LEVERAGING THE BUSINESS CASE FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Delivering energy efficiency upgrades that meet internal return on investment metrics require a unique and uncommon skill set. Our Managing Director (Ryan Dillon) has a Masters in Applied Finance and has also overseen the identification of $10M in energy savings through industry leading projects. Websters Group is also actively involved in co-funding projects through it’s investment fund. This helps us practice what we preach and further prove the business case for energy efficiency.

Integration of finance and energy efficiency is a core element in many of our propriety models and services including:

  • Financial modelling of energy efficiency upgrades
  • Feasibility studies
  • Energy budgeting
  • Business case development
  • Scenario and sensitivity analysis (future energy pricing)
  • Industry benchmarking
