Australians spend more on energy than many of us realise. In 2012 we spent $9 billion on air-conditioning-related energy bills and nearly $5 billion on refrigeration-related energy costs. We're also spending tens of billions of dollars on fuel products.
After staff costs, energy is one of the main expenses for SMEs. But it's a cost that can be reduced. It's a guaranteed way to improve the profitability and resilience of a business.
