Energy-wise firms save £200,000

An energy saving scheme in the North has cut business bills by more than £200,000, it is claimed.

Efficient lighting, refrigeration and heat recovery devices were used to slash costs, energy company Energia said.

First launched in 2005, Belfast International Airport and Curley's supermarkets are among companies embracing the new technology.

Energia chief operating officer Tom Gillen said: "There is now a great opportunity for businesses to cut their overheads significantly through the use of grants which will cover at least 20pc of the investment."

The energy efficiency scheme for commercial premises was introduced by the North's energy regulator and assisted by the Energy Saving Trust.

Energy efficient lighting was first installed in 2005 with variable speed drives and heat recovery devices were brought in later.
