Smarter Choices is a government-funded initiative to provide a radically simplified process for SMEs to identify and implement energy saving initiatives in their premises. The straightforward service has been designed to save time and reduce costs to meet the needs of SMEs which may not have energy management expertise or dedicated resources available.
The expert advice from accredited consultants is completely impartial, ensuring any recommendations will provide the best energy savings and be financially viable.
The funding available during the development of Smarter Choices will provide free, no obligation energy assessments to identify and quantify energy saving potential. Any clients wishing to proceed with an installation will then be able to take up free handholding support and advice throughout the project as well as free energy monitoring equipment, post-installation. It can also help clients to access specialist financing options, not previously available to most SMEs.

- Independent advice: the most appropriate solution from accredited and impartial assessors, consultants and contractors
- Cost savings: financing options to guarantee savings will be made without upfront investment
