and hot-desking space is our way of proving our commitment to the region.
“Industry is our big focus, and we have enjoyed a lot of success in the West Midlands and the South East, helping firms to reduce their energy costs through careful planning, negotiating the best possible deals and smart energy management.”
CEC offers an initial ‘no cost, no obligation’ audit review of both current and historic energy arrangements, looking for opportunities to secure retrospective refunds and rebates, reduce non-commodity/third party charges and, where appropriate, advise on future energy contracts.
As part of its expansion into Yorkshire, it has also agreed to become a patron of the Made in Yorkshire Group.
