Retail Loan Provider
Cost-Cutting & Water Conservation Service


The Challenge

The client, a national high street loan provider and pawn broker, requested the support of Energy Renewals in reporting on their water usage and billing; across their portfolio of over 500 stores. The purpose of this was to identify opportunities for saving water and cutting costs and providing estate management of a growing water portfolio.


The Solution

Energy Renewals gathered water usage and cost data from the client’s most recent up-to-date bills and datasheets. This data was then used to undertake an analysis, which entailed a comprehensive review of data for each work site.

The aim of the review was to identify the following:

  • Strategies for reducing water usage
  • Means of using available tariffs to cut usage costs
  • Billing errors needing to be rectified


The Outcome

Energy Renewals identified a number of areas for significant savings in the client’s store operations. These savings included billing errors and excessive usage on site.

To date, Energy Renewals has achieved for the client an annual saving year-on-year of £64,800, and has managed to obtain refunds totalling £137,000.

There is also potential for a further annual saving of £28,000 and refunds of £15,000 a figure that is growing month-on-month with the Water Invoice Validation Service.

National High Street Chain of Estate Agents
Water Usage and Billing


The Challenge

The client, a National high street estate agent, requested the support of Energy Renewals in reporting on their water usage and billing; across their portfolio of branches. The purpose of this was to identify opportunities for reducing water consumption, and a cost recovery service. Additional ongoing invoice validation services were subsequently identified as part of the project.


The Solution

Water usage and cost data, mainly taken from most recent up to date bills and client datasheets, were provided to Energy Renewals.

This data was then used to undertake a desktop analysis approach, which entailed a comprehensive review of data for each site.

The aim of the review was to identify where: water usage could be reduced; costs could be cut by utilising available tariffs; and billing errors rectified.


The Outcome

Energy Renewals identified a number of significant savings for the client in their stores.

Dennis had a menace of a time increasing energy supplies for his restaurant

Business Owner Zafer Iqbal commented “Energy Renewals have done a fantastic job in project managing the site works, allowing me to concentrate on my business whilst they took care of my businesses’ energy”

 

Brief

Restricted by existing infrastructure with insufficient energy supply and with a growing business, Dennis’s required an increase in on site capacity to supply the three storey property consisting of newly refurbished apartments and a new food retail outlet.

This required managing multiple infrastructure providers on behalf of meter operators, energy suppliers, site works operators and liaising with the local council authorities, led to the appointment of the Energy Renewals expert site works team to undertake the complex project on behalf of Dennis’s restaurant.

 

Key Achievements

  • The business was proving so popular that they urgently needed to expand the operation but were restricted with limited energy supply coming back to the building.
  • Electricity supply was single phase and they required a 30 Kva three phase supply.
  • There was no gas supply at all to the property.
  • A new clean gas supply was installed to allow essential energy efficient catering equipment to be included in the new business plans.
  • The electricity supply was successfully updated from single to three phase.
  • Dennis’s restaurant successfully completed the business expansion and opened on schedule within the 16 weeks schedule.

Bookmakers
Water Invoice Validation Service


The Challenge

An existing national client, a popular high street bookmaker with over 70 sites across the UK was looking for a solution to validating their water invoices as they were concerned that they may be paying too much for their water bills. Additional concerns were raised where they felt that were missing invoices for certain sites and had additional invoices for sites they didn’t occupy.

The Solution

The client sent copies of bills for each site to Catalyst. From these copies, water usage and cost data was analysed with view to undertaking rectification of any historical billing errors. This was undertaken for each of the 70 sites.

The aim of the review was to identify areas of future savings including:

  • Strategies for reducing water usage
  • Means of using available tariffs to cut usage costs

The Outcome

A full ongoing monthly validation service now provides peace of mind, knowing that they are paying the correct amount every month. Additional reporting capabilities make it easy to set and adjust budget expectations year on year.

Following a full historical audit on the bills received from the client, Catalyst Identified refunds to the value of £18,599 plus further annual savings of £36,214.
