Business Success Recognised Across Wiltshire
…in less than 12-months of trading we have experienced incredible growth, which has led to us winning “Best Start Up Business 2015” in the Enterprising Wiltshire Awards.…

The biggest concern for any new business is its ability to survive those first 12 to 24-months. It is well known that companies who do pass these milestones are usually around for the long term and can enjoy relative success.

We are delighted to say that we are one of these companies. Established in June 2014 we have had an impressive start to life and this is reflected in a forecasted turnover of £1.2million for 2015/2016. We currently have 4 members of staff and anticipate this figure will be doubled in the next 6-months.

Our focus is on helping businesses take a fresh look at their energy usage. By measuring various aspects of their energy consumption, implementing energy saving measures and monitoring ongoing consumption, energy usage can be optimised and ultimately substantial savings of between 30-50% can be made.

The Power of Energy Management Surveys

It can be very easy to talk about money saving initiatives through energy management but how can you actually show the saving before it evens exists?

At SMARTech energy we have devised our own SMART methodology to energy management and reduction, with the aim of aiding businesses to achieve total energy efficiency with minimum or no energy wastage or leakages.

We start with the basics of understanding WHERE, WHEN & HOW energy is being consumed. This then enables us to evaluate where energy is being wasted and most importantly by how much.

To achieve this we conduct an Energy Management Survey which includes stages one, two & three of our nine stage methodology.
