Energy Compliance

Our specialist energy survey team brings a unique mix of technical expertise and practical experience, helping clients to understand the energy performance of their asset base. We can offer a team of chartered environmentalists to advise on the most effective way of reducing costs, maximising revenue and optimising carbon performance. We are able to produce a range of energy statements.

Display Energy Certificates

The Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations 2007 requires that buildings over 500m2, occupied or part occupied by a public authority or institution frequently visited by the public, will require a Display Energy Certificate (DEC) and associated advisory report. This includes schools, academies, colleges, universities and hospitals. The certificates can only be produced by qualified and accredited commercial energy assessors.

A Display Energy Certificate gives an ‘A – G’ rating of energy performance based on actual energy consumption for the building in question. An ‘A’ rating means good energy efficiency and low bills; a ‘G’ rating means poor efficiency and higher bills.

The certificate must be displayed in a prominent position within the building. Where the building has a total useful floor area of more than 1,000m, the DEC is valid for 12 months and the accompanying advisory report is valid for seven years. Where the building has a total useful floor area of between500m and 1000m, the DEC and advisory report are valid for 10 years.

The DEC will provide you with a better understanding of your energy consumption and the efficiency of your building. The certificate will be on display to show you are complying with the Regulations and will provide an indication of annual running costs.

We employ a team of energy and sustainability consultants, low carbon consultants and chartered surveyors who have specialist knowledge of energy performance and environmental matters.

Energy Performance Certificates

Our team of energy and sustainability consultants is able to advise on all matters relating to Energy Performance Certificates. The Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations 2007 requires that landlords / property owners must provide an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) when a business premise is rented, sold or constructed. The certificates can only be produced by qualified and accredited commercial energy assessors.

An EPC conveys summary information about the potential energy performance of a building, its fabric and services. The EPC gives an ‘A-G’ rating of energy performance based on CO2 emissions and environmental impact, known as the Asset Rating. An ‘A’ rating means an energy efficient building which should correlate to low energy bills.

The EPC will provide you with a better understanding of your business’s energy efficiency and the accompanied Recommendation Report will highlight measures which, if adopted, have the potential to save energy and money. The certificate will show your business is complying with the Energy Performance of Buildings Regulations 2007.

We employ a team of energy and sustainability consultants, low carbon consultants and chartered surveyors who have specialist knowledge of energy performance and environmental matters. Our energy efficiency services focus on reducing costs and optimising revenues.

ESOS

The Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment and energy saving identification scheme, sanctioned by the EU. The scheme applies to all large businesses throughout the UK and applies to:

  • Organisations that have 250 or more employees
  • Organisations with fewer than 250 employees but have an annual turnover exceeding €50m or a balance sheet exceeding €43m

Our chartered energy consultants are qualified ESOS Lead Assessors and can provide independent energy efficiency expertise to you

Certification under the international standard ISO 50001:2011 (Energy Management System, EnMS) is a permitted compliance route under ESOS and could offer additional benefits as an alternative to undertaking ESOS assessments.

Whatever route to ESOS compliance you decide, our ESOS Lead Assessors and ISO 50001 Lead Auditors can help you get there.
