Energy help and support

Worried about rising energy costs?

Actions that could help with reducing costs

Energy Support: How can we help?

Hear Alison Wood (Programme Manager, Edinburgh Climate Change Institute) and our very own Relationship Manager, Callum Ferguson discuss how our package of free energy support tools could help businesses save money and become more energy efficient.

1 - Identify savings and actions 

Understand your usage and find ways to save with Perse

We've partnered with Perse to identify solutions that can help you to reduce costs and carbon in your business. Perse will provide tailored recommendations to get you on your reduction journey with a range of options including free things that could save you £1000s.

2 - Explore solar

Get estimates of solar savings and installation costs

To help you with this, we've partnered with D-CAT. Their technology captures the solar potential of your sites remotely and gives you an estimate of savings and return on investment. With a report, paid for by NatWest, typically returned to you within 60 seconds for the average UK business, you'll quickly get a view of your options.

3 - Reduce costs with Voltage Optimisation

Check whether the technology can help you save

Emissis, a new NatWest partner, manufactures and installs Voltage Optimisation (VO) technology that could help businesses reduce costs and emissions. A lot of us pay for energy we don’t need. Most electrical devices work best at 220 volts, but the National Grid supplies 242 volts on average to all users. For some appliances, those extra volts are wasted – and may cost us money. VO technology adjusts the incoming voltage so that you could pay less for what you use.

Interested? You can get a free site survey from Emissis, who guarantee any potential voltage reduction specified in your energy savings quote. You’ll also get a 10% discount on VO hardware if you click below.
