What Energy and Sustainability Managers can still do right now to take action!

Even with restricted travel, social distancing and working from home, there is still plenty that can be done to progress energy and sustainability plans and to make a difference.

Posted on 25 March 2020.

As a national energy and sustainability consultancy, we are fortunate that teleconferencing and smart working is a way of life for us so we are well-placed to help you.  Our site visits are, of course, subject to government guidelines but we will do all we can to continue to deliver a high quality service.  And in fact, there is a lot that we can all be doing to continue the good work of maximising opportunities to de-carbonise our world and to ensure statutory compliance.  The Climate Emergency is not going away just because our attention is currently diverted.

Here are some actions that you can take now to make a positive difference:

  1. Ensure compliance with SECR – the first reporting period ends on the 31st March 2020 – are you ready? - SECR

  2. If you are going through a shutdown period, now is the ideal time to carry out a baseload analysis and optimisation.

  3. Consider implementing energy awareness training by eLearning – Be Energy

  4. Explore better ways to organise and prioritise your energy projects - Energy Activator

  5. Take the first steps towards achieving Net Zero.There is a lot that can be done without leaving your desk – Net Zero

  6. Can you get cash back through compliance?Make sure you are on top of all available schemes –many people are paying too much Climate Change Levy

  7. Take a look at your Energy Strategy – is it still on track and in line with current legislation, technology and targets – Energy Strategy

  8. If you aren’t already certified, now is a good time to carry out a ISO 50001 Gap Analysis and start implementation – ISO 50001

  9. Are you submitting Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reports? Now could be a good time to compile the data and evaluate its accuracy.

  10. Good data is critical to good energy management! A metering and monitoring audit will optimise your energy reporting, management and costs.
