In the previous post in our ‘Overcoming Rising Energy Costs’ series, we explored the ins and outs of Triads and the implications they have for businesses.
Now, we want to help you find simple and effective ways to avoid these costs.
How Can I Avoid Triads?
Avoiding Triads is difficult, and some consider it close to impossible.
However, by shifting or reducing your energy usage during these undetermined periods, you could eventually save thousands of pounds on your energy bill. Overall, if you manage to implement concrete ways of reducing or ridding the amount of energy consumed by your business during the Triad periods, you may be able to avoid TNUoS charges for the financial year. This will help you to create and showcase new software for the future which will save not only time but also money.
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to implement, or even begin to plan, ways of optimising energy usage without a proper platform with tools to help a business do so.
Our Energy monitoring offering has been built precisely for companies looking to go greener by optimising their energy consumption patterns. This is key to reducing the risk of incurring Triad costs on top of a business’s already high energy bills.
The Hark Platform increases operational efficiency by offering a configurable, real-time monitoring dashboard where energy readings are sent to the cloud, every minute of every hour of every day.
Companies, such as facilities management (FM) businesses, are already clued onto our incredible service because of the energy and costs it can help to save. Teams are able to observe where energy is being drained most and schedule downtime in these areas, when possible. This optimises and potentially reduces a business’s consumption of power.
By utilising our key IoT cloud-based tech, you can potentially lower your businesses future Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS) charges.
Alternative Innovations to Combat Triads
Other innovative ways to combat Triads include using onsite battery reserves in conjunction with the Hark Platform. Check out our talks with an expert in this field; Bruntwood Director of Energy and Environment, Bev Taylor!
By charging these during non-Triad periods, companies are potentially able to switch to their own source of energy during high-demand energy periods and remain off-the-grid during any Triad periods. This too has the possibility of lowering or considerably dropping energy usage charges coming from Triads. This process still requires a platform like ours to monitor where energy consumption is highest and implement downtime while the battery is charging.
If your business plans to successfully implement these Triad-evading methods, it’s a win-win for saving money and going green.
