“Don’t be a victim of the CRC” was the message from npower at the Energy Event.
A seminar organised by the company stressed the value of an integrated strategy in dealing with the twin pressures of energy costs and carbon reduction.
The need to adhere to the CRC – and the costs involved – mean that more than ever, businesses need to create better long-term planning.
Craig Spencer of npower’s optimisation desk said the energy market is changing. “A key development is the decoupling of oil and gas prices,” he said, and urged delegates to “focus on Asian markets”, as they will affect UK energy prices in coming months.
Npower Head of Business Energy Services Dave Lewis said a continuous cycle of monitoring and managing energy was vital. “Don’t be a victim of the CRC, make an integrated strategy,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, Npower is opening a state-of-the-art office at Rainton Bridge in Sunderland today.
Buying the building became the biggest property deal in the region and it will be opened by npower chief executive Volker Beckers.
The office has a gym, personal trainer, and deli-bar and will bring together 2,000 staff from across the north east.
