The club has a mix of gas and electricity usage, predominantly electricity, which is used sporadically throughout the week depending on when games are played. Weather and light also has a factor on electricity usage.

The Breyer Group Stadium consists of four separate stands, ranging in age; original stand built in the 1950’s and the latest as early as 2008. With energy usage of almost 1,000,000 kWh per annum, the club wanted to protect the cost of energy long term, to provide stability to the club.

Consultiv Utilities provided a long term fully-fixed contract to provide stability. We also provided a full onsite energy audit to highlight areas of further savings across the site. Also provided a long term sponsorship with the club, to further support the club in the coming years.


Energy procurement initial savings are forecasted of approximately £60,000 per annum. Having a long term fixed price, the club are able to have budget certainty over costs, as well as on hand experts for any queries, questions or support with energy management.

The onsite energy audit completed in 2020, highlighted in excess of £20,000 savings per annum and reductions in carbon emissions equating to approximately 28t CO2 per annum.

“The club’s energy bills have been reduced substantially.”


Josh Stephens, Head of Commercial at Leyton Orient Football Club said, “The club’s energy bills have been reduced substantially whilst we are currently designing an education programme for staff with regards to way in which we can all play our part in saving energy.

“Not only will this reduce the club’s energy cost, but we are playing our part in reducing our carbon footprint. I can’t recommend Consultiv Utilities highly enough, and if you are looking to reduce overheads during these challenging times, please do reach out to Liam for an initial discovery chat.”

We are delighted to welcome Consultiv Utilities to the Orient Family, said Leyton Orient Chief Executive Danny Macklin. “In addition to a sponsorship partnership led by Josh, we were keen to further reduce our expenditure in energy at The Breyer Group Stadium.”

“Over the coming year we will be introducing various energy saving schemes, including a switch to LED lights in certain areas and exploring other opportunities to further reduce consumption.”
