To add further complexity, some of these charges may depend on the time of day or even the time of year that the energy was used.
Reduced energy intensity and maintaining competitive advantage
Whilst a move to smarter and more flexible energy procurement offers significant savings for many manufacturers, this only addresses the unit rate of energy. The cost of energy is a function of that unit rate multiplied by consumption and it is consumption that drives the environmental sustainability agenda and is the element of the cost equation that you have greatest control over.
