Press release June 13, 2012 Business

Working smarter is the key to success in the modern world. The companies that get ahead are the ones that have the nous not just to spot opportunities but to take them.


Utility Renewals are offering smart meters to some of their business customers. It does't take a genius to know that business energy bills are increasing and it's worth investing into any device that can save you energy.

What is a smart meter?

A smart meter is a new kind of meter that communicates electronically with your business energy supplier. It means that they no longer have to make site visits to read your meter. They record the amount of power that has been used over fifteen and thirty minute intervals. Spikes in use can be identified and targeted by the canny business user to reduce gas and electricity consumption.

Any business can now look at this meter and know exactly how much energy they are using at all times of the day. By analysing this data they can pinpoint where business energy is being wasted and make the affected areas more efficient.  Usage is reduced leading to lower bills, leading to more profit.

The Carbon Trust estimates that a smart meter can reduce a company’s energy consumption by 10%. Some companies could save more. In these tough times anything that brings down the expenditure column by at least a tenth has to be investigated.

How smart meters work?

As you would expect a smart meter is quite a complex gizmo. They use wireless technology to receive and then transmit company electricity usage to cell relays on power lines which then deliver them to the business energy supplier.

However, a bright business person will be more interested in not so much how it works but how it can work for them.

This is why Utility Renewals, a leading business energy broker in the UK is offering *free smart meters to certain customers so that businesses can see how they can help them to reduce their energy bills.Utility Renewals smart Meters
