Energy and carbon-reduction regulations now exist in many forms and can affect many different aspects of your business.
The need to comply with legislation such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) and the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive on Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) means that organisations need to take issues of energy efficiency and carbon reduction seriously.
In the case of ESOS, organisations face fines for non-compliance while commercial and residential properties with F or G EPC ratings cannot be rented out from April 1st 2018.
Business and other organisations focus on formulating strategies and plans for achieving or exceeding the requirements. They can then reap the benefits of reduced energy consumption in their buildings.
At SaveMoneyCutCarbon, energy and controls consultants help our clients understand the areas that apply to them, the associated risks and ensure they fulfil their obligations as a central element of an energy audit and SORT report.
“They were able to come in after the school activities had finished in the afternoon. The Team were very amenable to working around any occupational restrictions we had with clubs and so on.They were a cheerful bunch and left the school tidy everyday with the furniture returned to its usual positions.There were a few changes to the fittings etc. that were noted during the fitting from the original survey and these were put in place without any problems."
"Overall, the standard of work from SaveMoneyCutCarbon was impressive. After SaveMoneyCutCarbon secured the interest-free loan, they moved very quickly to install the LED lighting, ensuring that the work was completed during the summer holidays, which was excellent. The early impressions of the new lighting are very positive, particularly in the library area and staff room. I’m sure we will see more benefits as the winter draws in.”
"There was a strong business case for choosing LED lighting and we’re looking forward to reduced costs over many years.The lighting is much improved, a lot brighter and clearly better quality, which I’m sure we’ll notice even more as winter draws in.”
"Lighting controls in particular are a great asset as it is difficult to rapidly change people’s attitudes to switching off lighting."
