This time I’d like to talk about something quite close to my heart, energy saving in Norway. A land with one of the best life quality indices available, and they will tell you so! Without a doubt its a wealthy country and some have even said immune to financial crisis, as their life blood is oil, and lots of it. Only recently have ‘they’ found another huge oil field that guarantees more fuel for decades to come. But, yes you were waiting for it weren’t you, there is a ‘but’, energy prices just increase and increase. Given that in Norway most energy demand is electric and supplied by hydro electric stations and other ‘greener’ sources you would be forgiven to think prices would be stable, not so. In times past high levels of rainfall meant cheaper electricity, as more water meant more hydro-electric power. But it seams that everywhere energy providing companies are bent on raising their own profit margin, so when it comes to reducing energy bills we are somewhat left on our own.
The Enigin Eniscope offers a real solution, rather than tackle the problem by producing more energy it does something far more effective, it makes energy saving possible. Its logical really that when you have a valuable commodity the best thing to do is use it wisely and certainly not waste it. If you are a business owner or manager you no doubt spend a good deal of your time developing your business, to help it grow with the goal of maximizing profitability. Saving energy and hence money can be as effective as a 20% increase in turn over for many companies. Fitting Eniscope is the first step in tapping into these types of savings. Eniscope does more than merely measure your energy demand minute by minute, it also reveals where you are using most energy and where it is being wasted. This empowers you to deploy load-side energy saving devices to make your business more energy efficient. When your appliances run efficiently they also run more smoothly causing less ware and creating further savings in maintenance costs.
One of the common trends here in Norway is to purchase a more economic vehicle, because as fuel costs rise we invest in more efficient transportation, maybe you have found yourself tapping the fuel nozzle for the last few drops of diesel, why? Because we know it’s good economy, it only makes sense to do the same with our appliances that power our businesses. From my viewpoint supply and demand should of course influence fuel prices but it seems they are set to rise whatever the case. The best way to compete this is to become lean energy efficient businesses focused on making profit not just from growing but from not wasting our valuable energy.
