Your assessment

This assessment comprises six essential steps. Starting with meticulous data collection and followed by in-depth analysis, we help you gain valuable insights into your energy usage.

Our team will work in partnership with you, from initial assessment to implementation, ensuring a smooth project progress. This holistic approach guarantees sustainable energy and cost savings tailored to your business’s requirements.

Step 1: Energy usage data assessment 

You’ve already begun measuring your energy usage, and now it’s time to take it to the next level. Our team will carry out an in-depth analysis of your workplace building’s energy consumption data. We leave no stone unturned, meticulously examining energy usage to collate more comprehensive electricity data.

This approach provides us with invaluable insights, setting the stage for pinpointing precise areas where improvements can continue to be made. Your commitment to data-driven decision-making is the key to unlocking a more efficient and sustainable future for your business.

Step 2: On-site assessment  

The next step in the assessment involves a site visit, where we examine 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, such as heat pumps or 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, and how to draw up the right quote requests. 

Because we are independent we offer impartial advice that focuses on your business’s best interests, and help you 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 point 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.
