We’re beyond delighted with the work of Control Energy Costs, the refunds and savings are significant and they pay for our membership many times over!

- Alpha Anodizing & Finishing - Adam Calloway (Director) -

Liam happened to be one of the first people we spoke to over a coffee and breakfast at the event. He mentioned he already worked with a good number of members and gave a few examples of success stories. Based on the fact we use a considerable amount of electricity in our operation I thought it would be worthwhile inviting him to meet us for a further chat.

You think you do a good job at the time of sorting supply contracts, the fact is Liam highlighted there were other ways to reduce costs and also luckily for us this resulted in a number of retrospective refunds too.

- Burnett's Manufacturing -Alan Murphy (MD) -

We knew each other through our membership of Made in the Midlands and were approached by Liam Conway of CEC to see if they could carry out an initial audit to prove the value they could provide over an energy broker. It seemed like a good idea so we agreed and we’re delighted with the £10,000 savings within two months of working together.

- C.Brandauer & Co - Rowan Crozier (MD) -

We are bombarded with companies wanting to talk to us about energy, usually it doesn’t ever reach my door, but after I met with Liam and understood how CEC differ to an energy broker I thought there was nothing to lose. We have worked with them for nearly 3 years now!

Services Control Energy Costs Provide

Energy Audit and Procurement Cost Services

Energy procurement

As one of the UK’s foremost energy consultancies, we’ll negotiate the best possible deal for you, taking into consideration variables such as your consumption and demand profile and any specific business needs.

Forensic cost recovery (FCR)

You shouldn’t pay for something you haven’t used. If you do get charged incorrectly for electricity, gas or water, we can get that money back for you.

Infrastructure and project works (including car charging ports, solar, LED, battery storage and more)

If you have a specific requirement, we can help you to deliver that. Our CEC solutions team can provide help and support with almost any energy or water related project.

Compliance and reporting (including SECR, ESOS)

The energy market and its governance in the UK continues to become ever more complex. We offer advice, guidance and support on how you can remain compliant, through the provision of timely advice.
