Summary:

Vodafone is one of the world's leading mobile communications providers with almost 444 million customers internationally and around 19.5 million in the UK.  It has thousands of sites in the UK and is a major energy user. The sites include offices, retail stores, data centres, cell towers and network sites.  JRP were appointed to provide Vodafone with a range of outsourcing and energy management services to improve financial and energy efficiency throughout their UK estate.

Results:

The outsourcing support alone identified guaranteed savings for Vodafone of £8m over 3 years through a programme of gain share on behavioural projects and improved controls management.  An estimated  5 - 7.5% energy savings is anticipated from improved energy efficiency.  100% of delegates who completed the Be Energy eLearning programme would recommend it to others and 98% have said that it has increased their energy knowledge.

“JRP are a very good partner. They are very knowledgeable, diligent and creative. They don’t just dip in and dip out, they want to carry on working and contribute to deliver an outcome.”  Paul Garland, Energy Manager, Vodafone.
