Energia is latest Neighbourhood Retailer Awards sponsor

Energia has become the latest leading company to announce its sponsorship of the Neighbourhood Retailer Awards 2016.

The energy specialist has offices in Dublin, Galway, Cork, Belfast and Omagh, and has been added to the list of top companies showing their support for this year’s prestigious awards.

Energia is now official sponsor of the highly-competitive Pharmacy of the Year category for 2016.

There are still opportunities to be part of this year’s awards, and further details can be found by contacting the Neighbourhood Retailer Awards team on 028 9045 7457.

Energia’s sponsorship announcement comes in the wake of the competitive energy provider’s briefing to Mayo businesses on the latest ways to cut their energy costs.

The briefings held with Westport Chamber and LEO, Mayo are designed to educate businesses about energy efficiency, allowing them to further reduce their energy costs.

The purpose of the training is to help companies develop and implement their own energy management systems, helping them to cut their energy bills and CO2 emissions by up to 20 per cent.

Businesses that attended included Poplar Linens, Westport, Lally’s Pharmacy, O’Connell’s Cash and Carry, Westport Woods Hotel, AIA Loss Assessors and Kidmol Enterprises.

Cormac Mannion, Energy Services Manager, Energia said: “Energia has developed considerable expertise in the area of energy efficiency training. We have helped to boost many businesses’ competitiveness by giving them the knowledge and tools that help them save money by reducing their energy consumption.

“There are also valuable environmental benefits – by reducing their usage by 10 per cent or more, each company will significantly reduce their annual CO2 emissions.

“We also support businesses through innovative energy programmes like Energia’s ‘Cash for Kilowatts’ scheme that provides grant funding to companies for energy efficiency projects. It means that any company carrying out an energy efficiency project can  apply for grant funding based on the amount of energy they save. This scheme is open to all businesses, whether or not they are customers of Energia.

“As well as benefitting from the generous grants, businesses will also make very significant ongoing savings through the energy efficiency projects. These include LED and high-efficiency lighting, which  can typically reduce your lighting costs by up to 75 per cent.”

Energia has a 26 per cent market share of the Irish business electricity and gas market supplying the energy needs of over 60,000 business customers.
