Waste management firm, SWR, has teamed up with Energy Cost Advisors Ltd (ECA) to add a range of energy related services to its portfolio. SWR’s clients will have access to the expertise of one of the longest established independent energy advisors in the UK with services ranging from supply contract negotiation through to carbon and energy management and assistance in meeting carbon reduction legislation.
The deal expands the way in which SWR is able to save its customers money and manage and improve their sustainable credentials. ECA will also be offering SWR’s expertise in waste and recycling services to its customers.
Giles Whiteley, SWR’s CEO said: "This is a very logical move for both companies. Our customers have a similar profile and similar needs, and although our services are different, they share common cost reduction and sustainability goals for customers. Key to this partnership is that both firms are truly independent of the end solution; the two companies share this value, a fact that made this venture possible.
"Whilst we have been working on this for some time, the timing for our customers could not be better with the soaring cost of energy in the UK and an increased focus on overall resource efficiency. SWR is now in a position to help its customers mitigate the impact of increases and provide support in meeting carbon reduction targets."
Steve Silverwood, Director of Client Services at ECA commented: "We are delighted to be working with SWR and be able to offer our range of services to their client base and vice versa. The energy markets continue to be as volatile as ever with long term forecasts that prices could be 80% more than current levels by 2020 therefore highlighting the need to procure energy better than ever and use energy more efficiently than ever, our mantra has always been ‘the cheapest unit of energy is the one you don’t use’. We have over 27 years experience in the energy market place and our knowledge and expertise can benefit SWR’s client base in many areas, in addition their clients will benefit from exclusive consultancy rates only available through SWR."
