Rising energy costs and ever-changing energy infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges facing organisations today.  With the progress being made with big data and digital initiatives we are moving towards a decentralised and decarbonised energy network.  Our raison d'etre is to achieve energy cost optimisation for all our clients, ensuring they have enough energy to run their business equipment and processes in an efficient and effective manner. 

We track the energy markets daily and provide our clients with regular updates so that they can benefit from the dips in the wholesale energy market whilst enjoying a quality service delivery in the process.

At eco3 Partnership, we recognise that integrating sound principles governing safety, business conduct, social, environmental and economic activities into our business practice is both good for our business and good for society.  Our main focus currently is providing both strategic and tactical guidance that helps companies to measure, manage and control their economic, social and ecological resources more efficiently and effectively.  

In a working environment that is changing almost daily as a result of digitalisation and disruptive technologies, we are committed to looking after the health and wellbeing of our employees, partners and our clients. 

Looking after Customers


We want to ensure that our customers have a positive and lasting impression of our business by going the extra mile to resolve many of the daily operational challenges they come across in running their business. To achieve this we are:


  • constantly monitoring and looking at ways to improve customer satisfaction and retention levels.

  • ensuring that employees, subcontractors and clients are aware of the correct Health & Safety guidelines that we follow.

  • our energy and carbon portal coupled with our managed service ensures we communicate clearly and regularly with our clients.

  • committed to doing all we can to help our customers, partners, suppliers (both upstream and downstream) work towards the Net -Zero greenhouse gases by 2050 agreed and adopted by the UK Government. Our key areas of focus lie in buildings, surface transport, industry, power and waste.

  • our strategy is to help our clients create and maintain a smart power infrastructure with connected assets through the creation of flexible micro and mini-grids, in which energy can be generated, distributed and consumed within the same area. 



Looking after Employees
