Ultimate Checklist for Hiring an Energy Consultant

Are you a Business Manager, Financial Director or Facilities/Site Manager, responsible for your establishment’s energy?

Perhaps you oversee the energy bills and overall budget, but want to know how you can become  more efficient, reducing consumption and saving money?

This is where an Energy Consultant can help.

An experienced, credible consultant analyses how much energy you are using, identifying wastage, and solutions to improve your impact on the environment.

But when engaging with an energy consultant, what kind of questions should you be asking to make sure you find the right partner for your organisation’s needs? And, when the project is underway what kind of preparation is needed from you to make sure it runs smoothly and in a straightforward manner?

We’ve put together the following checklist to help guide you through the whole process, so you know exactly what should be delivered by the company you are employing, and what input is to be expected from yourself.

What should I ask an energy consultant in the initial contact?

What should a consultant ask you?

What kind of things will I need to prepare?

We need help funding the project- what do I need to know?

We help many organisations secure funding that means no capital outlay is required.

We work with various grant and funding across the UK. Regardless of which funding option is right for you, there are some general things that you will need to prepare…

There you have it; everything you need to know to make sure your energy–efficiency project runs without hiccups.

We hope you find it useful but if you have any questions about the above, please do get in touch with us and we’d be more than happy to help.

Remember, mixing technology solutions is always going to greatly amplify your energy savings from a project. e.g. combining a new LED Lighting installation with a lighting control system.

Step back and look at the bigger picture- what exactly are you trying to accomplish? There’s a big distinction between a consultant who will own responsibility for the project and one who will only manage the process and escalate high-level issues to the client.

Communication is key, and as consultants, we endeavour to keep all clients fully informed throughout the process, whilst taking away all the hassle so you can focus on what you do best.
