Many large companies are engaging in a holistic approach to their energy and carbon strategy. By evaluating energy efficiency programmes, on-site renewable potential, storage and electricity market opportunities (e.g., demand side response, ancillary services), organisations can minimise cost, carbon emissions and exposure to volatile energy markets in parallel with improving sustainability performance and capturing additional revenue sources.
Key UK Government policies are now anchored by the industrial strategy and include ESOS (Phase 2 deadline is December 2019), CCAs, CCL and CRC. A consultation on streamlining Energy and Carbon Reporting took place in 2017 with the government’s response expected shortly.
What are the opportunities?
– Led Lights
Save upto 80% energy with 1-2 years pay-back
Avoid approximately 75% of current heat loss
Reduce light usage by 50%
– Solar Panels
up to 100% savings on daytime electricity costs.
– HVAC system
The use of high performance HVAC equipment can result in considerable energy, emissions, and cost savings (10%–40%)
