Energy Audits and compliance

Identify future savings and comply with legislation

Looking to reduce your energy costs?

Start with an energy audit

Every business wants to control its energy spend. It’s one of the key areas of expenditure that every organisation has to face. It’s also complex. Energy saving measures can range from buildings and equipment upgrades to awareness programmes that help to change staff behaviour.

So where do you begin? To identify where you could make substantial savings, the best place to start is with a professional energy audit. Your qualified assessor will look closely at every aspect of your energy consumption and suggest specific solutions to reduce your energy expenditure and carbon emissions. If you’re ready to unlock ongoing savings, it’s time to find out more about what an energy audit can do for your business.

Knowledge is power

Over the course of our audits, we develop a full understanding of the specific challenges faced by your business; analysing building construction, looking closely at the way energy is consumed and then making specific recommendations that are right for each building and the way your company operates.

The result is a detailed, holistic view of possible energy conservation measures, complete with estimated costs, potential savings (in terms of energy, CO2 emissions and money) and projected payback times. We can also apply data analytics to verify projected savings, helping to build your commercial case for change.

What are the benefits of undertaking an energy audit?

ESOS compliance

If your business meets the qualification criteria of the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), regular energy audits will be an essential part of the compliance procedure. Find out more about ESOS compliance here.

Business case development

Using our data analytics capability, it’s easy to build a strong economic rationale for capital expenditure projects – and clearly demonstrate payback times.


An energy audit will tell you how you use energy right now in your organisation – and identify potential solutions to reduce consumption.

Informed decisions

The energy audit report will give you the facts and figures you need to make informed decisions about implementing energy saving measures and future energy policies.

Project prioritisation

Your energy audit will help you to prioritise the implementation of energy saving projects, ensuring you make quick gains and phase any capital expenditure. It will also indicate how you can save energy by improving processes and changing staff behaviour.
