£200k annual cost savings

The site had numerous energy saving initiatives but the main performance change was from building in automatic control of equipment.  This has achieved more than a 30% reduction in typical weekend and night-time consumption.  Being able to see the delivered savings through Carbon Desktop reporting has also given the team the hard data needed to verify these savings and their achievement.

Misconceptions of using Carbon Desktop

Will I need to buy new meters to use Carbon Desktop?

Not necessarily, Carbon Desktop can successfully be used with existing meters and this approach is regularly taken by our customers to avoid significant unnecessary hardware costs.

Will I need to spend a lot of time on Carbon Desktop to get the benefits?

Carbon Desktop enables efficient energy monitoring with a number of automated tools to reduce the time required from you.

We also offer additional services to allow everything from a complete self-service platform to a fully managed program, with all options in between.

Many of our customers choose a selection of add-on services that ensure opportunities are identified and raised to to the site team without them having to spend a significant amount of time reviewing data themselves.

What is the ROI for sub-metering and Carbon Desktop and how do I create the business case?

If implemented correctly, any M&T system should be a net zero cost system. Where most programs fall short of this is down to the large upfront expense of new hardware and then insufficient time available to review data to identify opportunities to deliver savings.

A combination of our flexible data integration and modular add-on services means that the upfront cost is minimised while the savings impact is maximised, all in line with your available budget and existing team resource. Carbon Desktop succeeds where other systems fail.

Will setting up a reporting and reduction platform increase your business’s cost base?

Sustainable business is becoming the expectation of consumers and your supply chain partners.  This should facilitate business growth and success and should not be seen as a financial penalty. Reducing emissions and improving operational efficiency is here to stay and the data to drive this activity is critical.  Take action with tried and tested software, developed and updated over 16 years. At the same time, your business will reduce costs, carbon and waste.

Will the setup be time consuming and create factory down time?

Carbon Desktop’s turn-key mobilisation package mean all you need to do is simply say yes and we do the rest.

Once installed, system notifications save you considerable time by instantly notifying you of a performance drop which allows small issues to be caught quickly before they grow into major issues. Examples include leaks and performance degradation which, if caught early, can avoid significant additional cost and carbon.
