Never Underestimate the Cost of Power
This part of the talk looks at the difference between requested capacity and actual load take up for electricity usage across buildings. The talk identifies the significant gaps between requested capacity and actual consumption and what detrimental affects this has on your initial installation costs and ongoing energy costs.
The second part of the talk looks at the challenges associated with organising utility connections and infrastructure to new buildings and developments. We look at the procurement options available to the client and explain why it is imperative that competition should be encouraged in line with the open market and current legislation.
