Simplified Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR)

Measuring and reporting energy use and emissions can drive improvements in energy efficiency which is in turn vital to business productivity, and can help businesses to understand the risks facing them.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) and Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

An EPC informs potential buyers and tenants about the energy performance and efficiency of a building. The Domestic MEES Regulations outline a minimum energy efficiency level for private residential and non-domestic rented properties.

Utility Bill Validation

SOCOTEC’s utility bill validation service ensures that your business is only billed for the energy it uses at the rates agreed by your supplier, which could make all the difference to your monthly energy consumption and costs.

Energy Monitoring and Targeting

Energy monitoring and targeting is an energy management technique which involves analysing key building information such as occupancy, location, asset/plant operation and energy/water/waste to identify and then reduce its carbon footprint.

ESOS (Phase 2)

The reporting date for Phase 2 must include December 31 2018 and the compliance date with ESOS is December 5 2019.

Energy / Carbon Reduction Audits

Our approach to reporting of utility, energy and carbon management takes the form of two distinct areas.
