Our clients trust us to help them in understanding and complying with the latest legislation and rules relating to energy efficiency, emissions and compliance. This is important to avoid potential penalties and achieve energy efficiency benefits while avoiding a substantial administrative burden. We support our customers with energy audits or any other issues relating to compliance. Most importantly we link compliance with energy efficiency and carbon commitment reductions into proactive energy management programmes that deliver value and cost benefits in the long-term.
Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)
We offer end-to-end service for the CRC (Carbon Reduction Commitment) Energy Efficiency scheme. Participation is mandatory for large UK companies who use electricity through half-hourly metering and over a minimum volume. We can provide data collection and annual reporting service to ensure compliance, improve energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
Numbers of UK organisations are required to meet the requirements of this mandatory energy assessment scheme. Organisations that meet the criteria must carry out ESOS assessments every four years. Audits should disclose energy used in buildings, industrial processes and transportation necessary to conduct business activities. Purpose of the scheme is to identify cost-effective energy saving measures.
We manage qualification and compliance by collating energy consumption, managing the site audits and appointing a qualified Lead Assessor to issue detailed report on energy cost efficiency and CO2 emissions.
Beyond compliance, ESOS report can identify energy efficiency measures which result in energy cost savings and reduction in CO2 emissions.
Climate Change Agreements (CCA)
Climate change agreements are voluntary agreements introduced by UK industry and the Environment Agency to reduce energy use and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in return for a discount on the Climate Change Levy (CCL), a tax added to electricity and fuel bills. The Environment Agency administers the CCA scheme on behalf of the whole of the UK.
By entering the CCA agreement, the CCL will be reduced by:
- 90% on electricity bills
- 65% on other fuels
CCAs are available for a wide range of industry sectors from major energy-intensive processes such as chemicals, paper and supermarkets to agricultural businesses and collocating data centres.
We manage qualification and compliance by collating energy consumption, managing the site audits, reporting on energy reduction targets and appointing a qualified assessor at the industry umbrella organisation.
The CCA’s is not compulsory scheme but targeted incentive to reduce Climate Change Levy cost in exchange for achieving energy efficiency. By opting for the CCA, qualifying businesses can opt out from the CRC scheme, which is compulsory, and save on administration cost.
Our qualified client saved: £46,914 (value of CCL discount) plus £79,644 (value of avoiding CRC). Total savings achieved £126,557 less administrative charges of estimated £7,150.
We believe that all qualifying businesses should take advantage and join the CCA scheme as it provides tangible cost savings and leads to reduction in CO2 emission.
