British Gas Business’ new virtual energy audit service could be the key to cutting emissions and finding elusive energy savings.

That’s the suggestion from the energy giant’s Head of Business Energy Efficiency, Liam Burlinson, and Teo Littera, Delivery & Implementation Manager, who spoke to future Net Zero News Editor Jonny Bairstow about the new technology and what it can offer customers.

The web-based audits, which aim to identify energy-saving opportunities that businesses may have missed, are carried out online using cameras – this gives the virtual audits the benefit of being socially distanced, affordable and environmentally-friendly, due to negating the need for travel.

A tailored energy review is then produced for the customer, depending on their requirements, in a way designed to take as much effort and complexity out of the process as possible.

Mr Burlinson said: “We believe it could be one of the ways in which we can help SMEs start to pinpoint the types of solutions that could help them use energy more efficiently, reduce the cost of energy to their business and also put them on that path towards lower carbon emissions.”

British Gas Business emphasised the nature of the virtual tool is particularly valuable in the current climate, as many businesses are currently looking for simple ways to cut their overheads, escape expensive inefficiencies and reduce environmental impacts.
