Energy Legislation

The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is an emissions trading scheme designed to improve energy efficiency and reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted in the UK. The CRC applies to all organisations consuming over 6,000 MWh of electricity per year. These organisations will be taxed for the carbon dioxide emissions that are attributable to energy consumption.

They will need to monitor and report all energy use emissions from all sources – electricity, gas and other fuels. An automatic 10% uplift will be applied to consumption figures which are estimated. Providing accurate energy consumption data will allow you to avoid this unnecessary cost.

From the outside, sustainability regulations such as the Carbon Reduction Commitment and the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) can appear rather daunting, and possibly very costly to implement. However, this does not need to be the case.

By calling on our knowledge and practical experience of energy management compliance – whether the rules are mandatory, voluntary or reputational – your commitment towards a more sustainable and energy efficient future is in safe hands.

ESOS statistics suggest that a 20% reduction in energy consumption can be made if energy efficiency measures are implemented. Following the survey, we can help prioritise key improvements in an Energy Reduction Plan and then assist you with the installation of the appropriate equipment and systems.

ESOS – Under the Government’s Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), all organisations with more than 250 employees or with an annual turnover of more than 50 million euros, had an obligation to complete an ESOS notification of compliance – to identify energy saving opportunities on a four-yearly cycle thereafter. Our accredited advisors and ESOS Lead Assessors who will ensure your compliance with the scheme and will also help you to maximise the energy saving opportunities identified.

EPC Energy Certification – Individual ratings, from A to G, are detailed on every energy certificate we produce on your behalf for an asset, production line or building(s) currently in use and also a future rating if the energy reduction opportunities listed on the certificate are implemented. This certification system has proven very effective in improving energy efficiency.
