For 2018 ECA have developed 2 exciting new services exclusively for bodyshops:

Electric Vehicle Charging Points
There are now over 160,000 charging points in the UK, with a predicted 7% of all cars in the UK to be electric vehicles by 2020. 30% of all vehicle charging will be done in the workplace and this prompted the idea.

There are many different charging options available to clients, numerous  providers, different services, grants available, all of which has made choosing the right solution problematic for customers.

Our service is:

  • Totally independent
  • Provides options best suited to individual requirements
  • Full project management from planning to installation and data analysis
  • Advice on grants, branding options and potential revenues
  • Full range of complimentary services.

Bodyshop Energy Baskets
This technique can deliver savings of up to 10% against purchasing on a normal fixed price contract:

Steve Silverwood, Managing Director, ECA Group, said,
“ Energy prices are set to continue increasing, wholesale electricity and gas costs are forecast to increase by over 25% by 2020, due to volatile markets and increasing taxes and system charges.

 We can help  bodyshops mitigate these increases by helping them develop an overall energy strategy to buy the right product at the right time, reduce energy wastage and implement technologies that can significantly reduce costs.”

The introduction of the Bodyshop Energy Baskets will give bodyshops access to purchasing solutions normally only available to large energy user.

ECA  offer ABP club members a completely free review of your own individual situation and will help create a strategy specific to your requirements.
