Strategic Energy Consulting Ltd

Strategic Energy Consulting works with private and public sector clients to help prepare them for the financial, reputational and practical challenges of the existing and emerging environmental regulations and issues of energy security.

Our approach is based on a holistic end to end review of an organisation, which after the initial site survey & audit, enables us to identify energy efficiency and cost reduction projects which we rank in order of cost effectiveness with costed proposals that show payback periods. Depending on client circumstances and current funding rules, audits can be partly or fully funded. We can advise on this when discussing Client requirements. Where clients have standby generators or CHP plant on site there are possibilities to generate revenues from The National Grid by boosting supply into the grid when peak demand is outstripping supply.

Working in Partnership

Strategic Energy Consulting is working with LEC on resource efficiency for a large scale road waste recycling client and with Lancaster University Facilities and Infrastructure on Smart Grid Projects.
