Businesses should avoid “blasé” attitudes to energy and think outside the box, according to Gazprom Energy’s Head of Power.
With energy bills increasing “year on year” leaving customers more concerned about reducing their costs, he suggests firms can be more proactive.
Steve Armitage told ELN in an interview: “Customers can do things. We’re all a little bit blasé with energy. I’ve been working in the energy industry for a number of years and it’s amazing how blasé people can get. Really when the prices start to increase, that’s when they realise, actually yes there is something I can do.”
This means being less bound by traditional ways of working: “I can turn off a machine, I can open up my factory at different times, because we’ve all got to start thinking differently – that may be using energy at different times which may be cheaper.”
