Make Flexible Working Work for You

22nd July 2020

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed traditional production shift working to new flexible shift patterns to keep the business operating and staff safe. This can provide untapped saving opportunities on electricity costs if managed effectively.

You might associate flexible working industries and job roles with writing, accounting, and marketing not manufacturing.

Over the last few years, some manufacturing businesses have adopted a more flexible approach to improve manufacturing flexibility and costs, but also the work-life balance of its employees.

More recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has changed traditional production shift working to new flexible shift patterns to keep the business operating and staff safe.

This can provide untapped saving opportunities on electricity costs if managed effectively. Electricity has peak pricing periods which companies need to be aware of and should try to avoid. This is the active control of energy consumption called ‘load management’.

By analysing the whole production process in line with electricity market pricing, companies can make more cost-effective production decisions. That may mean changing the shifts of a particular cell or line to take advantage of off-peak pricing.

Professional Energy Purchasing can help members analyse their operations and advise on any potential changes to production to save money on electricity.
