Partnerships and memberships. And collaborate

Forging strong relationships

In keeping with our core values, we work to cultivate strong relationships with suppliers, partners and membership groups which, in turn, helps our teams provide good quality advice to our clients for any energy or water related project.

Made in the Midlands and Made in Yorkshire

We are a patron of the Made in the Midlands and Made in Yorkshire member groups. Control Energy Costs has worked with these groups to give local businesses the opportunity to join forces and benefit from our service range on a more competitive scale by setting up the Made In Group Energy Club.

It would be fair to say that Control Energy Costs have brought considerable benefit to our members in providing sound advice and delivering tangible savings. As a patron of the Made in Group incorporating Made In the Midlands and Made in Yorkshire they promised to bring their considerable knowledge of the energy market and provide that “extra mile” attitude that we expect of ourselves. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Control Energy Costs as well as the value in our association with them.

Surface Engineering Association (SEA)

We are members of SEA, which was founded in 1887. They represent all sectors of the industry and look after their members' interests at all times. We support SEA members with energy solutions to mitigate the implications of the current high energy prices.

I have worked with Control Energy Costs for many years now and they have presented at a number of seminars and webinars for us, helping our members understand the complex area of energy. We know they support a good number of our members and the feedback is always of the highest order.

Black Country Chamber of Commerce

Control Energy Costs has an exclusive arrangement with the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, an area where our organisation is strongly embedded. The Chamber's members benefit from our commitment, our core and supplementary service and consultative advice.

“Whilst our members have previously had access to national providers via the British Chambers of Commerce, we felt it was the right time to appoint an organisation that understood the local fabric of the area. The region has a higher than average concentration of industrial businesses and these companies use a lot of energy, many not fully understanding how the system works and how you can save money by managing it more effectively. Control Energy Costs was the ideal choice as they already work heavily in the Black Country and have presence here. Feedback has been fantastic in terms of the service and results they’ve already delivered.”
