Ground Control launches new energy management service

Biodiversity and land management business, Ground Control, has formally launched a new energy management service to help businesses on their sustainability journey.

Evolving from the company’s existing and highly successful electric vehicle (EV) charge point business, Ground Control Energy Services (GCES) will help clients take control of their energy, reduce bills, and enable fleet transitions.

GCES will initially offer four distinct services – either as an end-to-end full solution or as an independent service – all of which are aligned with the Royal Institute of British Architects.

They are:

  • Design and consultancy, offering bespoke solutions for clients’ largest carbon footprint
  • EV fleet transition, with nationwide solutions for commercial and domestic vehicles
  • Project management to improve EPC ratings of existing buildings and stay ahead of legislation
  • Energy asset maintenance to ensure savings and success beyond installation

Jason Knights, Managing Director, Ground Control commented: “Although the Government’s current net-zero target doesn’t come into effect until 2050, many businesses are already getting their house in order and beginning their transition to sustainability. Working with GCES allows companies to make rapid and substantial cuts to their energy bill while also delivering a long-term comparative advantage as the wider economy continues to migrate towards net-zero.”

Daniel Grix, Landscape, Design & Energy Director at Ground Control said: “Our new service will allow clients to better understand and take control of energy usage across all parts of their business along with taking action on their environmental commitments. This allows businesses to cut their energy bills and improve their EPC rating, protect the value of their existing buildings and structures and increase their rental value.”

Prior to today’s formal launch, GCSE has used its headquarters as a showcase of its capacity for creating and delivering energy solutions. It’s also successfully advised a number of companies on how best to decarbonise their businesses including a motorway services chain that saw a better-than expected-energy saving of 38 per cent and an ROI of 2.4 years, and a nation-wide health club that halved its energy costs and an estimated ROI of two years.

Knights added: “The science is clear – businesses have to respond to the climate emergency by cutting their energy usage, and Ground Control Energy Services can help them in their journey. The added benefit is that reducing your reliance on the grid and unlocking additional energy use makes good business sense.”
