Energy Costs Will Rise, Taking Action Now will Increase Bottom Line

26th, September 2013

UK businesses will almost certainly face higher than inflation energy prices over the coming years.  As reported in the DECC’s December 2012 Quarterly Prices Survey, the UK non-domestic energy prices increased by 9% during the 12 months to December 2012.

When combined with the Climate Change Levy and forthcoming Energy Bill these rises will start to attract board level attention as the link between carbon legislation and energy prices will become directly related.

It is estimated that the DECC’s Policy impacts on prices will add up to 36% to energy bills over the next 7 to 10 years. The cost of energy associated with data centres will no longer be incidental, they will become business critical.

Taking action now to reduce data centre energy usage will increase bottom line profit, shareholder value and help protect your business from the future ‘energy cost’ landscape.
