We've Got the Power - Mitchells & Butlers Win Energy Award

Mitchells & Butlers has recently been awarded with the Energy Efficiency Accreditation.

The Accreditation is an Industry Recognised Certification, awarded by The Carbon Trust and The Institute of Energy to those Companies/Institutes that have demonstrated that, through innovation, investment and training, they have reduced energy consumption and are minimising energy wastage.

Carl Wassell, Mitchells & Butlers' Energy Purchasing Manager, who applied and submitted the evidence and case studies on behalf of M and B comments, "The Electricity Metering Project formed the main part of the evidence submission. The assessors were impressed with M and B's investment in the metering technology and the sheer scale of the metering project. Energy savings now being achieved (and easily proven with the level of accurate usage information that M and B now have), along with M and B's investment in training now being provided by the team of Energy Risk Managers, also helped M and B towards the accreditation."

The company is now trialling an extension to the Metering Project to incorporate both gas and water.

Carl has now been short-listed as one of seven contenders vying for the title of 'Energy Manager of the Year 2006', which will be judged, following a 45 minute presentation in London, in May 2006.
