Hiring and follow-up.
The company is in contact with EVOLUTIA in order to reduce its energy cost. This company wants to make sure that the gas and electricity supply contracting offers they have on the table to choose from are the best on the market. They need to be advised on that subject, both in terms of price and about the formulas applied by marketers (contractual situation).
They also don’t know the regulations of the electric and gas sectors (invoicing of supplies).
In a preliminary study, a high potential for improvement has been detected and would be carried out through an Energy Efficiency Audit and its implementation is agreed upon based on the results obtained from the hiring improvements.
This also solves the requirement imposed by Royal Decree 56/2016 (which implies mandatory Energy Efficiency Audit for large companies).
