The continuous increase in energy prices means that manufacturers must now focus on the most effective way of managing their energy usage and ultimately reducing costs.
According to a joint survey by manufacturer’s organisation EEF and energy provider Npower, the UK’s manufacturers are increasing their investment in energy management towards a sustainable energy strategy. The survey reveals that investment in energy management is not without significant barriers, including the perception of extensive payback periods and businesses prioritising other investments.
Manufacturing companies are now beginning to address inefficiencies in their buildings and processes to try and alleviate rising costs that directly affect the bottom line. The survey showed that around one in five manufacturers are now looking to suppliers for advice on energy savings and efficiency.
