British industry squanders a staggering £3.2bn and emits almost 58 million tonnes of CO2 every year by using out of date off-mains energy sources.
That's according to a report from LPG supplier Flogas - the Flogas Energy Expenditure Report - which reveals that, despite falling oil prices, the £12bn per year currently spent on oil can be cut to £8.7bn.
Oil is expensive, inefficient and dirty to burn. By switching to energy sources such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), Flogas suggests that companies could cut CO2 emissions by 13.2 million tonnes per year, saving up to £2.6bn in energy costs.

When it comes to investing in a forklift truck, there are a lot of factors to consider. If it was as simple as comparing truck features, performance statistics, and of course prices, then operators would probably purchase them online. Keith Higginson, commercial marketing manager at Calor Gas Ltd highlights the benefits of LPG, which include a range of cost efficiencies, environmental improvements and productivity gains.
Results from a nationwide public survey by Comres, showed that British drivers would consider converting to LPG to avoid the rising costs of petrol and diesel as fuel prices are predicted to rise by an average of 10.4% over the next six years.

LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) is the generic name for commercial propane and butane. They are by-products of the refining of oil and natural gas with approximately 40% of all LPG coming from the refining of crude oil and 60% from the separation of gas products. It can be stored in gas cylinders/gas bottles or in bulk storage containers either above or below the ground. The pressurised cylinders are supplied up to about 80% full to allow for thermal expansion.
