Advice & Auditing

Initial Consultation

As with any new service provider, you want to ensure that you’ve selected the right person for the job. With this in mind, our goal is to deliver a first class service that meets your exacting needs. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your immediate requirements at no charge, which allows us to present our solution and assure you that we can support you on your path to meeting those needs, whether driven by legislation, energy and cost avoidance, social responsibility targets or other business drivers.

No such thing as a free lunch? We like to develop long term relationships with our clients and the same applies to you. The best approach in our view is to meet with you, offer a free initial consultation (and we might even extend to a free coffee or lunch) to demonstrate our professional expertise and outline our exceptional value for money services.

Energy Audits

Undertaking an energy (and water) audit is the first real step to reducing your energy consumption. The degree of thoroughness can range from a high level desktop assessment of an estate to a fully detailed Investment Grade Audit (IGA) of a site or a whole estate. The foundation of the audit is built on understanding the client needs and providing a service which maps these requirements, whilst always providing an expert attention to detail and outstanding value for money.

In our experience, we find that audits are typically either proactive (with the business looking to drive down energy costs, provide compliance, etc.) or reactive (higher than expected consumption providing concern and a solution required). We utilise a range of professional audit tools and equipment to identify energy saving measures as well as identifying the root causes of excessive energy consumption.

We are well versed at providing a whole manner of audits from single site audits to larger multi-site estates where a more detailed and prioritised estate management strategy may be beneficial.

We seek to undertake all of our audits to best practice standards, namely to follow guidance in BSEN 16247, making all of our energy audits conform to the requirements of ESOS (insert link).

Each organisation is distinct in its needs but our typical approach would be to:

  • Gather and analyse the consumption data
  • Undertake a detailed site survey to investigate all energy consuming equipment and how the site is managed and users behave, noting all key energy saving opportunities and providing feedback to personnel on-site
  • Undertake calculations to provide costs and estimated savings for all key measures
  • Present a report which prioritises the identified measures and is accessible to both the non-technical and technical reader
  • Outline the practical next steps, including signposting finance options, implementation support and project management advice to encourage action
