The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment and savings identification scheme for large organisations in the UK that meet the qualification criteria. ESOS allows organisations to identify areas to cut costs and increase energy efficiency.
The Government has recently published their response to a consultation on the introduction of a new reporting framework, which came into effect on 1st April 2019, called “Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting” (SECR).
The Carbon Action Programme (CAP) is E&CM’s approach to helping clients achieve their net zero ambitions. CAP can improve your actions by providing a robust foundation, clear scope and ready made solutions that provide tangible results to support your goals. It also aligns with mandatory reporting schemes such as ESOS and SECR as well as voluntary schemes such as Science Base Targets (SBT), Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
The UK Government is currently consulting on extending the CCA scheme until 2025, and it has reopened the scheme to new entrants for the first time since October 2018. The deadline for new applications is 30th November 2020 – but be aware that some trade associations may require your submissions up to 4 weeks before this date. Our CCA Administration service has been designed to take the hassle out of the CCA application and compliance process.
The Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme is a mandatory ‘measure and report’ scheme that requires the purchase of carbon allowances at a fixed price to cover organisation-wide electricity and gas consumption.
Businesses work with us to help ensure they avoid financial penalties. By providing you with annual footprint reports, emissions reports, consumption analysis and evidence pack collation, we can support you across all phases of the CRC scheme.
Do you need to bring your internal processes up to scratch? Whether you’re looking to develop the management of energy sources and usage through ISO 50001, or planning to implement a system to measure and improve your environmental impact through ISO 140001, we have the expertise and can work with you to reach your goals.
Reviewing, monitoring and forecasting your energy consumption and costs is something we can help you with step by step, both in individual buildings and across entire portfolios.
Air Conditioning Certification
Did you know that the air-conditioning used within your building can amount to up to a third of your annual electricity cost? – That’s a whole lot of energy. Any system with an output in excess of 12kW needs to undergo an inspection to ensure that it is running efficiently.
Our accredited assessors will highlight opportunities to reduce wastage, save money and avoid costly government penalties and can help you to get the certification you need.
Energy Certification – DEC & EPC
Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are required for all buildings when they are constructed, sold or rented out; and Display Energy Certificates (DECs) are mandatory for large, public buildings occupied by public authorities or institutions.
Our nationwide team of accredited assessors can support you in completing the on-site and desktop assessments that are needed to attain certification.
