Stopping the Profit Drain from Higher Energy Costs
The costs of fuel and power cut significantly into the bottom line of many smaller firms. Big capital projects for energy conservation can be hard to justify in terms of payback, especially for smaller and mid-size companies with thin profit margins.

Thisreport outlines a number of practical measures to tighten management structures and build energy awareness for greater energy efficiency, resulting in improved competitiveness.
