WME are committed to supporting the public sector in achieving their respective environmental goals. Our "Use Cleaner, Use Less" campaign will help support our public sector customers on their journey to "net-zero" carbon through purchasing cleaner energy, and using less energy. 

This helpful page will provide practical ways in which you can review and reduce energy consumption within your buildings, as well as being a central "hub" for useful advice, tips, resources and websites that will support you to "Use Less".

It will be particularly helpful for those with little, or no, "in-house" energy or sustainability expertise.


"Using Cleaner" and "Using Less"

Examples of what we already deliver under these two workstreams are set out below, however these are always under review and we will have some exciting additions over the coming year.

Use Cleaner

  • Provision of 100% renewable gas and electricity
  • Supporting self-generation projects
  • Sleeving energy into our contract
  • Setup of PPA arrangements
  • Energy Storage solutions E.g. Batteries
  • Demand Side Response
  • EV Charging

See how WME supported Swindon Borough Council to offset a proportion of their corporate energy consumption from a solar asset based in Swindon through an innovative solar offset arrangement.

Use Less

  • Educating and embedding behaviour change
  • Provision and understanding of data
  • Provision of resources to help you manage energy consumption
  • Energy Efficiencies

As well as helping to achieve "net-zero", using less energy will help combat rising energy costs that we have seen over the last 12 months.
