The driver for creating and maintaining an effective Energy Management system for your business is based on three fundamentals:
1. The idea of reviewing your energy costs;
2. A business case to justify lowering these costs;
3. On-going motivation and support to follow the plan and continue improving your energy performance.
If you are reading this page, you’re already thinking about your energy consumption, wondering if you are using more energy than you should and if there is anything you can do to reduce energy costs. You have passed stage number 1 on your path towards a more energy efficient business and are ready to move on to stages 2 and 3: you need a business case to drive your idea and expert, long-term support to start lowering your energy costs.
Energy efficiency and energy management are at the forefront of many companies’ energy policies nowadays but despite best intentions, there are still many barriers, ranging from lack of awareness to budget constraints, for the implementation of energy efficiency measures. We can help you overcome some of these barriers and progress toward steps No 2 & 3 of client specific Energy Management plan.
As an approved EECA programme partner we can access government funding of up to 40% of a total energy efficiency project cost, which will give your business a financial incentive to become more energy efficient. And because we guarantee that you will reach at least 90% of your energy savings target by the end of an agreed period, you know we will provide you with the essential ongoing support to achieve tangible and long-term results.

Our energy services include:
Widely referred to as energy audits within the industry, we prefer the term “assessments” which removes negative connotations sometimes associated with the word “audit”, often perceived as something aimed at identifying mistakes or errors. “Assessment” conveys more accurately the activity involved with an energy analysis, ie: “to assess the current state of a building and make recommendations to improve its performance”.
We can provide free, no-obligation building energy performance assessments to identify energy savings opportunities and advice you of project viability and opportunity to proceed with funding application. We then take care of your project from conception and after completion by mapping out a professional, internationally recognized, Measurement & Verification (M&V) plan to monitor and regularly report on your achieved savings.
Energy Monitoring and Targeting
The aim of an Energy Monitoring and Targeting activity is to measure and understand customers’ energy use and then identify and prioritise the opportunities to lower it by targeting specific areas of energy waste.
To implement an M&T project we may provide suitable metering equipment and related software so we can carry out on-going site auditing and data analysis, identify and prioritize your savings opportunities and assist you with implementing operational optimisation.
Continuous Commissioning of HVAC systems
A Continuous Commissioning project will help ensure that all HVAC equipment, (elements, pumps, fans, sensors, controls etc.) are operating within design criteria, that the design is relevant to the current system utilisation and that all services are being controlled and managed to operate efficiently.
Audit and Works
These types of project aim at assessing and implementing energy efficiency measures for specific building services, i.e. space heating/cooling and ventilation or commercial refrigeration.
