Competitive Fixed Price Energy Contracts

We have strategic relationship partnerships in place which allow us to work a lot closer and build strong relationships with several of our preferred energy suppliers.

Reduced Energy Spend

Following the installation of the energy efficient equipment, there can be significant savings in energy costs. Simply put, the less energy you use, the less money you spend!

Plan with confidence, safe in the knowledge that your consumption and energy usage is fully under control, you're on a competitive energy contract and your equipment is protected.

Products

Lighting can be one of the biggest costs to a business and is generally the best place to start to gain energy reductions and cost. LED lighting can reduce energy save by up to 90%. However, its safer to say on average you will see around a 60-70% reduction against standard florescent or halogen. We offer a tailored solution on all LED products and can offer specialist lighting for any requirements.

Heating is the most important elements in maintaining a healthy workplace. The Carbon Reduction Team can offer the most efficient systems which are designed based around your on-site heating and hot water demands. Replacing a heating system for a business can be a serious expense and costs can vary dramatically also across installation companies. Our solution takes away any capital-outlay so you can heave peace of mind that you can replace any aging systems and also save money on your overall energy costs at the same time. We offer a full range of products from gas boilers to renewable heating systems.

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is beginning to make an impact in the industry. Older versions of this technology were inefficient and unreliable, however the newer technology is beginning to get industry recognition as a reliable way of cutting energy costs. CHP combines both the generation of thermal heat and electricity by burning a fuel source such as gas or LPG. There are also biomass and biogas versions of CHP on the market which can make this product a very environmentally friendly solution.

Battery storage is a growing market within the energy industry. Businesses are realising that generating, storing and then using your own energy when required is by far the most cost-effective way to reduce long term energy spend. As we rely more and more on an aging energy grid the necessity to invest in alternative ways of using our energy is essential.

We can offer a tailored solution that will incorporate energy generation into your business. From solar panels to wind turbines, we can supply and install these measures with no capital outlay.

The supply of water into businesses is an ever-growing cost. In recent years further de-regulation means it’s now easier to manage your waters costs and monitor how your costs are calculated. The use of rainwater harvesting methods are a growing trend within energy savvy businesses. Specially designed systems now mean that this method of cost reduction can be implemented within most businesses.

He joined Great Annual Savings Group in its infancy, fresh from a youth career as a professional footballer with Hartlepool United.  He quickly established a reputation within the business and aced all required accountancy qualifications in the space of four years to become the Group’s Management Accountant.

Several successful projects later, Paul was promoted to Head of Finance.  When the former FD left GAS, he took on the mantle of the business’ most senior finance professional; boasting a string of incredible achievements all under the age of 30.

Interesting fact:

Paul made his professional debut for Hartlepool United against Bournemouth in the Football League.  Some say Danny Ings still resides in his pocket to this day.

Adam BrownGroup Marketing Manager

A graduate of Sunderland University in 2011 in Sports Journalism, Adam spent the first few months of his career working as a Journalist before deciding he would enjoy applying his skills on the other side of the fence.

Adam says
"Journalism just wasn’t for me. Like all students when they graduate, I felt obliged to pursue a career in my chosen area of study, before quickly realising I had a diverse skill set that was better suited to the Communications and PR side of things. I gained a wide range of knowledge of writing and the media through my time at University and in the industry, so it was a smooth transition.

In December 2015, Adam leapt at the opportunity to join Great Annual Savings, tasked with the responsibility of setting up and establishing the Marketing Department.  In his short time with the company, he has expanded the team to seven members, with additional scope to grow further.  He has also implemented a successful PR strategy which has seen the company develop its brand reputation in a very competitive market.

Judith BennisonGroup HR Director

Judith was part of the team who initially set up Great Annual Savings in 2012, she brings with her an abundance of senior management experience, managing the HR/Resourcing functions in numerous fast growing FTSE250 companies including De La Rue International PLC, Blacks Leisure Group PLC and most recently G4S PLC. Judith has played a pivotal role in helping move the business forward with our ambitious growth plans and her impact has seen our head count grow significantly year on year with significant plans in place to manage and lead the continued growth going forward.

Judith says:

"Businesses who are pro-active continually look at managing their costs effectively, those who wait until a recession hits, are reactive and often too late. We want companies to be pro-active and take the pain away by saving costs now, letting GAS do the fully managed cost solution just makes good business sense for any company, whatever the size or industry. Our business ethos is something I truly believe in and want every company to benefit from our help and support, working collaboratively together is a great way to build long term relationships.”

Bradley GrovesChief Executive & Founder

Having founded GAS in 2012, Brad has overseen the company’s huge growth in a short space of time. Starting from modest surroundings in South Shields, rapid progress has seen the business move to its current office in Seaham, which is being expanded across the business park to create an 80,000 square foot GAS campus, featuring one of the finest headquarters buildings outside of London and Manchester.

The majority of Brad’s career has been spent on the boards of FTSE companies, at board level in the private sector and in turnaround private equity.  He was Group MD of Caudwell Group and worked on its sale in 2006 for £1.5 billion.

Brad says:

"Certain businesses we’ve worked with have made six-figure savings over their contract terms. We cover the widest range of business variable costs in the market in one place.  When we get involved with a company, it allows them to focus on their core business.  The extra time we allow them to spend on their strategies can often prove as valuable as the cash we save them."
