Our Approach to Energy Savings & Sustainability
The Ecosave Way
At Ecosave, our aim is to help our clients reduce energy costs, achieve energy savings, save money and save resources. Our ongoing mission is to deliver quality, independent energy conservation and sustainability management services that save our clients money, achieve their sustainability goals and above all, helps to reduce our collective carbon footprint and impact on the environment. We have developed a unique performance based service model that maximises energy savings and minimises risks through guaranteed savings, fixed price proposals and end to end service.
At Ecosave, we start with an introductory phone consultation to identify your objectives and challenges regarding energy consumption, efficiency and sustainability targets.
In this free 30 minute consultation, one of our energy consultants will discuss your situation and absorb as much information as possible about your organisation’s energy profile.
After this initial briefing, our team will build a recommendation set of Ecosave services relevant to your needs and objectives.
Depending on the nature of your requirements, our recommendation set may include any one or more of the following
- On-site visit(s) for Ecosave to conduct a comprehensive Energy Efficiency Opportunity Assessment.
- Ecosave to design a fixed price proposal for an efficiency upgrade retrofit project with guaranteed energy savings.
- Proposal for a data driven energy management service – Ecosave Watch – including installation of energy analytics hardware and software for remote monitoring and monthly management reporting for continuous efficiency optimisation.
- Bill Management & Validation services to streamline administration and verify energy fees and charges on utility bills.
- Independent Measurement & Verification services for assurance of results.
