Businesses located within commercial property are looking to make savings from installing new green technology.
According to British Eco Energy, firms naturally become interested as a means of cutting costs and often go ahead once they have seen their competitors install equipment.
Managing director Andrew Moore said the recession is forcing people to consider their costs more.
“They’re having to reduce their energy bills, and they seem to be addressing their carbon footprint issues and seem to be [putting forward the ‘green’ image] positively towards their customers.”
Wind power is proving popular, he noted. This he attributed to the poor weather recently and UK’s climate.
Other firms are quick to follow suit, he noted competitors “are seeing the wind turbine going up on their sites and feel: ‘we need to keep up with our competitors and we should have one as well'”.
The Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform has found renewable energy accounted for just 4.9 per cent of UK electricity sales in 2006.
"I must also comment that the service received from DeVono has been exemplary. In what I have experienced to be the unpleasant world of estate agency it has been a real joy to work with you. You have been driven, proactive, reliable and extremely quick and responsive. The fact that you are pleasant to work with has been a bonus. Working with DeVono has been one of the very best customer experiences of my business career."
"I was impressed by the service I received from DeVono when it came to finding new offices. They considerably reduced the stress, hassle and time that this process would have otherwise involved and we are chuffed with the end result."
"We have used DeVono as our property advisers for a number of years. Their greatest strengths lie in their ability to understand quickly what is required and to grasp all the relevant issues. They regularly ‘think outside the box’ and offer creative solutions to complex problems. We have no hesitation in recommending them."
"We really appreciated your help. We got the result we wanted at a speed we could never have achieved ourselves and we're very pleased that we engaged you."
"Our second time using DeVono and again I was very impressed with the team - friendly, efficient and extremely commercial and honest. They understood the brief and worked hard to deliver the right property for our needs. In what was an unfamiliar area to me, they provided guidance on key issues and negotiated very good terms, highly recommendable."
