Carbon Trust launches energy advice guide

New guidance on how small and medium-sized businesses can reduce energy bills has been published by the Carbon Trust.

The organisation has launched a video tutorial aimed at helping small firms cut down on their energy costs by as much as 20 per cent.

Advice on how companies can make changes to their operations, coupled with suggestions for effective heating, lighting and ventilation, is included in the new video.

In addition, the tutorial makes recommendations for energy efficient IT management and reducing energy out of office hours.

Hugh Jones, director of solutions at the Carbon Trust, said: "Many firms tried to cut costs to the bone at the end of last year.

"But many could save further, significant amounts of cash, without affecting their service or production levels, by tackling energy efficiency."

The new guidance has been published to help businesses cope with rising energy prices, which industry regulator Ofgem expects to increase by almost two-thirds over the next seven years.
