Small and medium-sized businesses in the UK could each be missing out on more than £5000 a year in energy savings, according to a survey by major energy supplier npower. Its findings follow a series of energy saving audits carried out at a cross-section of UK businesses.

These audits studied a company's average annual energy spend to reveal savings that could be made through measures such as voltage optimisation, better energy monitoring and lighting improvements. Now, npower has produced a series of infographics designed to illustrate potential energy savings.

"We know many small and medium-sized manufacturers are busy with day-to-day operation of their plant," said npower's Phil Scholes. "Our energy saving audits show just how many hidden savings there are within businesses and how these can add up to significant sums of money."
