A free energy audit, carried out remotely by analysing your bills.

A free energy audit, carried out remotely by analysing your bills. Supported by the Sport & Active Recreation Alliance the aim is to drive down energy costs for National Governing Bodies and Sports Clubs. The free energy health check will ensure that you are paying the right rates and to highlight the most cost effective alternatives on the market. It will also identify if you are eligible to claim any VAT back.

The free energy audit consists of;

  • The provision of complete understanding of the current energy portfolio, contract end dates, correct VAT and renewal energy prices is necessary, without obligation
  • A free and no obligation full recommendation for future energy procurement, including sources rates and an AMR savings evaluation if applicable


Reducing energy cost is not purely about price but invoicing and consumption are key to these costs. The ever volatile market is fast making consumption reduction the most effective and sustainable method to reduce cost, with price having little impact. Many organisations have sourced the most competitive rates but are still paying over the odds due to incorrect invoicing, estimated billing and incorrect profiling.
