Implementing energy efficiency solutions

How do you implement energy audit recommendations? What energy efficiency tools help businesses? What are the most effective ways for manufacturers to reduce their energy use?

What we can do

Moving from strategy to implementation is one of the most challenging parts of any business endeavour. This is particularly true for energy efficiency strategies for manufacturers. We help companies move from energy reduction strategies to initiating actual improvements and projects across their sites.

From immediate, low-cost solutions, such as rectifying inefficient start-ups and shut downs utilising a specially developed tool (SWEEP), to the installation of renewable energy systems, EEF’s team of environmental experts provide advice, guidance and support. With an in-house team of energy, manufacturing and legal specialists, EEF can take care of all practicalities, such as writing specs for a lighting upgrade.

And with a stable of trusted partners, we’re able to match companies with the tools and services they need to get the job done painlessly and cost-effectively.
