Energy Efficiency is essential in helping both businesses and consumers to reduce their energy consumption. It is also central to helping the UK to deliver on the commitment it made by signing the Paris Agreement and to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

There are several measures that can help business and consumers to improve their energy efficiency which include fitting LED lightbulbs, utilising energy efficient heating and cooling systems, installing improved insulation and ensuring unused appliances are turned off.

Whilst increasing energy efficiency often requires an upfront capital investment, the costs are typically recovered in the form of reduced energy bills, making energy efficiency an attractive means for reducing carbon emissions.

A partner company of Low Carbon, UrbanVolt, has created an energy efficiency service called Light as a Service (LaaS®) in order to deliver energy efficiency projects for corporate clients at no capital cost.
