Carry out an energy audit

You’ll have to invest some time or money to conduct a full energy audit, but the results will be worth it in the long term.

Having an expert assess your premises in detail will throw up numerous areas for improvement.  And, at GAS, we believe in recommending a range of options of varying price.  There are low-cost quick-wins and there are capital expenditure projects which could take a healthy chunk out of your carbon footprint and your energy usage.

Energy AuditWe often bundle this valuable service in with our energy procurement package to ensure our customers get the most value from their deal than they can find anywhere else.

 “You will automatically be able to save a significant percentage from your usage by gaining insights from an audit.  An average amount could exceed 10%, but our best projects have reached as high as a 36%.”

“Monitoring and Targeting software can allow a business to see in minute detail where energy is being used and where it’s being wasted.  Simple management of this can be hugely beneficial and it tends to be one of the cost-effective methods we recommend after conducting an audit.”

Paul JohnsonGroup Financial Director

Paul Johnson is very much a home-grown talent.

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.


“I have witnessed phenomenal growth at the Group over the many years I’ve worked here and I’m looking forward to guiding the Group into an exciting new chapter.”

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.
