The case for energy optimisation has never been stronger

Posted by SSE Business Energy on 30/11/17 11:08

Author: Kevin Greenhorn, Managing Director of SSE Enterprise Energy Solutions

It’s an exciting time for businesses and for the energy market. There’s a momentum of change happening across businesses of all sizes and it’s fascinating to watch. The conversation is that energy should no longer be seen as just an outgoing cost; it’s an asset and opportunity. The direction of opinion seems to be that forward-thinking businesses increasingly understand that energy is a revenue generating asset that benefits the whole organisation – both in how it functions and how it is perceived. At SSE, we strongly believe in this too.

Posted by SSE Business Energy on 10/10/17 10:49

Amber McEwen, Head of Marketing at SSE Business Energy, talks about the disruption facing large businesses – and it isn’t the 'Uberisation' of traditional industries.

Last week I was up in Scotland meeting with Alan Young, SSE’s Managing Director of Corporate Affairs, discussing what the greatest disruption facing big businesses today is. Maybe surprisingly we do not think it is simply the 'Uberisation' of traditional industries.

What a difference the real living wage makes

Posted by SSE Business Energy on 25/04/17 14:01

Fairness is difficult to argue with as a concept. The pursuit of fairness galvanises politicians across the spectrum and is a concept that resonates even with the smallest children. There are times when an idea captures the imagination of the majority, its simplicity encapsulating the notion of fairness perfectly. The real Living Wage of £8.45 does exactly that and has the support of over 780 employers in Scotland and 3,000+ throughout the UK.

Rachel McEwen, the Director of Sustainability for SSE and the chair of the Scottish Business Leadership group for the Living Wage, representing SSE is proud the initiative in Scotland celebrates its 3rd anniversary this April, after funding from the Scottish Government to employ staff. The leadership group also includes employers like Standard life and KPMG , as well as SMEs like Utopia Computers and Voca; the universities of Caledonia and Strathclyde; Dundee Council; and the Third Sector with SCVO and Young Scot.

Accredited Living Wage employers have helped nearly 25,000 people get a pay rise in Scotland.
