    "Inprova Energy provided us with expertise we simply did not have in-house. The final report, praised by our Directors, showcased more than fourteen recommendations which we have already made progress on completing. It is early days but I am confident that the business is already saving energy and this situation can only improve."

    "Since working with Inprova Energy, I have found their team to be highly experienced in the energy market and a great support to Rainham Steel. They have spent time getting to know our business and provide ongoing support throughout the duration of our contract, offering advice and answering any of our energy related queries. I particularly like that they keep industry jargon to the minimum, making the contract negotiations process straightforward whilst focussing on achieving competitive rates for our electricity and gas.

    More recently we have begun working with Inprova Energy on meeting the requirements of new ESOS auditing legislation. As a trusted advisor to Rainham Steel and a government approved ESOS assessor, I have every confidence that Inprova Energy will continue to provide the excellent level of service that we have received to date."

    "We had little expertise in-house to manage the implementation of an energy audit to comply with ESOS, and with limited resource we turned to our energy consultant, Inprova Energy, for support. The audit provided the team with peace of mind that we complied with the legislation. "
