RUMM Energy Management Solutions UK and systems are committed to the environment with a passionate qualified group of professionals bringing you the latest in technology through their innovative systems and solutions allowing companies to reduce energy and save money. The effects of this are far reaching and go a long way towards helping to save the planet.

RUMM are constantly expanding their team with new employees to assist with the increasing demand with Business energy reduction.

I found an article on their website I decided to share, showing just how committed RUMM are as the leaders in energy management services.


RUMM to boost staffing levels by more than 50% to meet growing demand this year

We are engaged in a major expansion of our business.  After 10 years hard work it’s great to become an overnight success!  One of the key reasons is the increase in the market brought about by ESOS – Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme – an EU energy initiative that requires member states to introduce a mandatory programme of energy audits for large enterprises.

The Carbon Trust has indicated that to date, too few lead assessors have been accredited to carry out these audits, which could lead to a bottleneck as the compliance deadline of December 2015 approaches.

RUMM has been carrying out this kind of audit for large companies for many years and all of RUMM’s energy account managers are ESOS recognised lead assessors.

RUMM already employs 26 staff, and aims to increase staffing levels to 40 to meet demand.

Dr Steve Lloyd, RUMM co-founder and Chairman, says, “These will be sustainable, knowledge-based jobs, and will include graduate engineers, scientists, installation technicians as well as other support staff, however, our intention is that this level of staffing will continue permanently, and not just for the duration of the ESOS scheme, as we build relationships with customers throughout the UK and they understand the cash saving benefits of lowering energy consumption an on-going basis.”

RUMM currently works with customers across the industrial and commercial sectors to make significant savings in energy costs and carbon.  For example, Amtico, Zodiac Group, Welsh Water, the Celtic Manor Resort, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Yuasa Batteries etc.  Our clients have saved more than £40m in energy costs.

“Our ultimate target is to make energy savings of £1bn,” confirms Dr Lloyd. “The ESOS programme will place us well on the road to achieving that.”

RUMM co-founder and Director of Sales Jamie Watkins adds, “We are already geared up to take on the challenge presented by ESOS both in terms of expertise and innovative technologies. Our innovative technologies are also allowing us to partner with some of the major energy providers in the marketplace in the UK & Europe. Now we just need extra staff to deliver it all, as well as building up long-term partnerships with major enterprises throughout the UK.  Large consumers, those with energy bills over £250k per annum – benefit hugely from the substantial energy savings we can make for them by installing the appropriate technical infrastructure and supplying specialist resource.”

Energy Management Software from RUMM

RUMM your energy consumption specialists are the company to speak to if you require assistance with assisting to Reduce Business Energy Consumption.

RUMM business energy management has been shortlisted for the ‘Technology’ category in the Insider Made in Wales Awards 2014.

The finals take place on October 23, at the Mercure Holland House Hotel, and speakers include Dr Lyn Evans, project leader at CERN.

The recognition of being shortlisted under the technology category is particularly satisfying for us as we have launched the latest version of our Energy Management Software IBASS5 this year which has been so well received.

Dr Russell Payne (Ops Director) who is responsible for overseeing RUMM’s energy saving technology developments commented:

“RUMM’s technologies have been designed to have the functionality required by our own energy managers to save energy for our customers. Through continual improvements demanded by our energy managers our energy saving technologies have become stand-alone tools that we believe surpass anything else in the market.”

Don’t leave your energy saving measures half finished

There are numerous actions a business can take to reduce energy costs and lower carbon emissions. Energy management Services plays a key role but it’s also important not to overlook the other end of the process – the steps you take before that precious energy even reaches you; that is, the deal you sign up to and the way you manage energy purchasing.

To do this thoroughly and professionally requires a fully integrated energy strategy that includes the energy purchasing cycle.

Unfortunately, this is often overlooked – sometimes because such measures as incorporating energy management products are more tangible, but often because buying energy cost-effectively is complicated.

There are numerous variables, enormous volatility in prices and an endless array of contract options. But while this may be daunting, getting it right can deliver major savings and significant competitive advantages.

The three aspects of buying gas and electricity that make them different from most other products or services you purchase are the timing of the purchase, your company’s appetite for risk and the skills and knowledge needed to get it right.

Timing is crucial because market prices fluctuate quickly and massively. Some changes are foreseeable, such as seasonal demand, while others, such as unrest in the Middle East, can sometimes be totally unforeseen and could send energy prices soaring in hours.

Consequently, you must clearly understand markets and the forces driving them and constantly monitor them to both take advantage of opportunities as they arise and avoid being caught flat-footed.

Different businesses have different appetites for risk and this has a profound influence on energy purchasing. Most contracts are either “fixed term” or “flexible”, the latter giving a degree of control over prices and potentially make savings – but at greater risk.

To find a contract with the right level of risk for your business you need to know the options available.

Skills and knowledge
Finally, if you are responsible for energy procurement you must be familiar with the myriad of different opportunities provided by energy suppliers and negotiate with them to get the best deals.

In all these things, familiarity, experience and industry knowledge are crucial. Energy purchasing has become an increasingly specialist full-time role and an industry of experts has grown up to operate between energy suppliers and business users. Companies like UES Energy constantly monitor market fluctuations and the full spectrum of suppliers’ contracts to help clients find the best options.

Premium airline seating manufacturer Contour Aerospace (now part of Zodiac Aerospace Group), were one company who saw the value in working with energy professionals and following great results from RUMM Energy Management Software on their energy management, turned to UES Energy for advice for their energy purchasing.

Finance Director Alison Baker said: “(UES Energy) approach to energy procurement focuses on avoiding unnecessary cost and their advice on the timing of contract placement is backed up with detailed market intelligence. Their quality of service is reassuring and a stark difference to our previous energy broker.”

Mettis Aerospace and RUMM

RUMM leaders in Energy management solutions UK have secured some very large clients recently such as Mettis Aerospace who are based in Redditch, West Midlands. This is a great achievement for RUMM as they were up against stiff competition in the Energy Management Services.

  • An extensive sub-metering installation of gas, electricity, compressed air, water and effluent
  • An Automatic Monitoring and Targeting system (aM&T) utilising RUMM’s own energy savings technology of Pulse and energy management saving software IBASS
  • Advanced data analysis to identify areas for savings

RUMM engages with ISO50001


There is a growing and Energy management Sustainability interest from companies in the international energy management standard ISO50001.

RUMM customers will be in an advanced position to secure this recognition should they wish.  Business has felt the benefit of the family of Quality, Environment Management, as well as Health and Safety standards.  The systemised approach to energy saving methods and energy saving technology is something that RUMM has developed to achieve significant savings in partnership with its customers.

The ISO50001 approach will, if adopted correctly, save energy and carbon for companies across many sectors but particularly in the manufacturing sector which is where primarily operates.

RUMM energy management Wales gave a joint presentation at the Wales Quality Centre on the ISO 50001 standard, particularly on the energy savings that could be realised in the manufacturing sector through energy saving technologies and the significance of  Low Carbon Behaviour in terms of the energy savings that companies could secure.
