A good place to begin is by looking at how much energy similar-sized companies tend to consume, and to give you a helping hand, we've compiled a useful list of average business energy consumption figures.
|Business size by employees||Business size by revenue||Average business electricity consumption||Average business gas consumption|
|0 - 10||£0 - £1,400,000||5,000 kWh - 15,000 kWh||5,000 kWh - 15,000 kWh|
|11 - 50||£1,400,000 - £7,000,000||15,000 kWh - 25,000 kWh||15,000 kWh - 30,000 kWh|
|51 - 250||£7,000,000 - £36,000,000||30,000 kWh - 50,000 kWh||30,000 kWh - 65,000 kWh|
|251 +||£36,000,000 +||50,000 kWh +||65,000 kWh +|
If your business is spending more than others of the same size, don't worry - just think of it as an indication that savings may be able to be made going forward.
You should also bear in mind that each business is unique in its consumption habits, and the nature of your business’s operations may mean that it simply needs to consume more energy than others - so think of the figures above as a guide rather than hard and fast limits.
The good news is that there are usually a number of ways in which businesses can reduce the figures on their gas and electricity consumption meters.
