Business festival to help firms with energy crisis

Assured Energy (part of leading UK Net Zero Consultancy - Consultus International Group) are supporting the 2022 Leicester Business Festival.


Running from 7-18 November, the Leicester Business Festival is an annual fortnight of free business events put on by local companies just like Assured Energy, with the aim of helping, informing and educating other businesses. As well as being festival supporters Assured Energy will be delivering an event for businesses dedicated to navigating the energy crisis.


Hiren Kanabar, General Manager of Assured Energy, said: “Every day we support businesses with their energy problems and provide strategic solutions. We know businesses need reassurance and real insights into navigating their way through the energy crisis. These are uncertain times but we have expertise that can help and support environmental targets too.


“With the festival being in November this will be a critical time for businesses. We want to be as visible and supportive as possible so the festival offers this opportunity. We will be there for businesses so they can come along and find more about energy reduction projects, green energy and offsets programmes as well as gain advice from our experts on procuring water, gas and electricity.”
