Energy Saving for Businesses

Cutting the amount of energy used by your business will reduce costs, boost profits and help provide funds for reinvestment within your business.

There is a great deal of advice available from different organisations, including:

Carbon Trust

Energy Saving Trust

Saving Energy Advice Service

The Carbon Trust has produced a free guide aimed at school premises or business managers. It contains an overview of opportunities to reduce energy costs in business premises, and provides links to more detailed technical information from the Carbon Trust.

At West Devon Borough Council, we have reduced our energy usage by installing solar panels on the roof of our headquarters at Kilworthy Park. We have also introduced agile working for staff, which cuts down on mileage and commuting, and we have installed free-to-use electric vehicle charging points for our staff to use.
