Energy Management & Compliance
Are you maximising your efficiency?
Energy regulations and audits are a crucial part of energy management but understanding energy usage requires extensive knowledge and experience to recognise consumption patterns within context. Taking action to comply with regulations and achieve recognised standards, sends a strong message about your commitment to the environment and is often a catalyst for further cost reduction and efficiency.
Whether it be assistance with savings, understanding your bills or looking at how much energy you use, we have the necessary knowledge and experience to help with your queries.
We will work with you to optimise your usage through on-site surveys and equipment / appliance analysis. We will also review your invoices (including water) to ascertain profile patterns and operational processes.
Our services can provide in-depth analytical reports containing recommendations for energy reduction and potential cost savings.
Introduced in April 2019, Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) is the UK Government’s replacement legislation to a number of existing, and some soon to expire, programmes covering energy and carbon reporting and taxation.
Who needs to comply?
Large UK incorporated companies are required to comply with SECR if they have two of the three qualifying conditions:
At least 250 employees
An annual turnover greater than £36m
An annual balance sheet total over £18m
Public sector organisations are exempt from SECR
Private companies that can provide evidence that they use less than 40,000kWh in a year will not be required to comply
The Government introduced the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) to encourage large businesses to implement energy-saving measures and help to cut UK carbon emissions. Businesses must carry out an audit of their energy-consuming activities and identify cost-effective energy-saving measures once every four years.
You qualify for ESOS if your organisation:
Employs 250 people or more, or
Has an annual turnover in excess of €50 million (£44.8m), and an annual balance sheet total in excess of €43 million (£38.5m)
Fines can be punitive so it is critical that if you do qualify for ESOS you are complaint as soon as possible particularly with Phase 3 to be announced soon.
