Renewable Energy

Environmental sustainability is becoming increasingly important for the long-term success of organisations.
Utilising renewable and low-carbon energy solutions is now essential to comply with legislation and to meet ambitious carbon reduction targets.
We can help you navigate the complex energy sector and simplify your clean energy options. As well as create a green plan, that will integrate sustainability policies and ensure the resilience of your business.

Achieving net zero carbon emissions is now a global goal, and we can help your business to become a part of it.

The future of energy is renewable

The green energy revolution

In our Renewable Energy Guide, we look at green power sources: how they work, their strengths and weaknesses, and their future here in the UK. Then we look at how they can benefit you, and how we can help to integrate sustainability into the core of your business.

Onsite generation and green procurement

Stable and reliable energy

Perhaps the most sustainable energy option is incorporating onsite renewable generation. This usually involves solar or wind power and is typically used to offset energy imported off the grid. This brings with it major environmental and economical benefits.

Green procurement allows for a long list of benefits, including more efficient and effective use of natural resources. By securing a higher percentage of energy from onsite generation and renewable sources, we can increase cost efficiency whilst lowering environmental impact.

Carbon Reporting

Our range of services will keep you compliant, maximise CO₂ savings, and boost your Corporate Social Responsibility credentials.

Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting
(SECR)

SECR aims to further incentivise the improvement of energy efficiency and reduction of carbon emissions. It also reduces some of the administrative burden of overlapping carbon schemes. The scheme has similar qualification criteria to ESOS and it was introduced from April 2019, to coincide with the end of the current CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme
(ESOS)

ESOS provides a real chance to improve the energy efficiency of your business, on a continual basis. We’re now in Phase 3 of the scheme, with a compliance deadline of 31st December 2022.

Climate Change Agreements
(CCAS)

Complying with the CCA scheme means you can receive a Climate Change Levy (CCL) discount on your electricity and gas bills. We’ll manage your compliance and regularly report on progress. CCL rates are increasing with the scrapping of the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme, and over the next few years the rates for electricity and gas will be brought more in line with each other.

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
(MEES)

If you’re a commercial landlord, this is a new legislation that your rented properties need to adhere to. MEES came into effect in April 2018, making it unlawful to grant new leases to properties with an F or G Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating.

Display Energy Certificate
(DECS)

DECs help to raise awareness of the energy usage of public buildings. All public buildings with a total useful floor area greater than 250m² are required to have a valid DEC and Advisory Report (AR) in place.

Energy Performance Certificates
(EPCS)

EPCs are a legal requirement under the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD), covering any building constructed, sold or let after 2008.
