Multi-site UK property developer engages NUS to implement holistic energy and sustainability program

During program implementation, NUS identified £16,000 annual savings while constructing the client's energy database and validating past invoices and materially improved the client's energy procurement strategy, reducing both costs and carbon emissions.

A UK multi-site commercial property investment and development company engaged NUS Consulting Group to provide comprehensive energy management and sustainability (EMS) services to support their business requirements and sustainability reporting.

As part of its engagement, NUS constructed a complete and accurate energy database for the client, including historic energy data. The client's stakeholders were provided access to this data via NUS's cloud-based energy information (EiS) system – NUSdirect. With NUSdirect, the client now efficiently manages its energy usage for its multi-tenant buildings and creates customized sustainability and carbon report. 

While constructing the database, NUS validated and analysed the client's invoices for accuracy as well as savings opportunities. As a result of this process, NUS identified annual savings in excess of £16,000 per annum. 

After reviewing the client's existing energy supply contracts, NUS recommended the client participate in NUS's flexible, risk-managed electricity, and natural gas portfolios. These products provided the client access to wholesale energy pricing and a dedicated professional market's team monitoring the markets and executing strategic purchases on behalf of the portfolio. In addition, NUS's Optimal Green electricity portfolio provided the client with 100% Carbon Trust certified renewable energy with no premium applied. NUS aligned both commodity purchase structures to have concurrent expiry dates to provide the client with maximum flexibility.

The client was extremely pleased by the smooth and efficient onboarding of the services and NUS's support levels – it issued NUS a written letter of recommendation.
