E.ON has launched a new business energy audit service which is backed by a guarantee that the audits will identify energy saving measures that will be worth more than their initial cost.

The Business Energy Audits – aimed primarily at small and medium-sized businesses – interrogate the size and sector of a company, how they operate and where they use the most energy. They are carried out by specialist engineers either by telephone or through site visits.

During the audit, business owners can talk through what changes could be made; ranging from improving the building fabric, upgrading to more efficient equipment, or even changing working practices and staff behaviours to help lower their energy use and bills.

Engineers then produce a tailored report around potential upgrades and the trade-offs between implementation costs and the savings they could deliver, providing the information business owners need to make any follow-up investment decisions.

Iain Walker, head of business energy sales at E.ON, said: “Customers told us they often didn’t know where to turn when seeking help and advice in becoming more energy efficient, but they valued our experience and knowledge in helping them to use less energy and lower their bills.

“Our Business Energy Audits offer a complete tailored view of how business premises use energy and where savings and improvements might be made to improve efficiency. To back that up, we guarantee the audit will identify savings more than the cost of the audit or we’ll give customers their money back.”

Telephone audits are priced £180 per property and the property under audit must spend over £2,000 a year to qualify for the guarantee. For the on-site audit – priced £600 – the property must spend over £6,000 a year to qualify for the guarantee.
