DERBY, England, June 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Utility Exchange, the business energy comparison site, say they have seen a dramatic uplift in businesses comparing energy prices online but that businesses could do more to reduce their energy costs.
Research by Siemens UK (The Green League Report) found that 79% of businesses say they take energy management seriously, although this figure is only 69% among energy managers. The report also found that 70% of organisations see reducing business energy costs as the main reason for undertaking energy management, while 22% of energy managers admitted they didn't know what their business spent on energy annually.
Founder of Utility Exchange Online, Conway Standing, said "While we have experienced an increase in the number of small and medium sized businesses comparing energy prices online it's still surprising how many businesses don't look at reducing their energy costs by comparing energy prices."
Many commentators suggest that high energy prices are set to stay and therefore it makes sense for businesses to actively seek to not only make their business more energy efficient but to ensure they are on the most appropriate deal.
Using an energy comparison site can help organisations to reduce energy costs. Reducing energy bills is just one factor involved in energy management but it can take up a lot of time. Utility Exchange also has dedicated account managers to not only compare prices but to manage the whole switchover process.
CEO at utility-exchange.co.uk, Adam White, said "One way of reducing business energy costs is to compare business electricity prices and business gas prices. We have a quick and easy 3 step process to compare the market and ensure you get the right deal for your business. A dedicated account manager will handle the switchover process for you".
