Ultimate Checklist for Hiring an Energy Consultant

Are you a Business Manager or Facilities Manager, responsible for your establishment’s energy efficiency?

Perhaps you oversee the energy bills and overall energy budget, but want to know how you can become far more eco-friendly AND save your organisation REAL money?

This is where an Energy Consultant can help.

An experienced, credible consultant can analyse how much energy you are using, to make you more cost efficient. They can help you reduce wastage, improve your impact on the environment and save money.

But when engaging with an energy consultant, what kind of questions should you be asking to make sure you find the right partner for your organisation’s needs? And, when the project is underway what kind of preparation is needed from you to make sure it runs smoothly and in a straightforward manner?

UK Energy Watch have put together the following checklist to help guide you through the whole process, so you know exactly what should be delivered by the company you are employing, and what input is to be expected from yourself.

We need help funding the project- what do I need to know?

Here at UK Energy Watch, we help many organisations secure full funding that means no capital outlay is required and the project is ‘Cash-Positive’.

We work with several providers such as Salix Finance, The Condition Improvement Fund, NHS Improvement, and local funding pots/grants across the UK. Regardless of which funder you choose, there are some general things that you will need to prepare…

There you have it; everything you need to know to make sure your energy–efficiency project runs without hiccups.

We hope you find it useful but if you have any questions about the above, please do get in touch with us and we’d be more than happy to help.

Remember, mixing technology solutions is always going to greatly amplify your energy savings from a project. e.g. combining a new LED Lighting installation with a lighting control system.

Step back and look at the bigger picture- what exactly are you trying to accomplish? There’s a big distinction between a consultant who will own responsibility for the project and one who will only manage the process and escalate high-level issues to the client.

Communication is key, and as consultants, we endeavour to keep all clients fully informed throughout the process, whilst taking away all the hassle so you can focus on what you do best.
