2010 - Nick Proctor (Amber Energy Consultants Ltd)
Amber Energy Consultants work with businesses to control, manage, and reduce their business energy costs. Their passion is providing a fully integrated service where clients are educated and costs managed downwards, consulting on every part of an energy bill so clients are aware of what makes up their total costs.

Their metering services combine well with this education and information service to provide online consumption guidance and analysis. They focus on distinguishing themselves from simple comparison websites, as cost reduction and control by this method is very limited - it also requires the business to remember to check their costs annually. They save businesses a great deal of money by managing their purchasing strategies. Considering changes in the markets alongside their business model - since a three year purchasing strategy does not suit a business wishing to increase their production in year 2 (for example). They are unique in their approach and integration into businesses - no one else goes as far as to ensure the needs of their clients are met.
