Energy Management & Purchase
Energy management is a term that has a number of meanings, but EPS is concerned with both the one that relates to saving energy in businesses, public-sector & government organizations as well as getting the right rate for purchase
When it comes to energy saving, energy management is the process of monitoring, controlling, and conserving energy in a building or organization.
EPS has experience in the setting up and running of monitoring, targeting and controlling energy use in organisations.
This can be on an interim basis covering staff absence or contract basis
Energy Purchase Are you looking for a competitive energy purchase rate or:
· Price check to the current market
· A green vs brown energy comparison
· Reverse engineer current contract to identify supplier and any current broker premiums

BREEAM In-Use is an online, international, environmental assessment methodology for independent, third party assessment and certification of a buildings operational performance.
The standard enables property investors, owners, managers and occupiers to drive sustainable improvements through operational efficiency, including how to continually manage the operation of their building effectively
ISO 50001 is the international standard for Energy Management Systems, created by the International Organization for Standardization.
The standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and improving an energy management system.
The purpose is to enable an organization to follow a systematic approach in achieving continual improvement of energy performance, including energy efficiency, energy security, energy use and consumption.
Building Energy Audits
An energy audit is an inspection survey and an analysis of energy flows for energy conservation in a building. It may include a process or system to reduce the amount of energy input into the system without negatively affecting the output. In commercial and industrial real estate, an energy audit is the first step in identifying opportunities to reduce energy expense and carbon footprint.
EPS uses the British Standard BS EN 16247 which defines an energy audit as an important step for an organisation, whatever its size or type, wanting to improve its energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and bring related environmental benefits.
SECR requires that companies include in their annual director’s report the following information for the financial year:
emissions intensity ratio,
energy efficiency narrative and
methodology used for reporting.
The reporting period is based on reporting companies’ financial year to align reporting.UK companies that fall into SECR are quoted, or large unquoted businesses and LLPs with at least two of the following conditions:
More than 250 employees
Greater than £36 million in annual revenue
Balance sheet greater than £18 million
Carbon Footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of the activities of a particular individual, organization, or community. To improve your organisations footprint you must first calculate the existing footprint
MEES, EPCs, & SBEM
In England and Wales, under legislation, from 1st April 2018 any commercial property that has an EPC of lower than an ‘E’ cannot be rented out to new tenants, or renew any existing tenancy contracts until at least an ‘E’ rating is obtained. From April 2023, MEES will apply to all existing commercial leases.
SBEM calculations are for non-domestic buildings and are required at planning stage. The ‘As Designed’ SBEM calculation is submitted to show that the building meets the Target Emission Rate for energy efficiency. The ‘As Built’ SBEM calculation is then submitted at the end of the build when all works have been completed and building control can sign the project off.
