UK energy price rises are taking a 'breather', making this an ideal time to invest in sustainability measures. That's the conclusion drawn by low carbon strategy specialist Lorien Engineering Solution, following release of its latest Lorien Energy Index (LEI) that shows a recent slowing down in energy price increases.

"Now is the time to embed sustainability, energy and resilience into strategic planning whilst the delay from the upward trend in energy costs has given the sector a breather," said sustainability consultant Tom Jordan. "The precautionary principle taught in environmental economics is that 'doing nothing' is a gamble. Once the energy markets have rebalanced, it is expected that the overall costs of energy from fossil fuels will realign with the upward trend previously seen."

The LEI monitors the overall cost of energy for business users. It helps companies to make sense of current energy consumption and look at ways of making savings in the future through energy efficiency and using low carbon and renewable technologies to boost energy security.
