Steps to help you save
We've partnered with companies to bring you services that could help you to understand your energy usage, reduce your costs and take action to save money and cut carbon.
1 - Reduce costs with Voltage Optimisation
Check whether the technology can help you save
Emissis, a new Royal Bank partner, manufactures and installs Voltage Optimisation (VO) technology that could help businesses reduce costs and emissions. A lot of us pay for energy we don’t need. Most electrical devices work best at 220 volts, but the National Grid supplies 242 volts on average to all users. For some appliances, those extra volts are wasted – and may cost us money. VO technology adjusts the incoming voltage so that you could pay less for what you use.
Interested? You can get a free site survey from Emissis, who guarantee any potential voltage reduction specified in your energy savings quote. You’ll also get a 10% discount on VO hardware if you click below.
Emissis T&Cs apply. Any content you view or services you access on the partner webpages are provided by a third party. Saving guarantees are provided by Emissis after a site survey and are not backed by NatWest Group. Energy savings and CO2 data provided by Emissis, November 2023.

Understand your usage and find ways to save with Perse
We've partnered with Perse to identify solutions that can help you to reduce costs and carbon in your business. Perse will provide tailored recommendations to get you on your reduction journey with a range of options including free things that could save you £100s.
3 - Explore and install solar
Get estimates of solar savings and installation costs
To help you with this, we've partnered with Absolar*. Their technology captures the solar potential of your premises remotely and gives you an estimate of savings and return on investment. With a report typically returned to you within 48 hours, you'll quickly get a view of your options and access a directory of certified suppliers in your area.
*Absolar's remote solution is available to most businesses, but it works best if you have control over decisions on your site.
