Increasing legislation and changing requirements aimed at tracking and reducing energy consumption is raising the focus on energy-efficient technology, as well as bringing regulatory obligations to a larger number of organisations than ever before.

We can help you keep pace with changes in regulation and help you meet your energy, carbon and cost saving objectives, helping you navigate the often complex legislation to achieve a compliant and successful outcome, as well as to maximise financial savings.

Display Energy Certificates (DECs)

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) are certificates that provide an energy rating for public buildings. They are intended to help building owners and occupants understand how energy-efficient their building is, and to identify areas where improvements can be made to reduce energy consumption and associated costs. DECs are required for public buildings with a total useful floor area greater than 250 square meters and are valid for one year. The certificates are based on the actual energy consumption of the building, so they provide an accurate reflection of how efficiently it is being used. They are an important tool for promoting energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions in the built environment.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are certificates that provide an energy rating for buildings. They are intended to help building owners and potential buyers or tenants understand how energy-efficient a building is, and to identify areas where improvements can be made to reduce energy consumption and associated costs. EPCs are required by law on construction, let, or sale of a commercial building over 50m², with fines of a maximum £5,000 for non-compliance. The certificates provide a rating from A to G, with A being the most energy-efficient and G being the least. EPCs are an important tool for promoting energy efficiency and reducing carbon emissions in the built environment, and they can also help building owners to save money on energy bills by identifying opportunities for energy-saving improvements.

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment and reporting scheme for large organisations in the UK. The scheme requires qualifying organisations to undertake regular energy audits to identify cost-effective energy savings opportunities across their operations, including buildings, industrial processes, and transportation. ESOS is designed to help organisations improve their energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, thereby reducing their energy costs and contributing to the UK's energy efficiency targets. ESOS applies to organisations with more than 250 employees or an annual turnover of over £44 million and a balance sheet total of over £38 million. It is a key part of the UK's strategy to achieve its energy efficiency and carbon reduction targets under the Energy Efficiency Directive and the Climate Change Act.

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)

The Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) is a UK government regulation that sets a minimum energy efficiency standard for privately rented non-domestic buildings. The MEES regulations require all non-domestic buildings to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of at least an 'E' before they can be let to new tenants or have existing leases renewed. MEES regulations aim to improve the energy efficiency of the UK's building stock, reduce carbon emissions, and help businesses to save on energy costs. The regulations apply to all privately rented non-domestic properties, including offices, shops, industrial units, and warehouses, and are enforced by local authorities. The MEES regulations have been gradually phased in since April 2018, and it is now illegal to rent out a non-domestic property with an EPC rating of F or G, unless certain exemptions apply.

Streamlined Energy Carbon Reporting (SECR)

The Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) is a UK government initiative that requires large organisations to report on their energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, and energy efficiency measures. SECR replaces the previous Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) Energy Efficiency Scheme and is intended to simplify and streamline carbon reporting requirements for businesses. The scheme applies to all large UK companies, including quoted companies, large unquoted companies, and Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs) that meet certain criteria. SECR requires organisations to disclose their annual energy use, carbon emissions, and details of any energy-saving measures taken. The aim of the SECR is to increase transparency and encourage companies to take action to reduce their energy use and carbon emissions, contributing to the UK's overall targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

TM44 Air Conditioning Inspection

Five-yearly inspections of air conditioning units for comfort cooling with a total cooling output greater than 12kW, carried out by an accredited energy assessor, were introduced to improve the energy efficiency of public buildings. The assessment considers opportunities to replace older, less energy efficient or oversized air conditioning systems with new energy-efficient versions. Zenergi’s technical division has a team dedicated to managing TM44 inspections. We can help you evaluate whether you have a legal obligation, check whether you have a certificate already registered, or provide a quotation for inspection, as required.
