Energy costs have risen significantly in recent years and the plethora of ways energy is used in pubs and bars has likewise exploded.  Most pubs and bars only keep a watching brief on their energy bills but this is leading to many missing out on cost savings and carbon reductions.  

Where Do Pubs Use Energy?

A typical bar or pub uses energy in a range of different areas. Usage can vary considerably depending on location, services provided and whether energy efficiency measures have been put in place.  Below is a typical breakdown of where energy is used in a pub with catering facilities and a non-seasonal customer base.

Heating

Heating generally accounts for most of the energy consumption in pubs and bars.  But, it does not always account for the majority of costs. Why? Gas used for heating is typically three time cheaper than electricity.  So if you use a lot of electricity for lighting this could be where most of your energy costs go.

Lighting

The types of lighting and how it is used in pubs and bars can have an enormous effect on your energy bills.  A cheap light bulb costing less than £1 or €1, might end up costing you ten times that per year.  So the first thing to consider is can you get an LED or CFL bulb for a reasonable price.
