Allow Thomas Edward Energy to carry out a bespoke energy report on your property which will enable us to calculate exactly how much energy you use, where it is used, and where we can reduce the energy usage to save you money.
Depending on our client’s requirements, we can carry out either a walk-through or detailed energy report which is essential for all work places. With so much emphasis now placed on cost reduction and carbon emissions reduction, the need to promote a better understanding of the current status of end-use energy efficiency is vital.
The reports, which are carried out by experienced personnel, will help create awareness among those involved in the management of energy within the company, and will also justify the necessity of energy efficiency solutions.
Energy Performance Certificates have been introduced to help improve the energy efficiency of all buildings – including homes. The certificate records how energy efficient a property is as a building and provides A-G ratings. These are similar to the labels now provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines.
They are produced using standard methods and assumptions about energy usage so that the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another building of the same type. This allows prospective buyers, tenants, owners, occupiers and purchasers to see information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions from their building so they can consider energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment.
An EPC is always accompanied by a recommendation report that lists cost effective and other measures (such as low and zero carbon generating systems) to improve the energy rating. A rating is also given showing what could be achieved if all the recommendations were implemented.
As part of the government’s plan to implement the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive, Display Energy Certificates (DEC’s) will need to be displayed in most public buildings from October 2008.
A DEC will be a requirement on each building, and will need to be renewed annually.
Those included are public authorities, and institutions providing public services that occupy or control buildings which are frequently visited by the public including the following;
