Energy Audits & Surveys

Energy audit

A systematic measuring and recording of energy consumption to identify what energy is being used and where. Identifies opportunities to reduce energy consumption while maintaining and improving human comfort in buildings, or the effectiveness of industrial processes. Prioritises opportunities for energy savings from greatest to least cost effective. More...

Why have an energy audit - what are the benefits?
An energy audit identifies in which areas you should expend effort and expenditure. It allows comparison with existing benchmarks, or establishes performance benchmarks specific to your own organisation. It contributes to justifying investment decisions, reputation and corporate social responsibility (CSR). More...

Energy Survey

A detailed investigation on the feasibility and potential savings from a specific energy saving opportunity. More...

Renewable energy

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. (Wikipedia).
The amount of renewable energy available is dependent on the available resource. By its very nature this is usually variable over time, difficult and costly to measure. As a result renewable energy options are often not considered. To minimise costs and increase the number of projects considered, we use validated computer models that can quickly and accurately assess a resource. 
Step One: Consists of a desk based assessment (pre-feasibility) to establish the size of a potential resource and to answer the question 'Is this site/project worthy of more detailed investigation?' The minimum of information is required. A site visit is not normally included at this stage, but is available on request at extra cost.
Step Two: Is a more detailed feasibility study, normally carried out if further investigation is warranted following the desk top pre-feasibility study. More...

ESOS Audits

ESOS and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED)

ESOS is the name of the scheme given to the UK’s implementation of Article 8 of the European Commission’s Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) which requires mandatory energy audits for large organisations at least every 4 years. The aim is to help and encourage large organisations to cut carbon emissions and contribute to the EU reduction target of 20% by 2020.

As an ESOS Lead Assessor accredited by the Energy Institute we can help with your energy audits in the UK and across the EU. Many member states accept ESOS and ESOS Lead Assessors for compliance with the EED. More...

EPC logo


DEC: Diplay Energy Certificate
EPC: Energy Performance Certificate
TM44: Air Conditioning Inspection

If you are an occupier of a building in the UK requiring a DEC, by law you will need to display a DEC showing an Operational Rating in a prominent place clearly visible to the public and have in your possession or control a valid Advisory Report. More...

All commercial and domestic buildings in the UK are required by law to have an EPC when being offered for sale or rent. The EPC must be obtained before a contract to sell or let is entered into. More...

Air conditioning systems for comfort cooling (and heat pumps for heating) can consume a lot of energy. The law requires all air conditioning systems with an effective output of 12kW or more to be assessed for energy efficiency at least every 5 years. More...

Analysis Software

You Can’t Improve What you Don’t Measure

Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.” (Dr H. James Harrington)

These days, measuring energy consumption is the easy part - there are numerous solutions for measuring energy, utilities, production, environmental parameters, etc. We can measure pretty much anything, but with measurement comes data - oodles of it!

The useful part is understanding what you measure and gaining insights into what drives consumption and how it can be optimised, but for most of us, reams and reams of numbers are meaningless. This is where analysis software comes in. A suite of integrated tools that perform all kinds of processing and statistical analysis on your data, presenting you with more meaningful and easy to understand charts, graphs and summary reports.

Energy Storage

Reduce utility costs, optimise renewable energy and enable EV Fast-charging

Energy storage works by capturing electricity produced by both renewable and non-renewable resources and storing it for use at a time which is most beneficial, giving greater flexibility and control of electrical usage. Energy storage allows users to switch to stored electricity and come off the grid, reducing demand and useage charges.
Energy storage can also enable a site with limited grid capacity to charge electric vehicles (EVs) without upgrading infrastructure. More...

Savings Verification

Or rather, confirming how much less has been used than would have been

When one implements Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) and talks about energy 'savings', what one really means is 'the absence of energy consumption'.
If energy hasn't been consumed we can't measure it, so how do we know if our ECM has been effective in reducing energy consumption and saving money?
What we can do is measure energy use to determine what consumption would have been if we hadn't carried out the ECM and from these measurements determine savings. We use The International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP), the most widely used and recognised Measurement and Verification (M&V) protocol in the world to achieve this.
