Business Energy Waste
UK businesses are wasting nearly 50% of their electricity powering equipment when their staff have left for the day. That is to say businesses are spending up to £1 in every £2 of their electricity bills outside working hours. These major business energy waste issues are highlighted below.
This data comes from the latest figures of a research conducted by British Gas. The energy supplier collected data from over 6,000 smart meters which showed that 46 per cent of business electricity use happens outside of the traditional business hours of 8am-6pm.
