Celebrating 10 Years of Energy Efficiency and Low Carbon Solutions

Chippenham-based energy management and reduction specialist SMARTech energy is celebrating 10 years in business. Founder and MD Stuart Pearce launched the company with the ambitious mission to transform how businesses and organisations across the UK achieve their sustainability, financial and environmental goals.

Energy management and reduction

Over the past decade, the company has made significant strides in energy efficiency and carbon reduction, driven by its flagship programme Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS). This is a shared savings, energy management programme and has achieved energy reduction targets of 15% to 33% across various commercial sectors; from manufacturing to hotel and leisure sites and offers a cost-effective energy management solution for businesses.

MD Stuart Pearce states “I have enormous pride in the company’s achievements over the past 10 years. This is a significant milestone for the company, and the efficiency gains, which my team at SMARTech energy has delivered, will have a lasting long-term impact for our clients in their bid to tackle climate change and improve financial sustainability through reduced energy consumption, costs and carbon”.

Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS)

SMARTech energy’s client base now includes prominent brands such as Apetito, Retrac, Herman Miller and the Activate Learning Education Trust (ALET), all of which have seen substantial energy savings. The EEaaS programme stands out by eliminating financial and operating barriers for organisations. It offers a no-capital expenditure option, finance-leasing and risk-free solution, enabling clients to receive a percentage of the savings achieved. Utilising a comprehensive array of more than 34 energy-saving and energy-generating technologies, the programme optimises site performance and operating conditions.

This strategic approach not only addresses the challenges of capital, experience and resource within an organisation, but also adapts to the evolving energy cost environment, providing financial flexibility and comprehensive energy-saving solutions. The results are evident within a few short months, significantly aiding businesses in reducing energy consumption, costs, and carbon emissions.

Strong growth for the company

Demand for integrated energy management and reduction solutions has served as SMARTech energy’s driver for success.  The company has achieved growth of a 27% increase in turnover.  Additionally, the investment into the EEaaS programme in order to support our customers, has doubled the company’s assets in the form of energy-saving technology which has been installed on customer sites.

Stuart continues “Through EEaaS, SMARTech energy has effectively set a new standard for the cost-effective delivery of an energy management programme to meet the energy reduction targets across commercial sectors.  The outputs we have achieved for our customers are remarkable and these energy saving gains will have a lasting, long-term impact on our clients’ cost efficiency, energy security and environmental goals.”

Team celebration

To celebrate this milestone, the SMARTech energy team engaged in a team-building fun day at Team Pursuits in Lacock, Wiltshire, reinforcing the collaborative spirit that has driven the company’s success.

As SMARTech energy commemorates this decade of achievements, it continues to empower UK industries to build an energy-efficient, low-carbon future, cementing its role as a leading specialist in energy management and reduction.

Verified Energy Savings of 28% for Hotel Group

Verified Energy Savings of 28% for Hotel Group

28% verified Energy Savings for Hotel Group

SMARTech energy’s team of specialist energy consultants have helped a major hotel chain to save 28% in energy consumption at one of their leading sites in Buckinghamshire.

With Energy Efficiency-as-a-Service, the hotel has had access to state-of-the-art energy efficient technology without any upfront costs.

An initial site survey and installation of energy monitoring technology identified the following technologies across the hotel for upgrades.

  • LED lighting upgrade

Energy consumption reduced by 79%

  • Gas boiler system upgrade

Energy consumption reduced by 40%

  • Thermal insulation jacket

Energy consumption reduced by 10%

Measurement and Verification of Electricity and Gas Energy Data

The energy savings are measured and verified using the International Performance Measurement Verification Protocol (IPMVP).

This protocol sets out how measurement and verification (M&V) is to be conducted and includes baselines, site data and the utility calculations used to show true savings.

The following graphs represent a reporting period from June 2021 to May 2022.

The top line on the graph is the adjusted baseline energy usage of kWhs used if upgrades to low-carbon technologies were not carried out.

The bottom line on the graph is the actual measured energy usage on utility bills following technology upgrades.

Verified Combined Energy Savings of 28%

Upgrades of gas and electricity technologies to low-carbon solutions have proven energy savings of 28% and with no upfront costs, finance leasing or risk, Energy Efficiency-as-a-Service is the economical way to make change.

The energy savings pay for the installation, maintenance and management of the low carbon technologies; allowing the hotel group to enjoy the benefits of an energy reduction and sustainability programme.

EEaaS – The fully funded energy reduction programme

EEaaS is a fully funded, shared savings energy reduction programme.  All energy efficiency measures are installed with no upfront costs, lease or risk to the organisation; enabling education settings to reduce energy consumption, costs and carbon emissions easily.

The ‘as a service’ option enables The Trust to easily integrate an energy and sustainability programme which delivers huge benefits – whilst demonstrating their strong commitment to innovation, sustainability and best practice towards environmental policy.

Energy Management Makes Good Business Sense

Managing Director of SMARTech energy Stuart Pearce said “Its about making energy efficiency simple.  With EEaaS, the energy technologies are seen as a service, rather than a purchase.  Instead of purchasing the energy saving technology, sites can implement projects without capital expenditure, lease or risk and it’s this approach to energy efficiency which is helping organisations to make clear, defined business decisions on energy management – essential for improved profitability and sustainability”.

Stuart continues “Energy management makes good business sense & with energy bills soaring, its a real wake up call for companies to look at how to reduce their energy consumption. We’re seeing an unprecedented increase in successful projects moving forward – especially through our Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service model”.
