Demand Side Management
Many energy supply contracts include premiums and penalties if the consumers’ pattern of consumption varies. M&C can support the optimisation of your consumption profile and of any on-site generation or operating flexibility, while providing demand forecasting and take-or-pay management.
It is said that the cheapest energy is the energy that isn’t used, but the secret to reducing consumption is investing in the correct projects at the correct time. All too often, organisations focus on the wrong projects or have unrealistic reduction targets given the projects available. M&C provides a comprehensive process for valuing projects, constantly adjusting our valuations as the markets change. This ensures that resources and capital are effectively focused and consistent with the corporate objective.
Energy efficiency is more than a commercial activity, a corporate agenda or a social responsibility. It is a state of mind. M&C can support the root and branch change needed, helping shape and direct organisational culture, from auditing the sustainability of operations and providing comprehensive staff training in the vital areas of your organisation, to providing the project management expertise key to increasing efficiency at every available opportunity.
Once a project has been identified and appraised, it is easy to lose momentum as the commercial plan is transformed into an engineering reality. M&C can take a project from concept to implementation: project managing contractors, managing new connections, adding automatic meter-reading and, finally, measuring the performance of the asset, all of which ensures that results match your expectations.
