RGF in Practice – Next Step
How does it work?

Revovling-Green-Fund-updatedgraph

1. Unlocking the upfront investment

Energy spend is a ‘distressed purchase’, i.e. it’s not your core business and you wouldn’t buy energy if you had any other choice. In many cases, being environmentally conscious loses out when competing with capital projects affecting ‘core’ business activities. 

An RGF will fund these measures, unlocking the investment and the energy savings without the need to use precious capital. Any funds accumulated will be transferred into the RGF immediately, creating a cash fund enabling energy saving measures to be delivered.

2. Sourcing the best energy supply to suit your requirements

We will source the best price and product for your energy requirement which, in some cases, will result in an immediate reduction in utility costs.

3. Minimising the Risk

Utility Team is here to support all aspects of the RGF, from initial project identification right through to (and beyond) commissioning of a delivered project. 

We work with carefully chosen suppliers of innovative energy reduction technologies to ensure you get the best possible equipment and value for money.

Scope

Utility Team will work with you to understand what you want to achieve from the RGF.

Some of the key considerations include what your aim is, whether that is cost/carbon saving ambitions, delivering essential asset upgrades and future proofing your site or investing in on-site generation, monitoring and targeting software.

We'll review what your timelines are, long or short-term. What the readiness of your product is, it may not have been identified, it may need work or it may be ready for investment. We also assess what level of funding is required.
