2021 is expected to be a big year for climate action; with COP 26 in November and the UK Government’s target to achieve carbon net-zero by 2050 an ever-present message, there is pressure on organisations to ensure they are becoming consciously sustainable and on the pathway to decarbonisation.
As the UK’s leading energy and sustainability management consultancy, over 35 years of business, TEAM has been a vanguard of change, growing and developing their services to better meet the needs of their customers.
In the last year TEAM has developed their suite of energy consultancy services to meet the carbon reduction demands, and economic and social challenges of the current climate, helping organisations to transform their energy and sustainability management, and achieve greater operational efficiencies.
TEAM’s new suite of enterprise-wide consultancy services includes:
Behaviour Change Programmes for Sustainable Business
Organisations are under increasing pressure to have a sustainability strategy and reduce their carbon emissions. To help organisations create a company-wide culture of sustainable thinking, TEAM has introduced CPD accredited Behaviour Change Programmes. Delivered by registered Energy Conscious Organisation (EnCO) consultants, the business’ Behaviour Change Programmes inspire change within an organisation. Through the adoption of sustainable behaviours, these services help employees become more conscious of their workplace habits, so their organisations can achieve their sustainability targets, helping them stand out from competitors and achieve long-term cost savings.
Tenant Billing Services
As the only UK supplier to offer end-to-end tenant billing, including outsourced billing and collections, innovative tenant billing software and a suite of supporting consultancy services; it is TEAM’s aim to help organisations transform the way they recharge their tenants.
Outsourced Tenant Billing Management Service
In 2020, TEAM reinvented professional tenant billing. Supported by their innovative software and comprehensive Energy Bureau service, the business has transformed the way organisations bill their tenants.
Organisations with large multi-let-multi-tenant portfolios could benefit from changing the way they recharge their tenants through TEAM’s Tenant Billing Management Service. Delivering accurate and efficient estate and billing management, the business’ service relieves organisations of the time it takes to create and validate bills, collect payment, escalate debt, manage accounts and reporting, and keep track and take control of consumption with ease.
Tenant Billing Consultancy Services
Through TEAM’s experience and expertise in helping organisations recharge tenants, they have created their Tenant Billing Consultancy services to support organisations in ensuring the efficiency of their meters, billing methodology, business processes and Heat Network Notification regulation compliance. TEAM’s expert impartial guidance and support can make tendering for a meter vendor, creating a Metering Business Case and achieving successful tenant billing achievable with ease.
MOP DC DA Contract Selection
Organisations can gain a better understanding of their consumption and reduce overheads by using accurate and timely energy data, through TEAM’s new Meter Operator (MOP), Data Collector (DC) Data Aggregator (DA) Contract Selection service. The business’ vendor selection service can find the right MOP DC DA provider for an organisation by scoping the needs of their energy portfolio and assessing suitable vendors; saving them valuable resource and helping them to find the right MOP DC DA provider.
Available Supply Capacity
Through TEAM’s Available Supply Capacity (ASC) service, organisations can benefit from an assessment of their ASC to ensure their energy capacity is set optimally, avoiding penalties or over-paying. The company’s energy experts will review an organisation’s contracts and secure the kVA costs that are appropriate. Through this assessment, organisations can reduce their utility overheads and make substantial savings from outdated or inappropriate kVA allocation charges. By ensuring they are using a suitable amount of kVA for their operations, organisations can meet their Corporate Social Responsibility by freeing up kVA for the community to be allocated to other businesses or regeneration projects.
Commercial Energy Audits and Surveys
In addition to the brand-new services the business is now offering, TEAM has enhanced their Commercial Energy Audits and Surveys service. Organisations looking to reduce carbon emissions and make cost savings will benefit from a tailored assessment of their organisation’s energy efficiency, providing them with a better understanding of their building’s energy performance. Bespoke optimisation recommendations offer valuable carbon reductions insights to make energy savings and efficiencies throughout their business.
Commenting on the expansion of their Consultancy services, Timothy Holman, Head of Operations said:
“Compliance and certification services have always been the cornerstone of energy management. The challenges of planning for a Net Zero future, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, have put energy and sustainability professionals under great pressure to meet ambitious environmental targets against a background of potentially unpredictable service demands.
Over 35 years of business, TEAM has paved the way as leaders of energy management, adapting our services to keep up with industry pace of change to meet customer’s needs.
The growth of our consultancy provides sophisticated solutions to many of the demands of modern energy management, against the challenges of Net Zero and the pandemic, helping organisations to innovate and meet targets, while relieving resource and making cost savings.”
The next natural step on the journey to delivering more dynamic and strategic solutions for effective energy and sustainability management, throughout 2021 TEAM will be continuing to add to their consultancy, launching a suite of new services.
