If you are looking to save your company money and you think that your organisation’s
current energy contract seems expensive, you may wish to carry out a review. However,
this might be easier said than done if your business has multiple sites and suppliers,
as well as complex pricing structures, which can make it difficult to identify and
obtain the best energy deals.

you may be able to claim back through bill validation. Environmental taxes, such
as the Renewables Obligation and the Climate Change Levy, on top of network and
operating costs all contribute towards your final energy bill. And some of you might
not be aware that you can negotiate these down.
