Financing your energy transition

We are not a financial service provider, but if initial investment costs are a concern, our energy efficiency assessments can assist you in accessing funding opportunities. This will ensure you get the funding you need precisely when you need it. Additionally, we’ll assess the savings to ensure that the money saved from reduced energy bills can cover any loan payments.

Take the next step of your energy efficiency journey 

You’ve done the easy bits, you downloaded and implemented the quick-wins we recommend in our free Workplace Energy Efficiency Checklist. Things like developing an energy efficiency strategy, bringing your team onboard with your plans, and then taking simple actions like changing to LED light bulbs, updating heating controls etc.  

And now you’re ready to take that next step of your journey, and bring in the ESOx experts to get a comprehensive energy efficiency assessment of your workplace building/s done.  

But how does the assessment process work? In a nutshell, we can outline it through six straightforward steps:

Step 1: Energy usage data assessment 

Data is key. You need to understand how much energy you are currently using and when it is being used. That is why your journey towards improved energy efficiency starts with a comprehensive analysis of your workplace building’s energy consumption data. 

Our team will meticulously examine the energy bills and uses any available half-hourly electricity data to gain valuable insights. This crucial step lays the foundation for identifying potential areas of improvement. 

Step 2: On-site assessment  

The next step in our project journey involves a site visit, where we explore the building’s infrastructure, equipment, controls, and usage practices. This hands-on evaluation by our highly experienced Energy Assessors allows us to understand the building’s unique characteristics and tailor our recommendations accordingly. 

We’ll also discuss the options of low-carbon technologies, including solar PV, and how they can contribute to a greener and more energy-efficient building. 

Step 3: Analysis and report    

We present you with a detailed recommendation report, outlining the proposed measures specific for your business, complete with estimated costs, projected energy use, and carbon savings. Armed with this information, you gain a clear understanding of the transformative potential these measures hold for your building’s environmental impact and your financial resilience. 

Step 4: Discuss findings 

In our commitment to support you throughout this journey, we arrange a follow-up call to delve deeper into the findings and address any additional queries you may have. We’re on hand to help you and your organisation make informed decisions about implementing [our] recommendations in a way that aligns with your sustainability goals. 

Step 5: Implementation 

Navigating through energy efficiency terminologies and specifications requires reliable allies. In this step, we provide you with essential pointers and recommendations to trustworthy local installers, and how to draw up the right quote requests. 

Because we are independent we offer impartial advice, that has your best business’s interests at heart. Together, we can forge partnerships with skilled professionals dedicated to realising your energy-saving vision. 

Step 6: The road ahead 

As we approach the final stretch of this part of your transformative journey, we guide you toward potential funding opportunities available to implement further low-carbon projects. Paving the way for a more sustainable future, we can help you with the process of accessing grants, incentives, and financing schemes. 

You know that reducing energy use makes perfect business sense. No one wants to waste money on unnecessary fossil fuels. That is why now is the time to get in touch with our team of highly experienced experts who are ready to guide you through these next steps of your energy efficiency journey.
