Nearly half of energy managers questioned in a new survey have said their companies will spend more over the next 12 months on energy saving measures than the previous year. Lighting upgrades (70 per cent), culture change initiatives (63 per cent) and voltage optimisation (42 per cent) are the measures being prioritised by energy managers.

With the Government increasingly focused on Energy Demand Reduction, the survey, by voltage optimisation company powerPerfector and sustainability services provider Carbon Credentials, looked to ascertain which energy saving measures were prioritised by organisations and gauge the level of investment over the coming year.

"DECC suggests legislation alone could add 36 per cent to energy bills by 2020," said powerPerfector's Wayne Muncaster. "One example of this impact is the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, which will rise by a third next year. This makes energy costs no longer incidental, but critical. Unless organisations mitigate these costs they risk becoming less competitive." For more information visit
