Why Smarter Choices?

Reducing energy use is great for business as well as the environment; helping to save cost, enhance brand reputation and reduce carbon footprint. There is a significant opportunity in premises where energy costs are relatively high for areas such as lighting, heating and cooling. However, many small and medium businesses are unsure how to start an energy saving project, are limited on time and have concerns around the business case.

Smarter Choices has been specifically developed for SMEs to provide a radically simplified service to identify and take advantage of the savings available through energy efficiency improvements.
