Energy Audits | Low Energy Consultancy

Overview of Energy Audits

Energy Audits, Energy Management and Carbon Reduction are applicable to all buildings. The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC) is a regulatory scheme to improve energy efficiency in large public and private sector organisations. This will be applicable to organisations that consumed at least 6,000MWh of electricity through half-hourly meters during a year.

As part of this scheme, organisations must provide disclosure packs including their annual CO2 emissions, based on non-transport use, of electricity, gas and any other fossil fuels for April 2010 - March 2011. There are numerous organisations that fall outside this scheme, but still aspire to establish, monitor and improve their building stock performance.

Our accredited Low Carbon Energy Assessors (LCEA) and Low Carbon Consultants can carry out full energy audits of buildings in accordance with CIBSE Technical Manuals, TM22 & TM46. Building performance is then established against industry standards and benchmarks. An overall appraisal of fabric, building services and occupancy efficiencies are analysed. Our audits include recommendations for improvement, applicable new technologies and interaction strategies, complete with contractor rate costs.

More importantly the expected introduction of new legislation in 2018/19 will require all properties sold or let to be of an Energy rating of 'E' or better, regardless of CRC commitments. With respect to the Green Deal and RHI, dwellings seeking the benefits from the scheme will need to provide evidence that their property is equal to an Energy rating of  'C' rating or above, before the payments can be made. In both instances a building assessment is required to establish the Energy rating and then evaluate measures that could be applied to improve the Energy rating.
