The latest edition of Energy Efficiency Trends released by EEVS Insight and Bloomberg NEF, has reported that non-domestic energy efficiency spending declined in Q3 2018. As a result, spending returned to the “normal range” after a large increase in the three months from April – June. Published on Tuesday 4 December, it said that spending remained “strong” at around £250,000 per project. Lighting efficiency projects retained the lead position for uptake, followed by lighting controls and boiler controls/optimisation, with Building Energy Management Systems seeing a sharp decline. Additionally, the most common reason for lack of efficiency uptake during Q3 was businesses already having future projects planned, with lack of resources and affordable finance, uncertainty over financial benefits and higher priorities elsewhere all listed as the joint next most common reasons.
