Our unique energy efficiency methodology will enable us to provide you with guaranteed savings - the details of which will depend on the site concerned.

The elements of your investment grade energy efficiency audit will be as follows:

  1. Investigate all areas of energy use.
  2. Identify systems (processes and/or buildings) with sufficient consumption to make significant savings possible.
  3. Use all available information – such as half-hourly data, gas/fossil fuel use profile, degree-day data (heating and cooling), water consumption, building structure, occupancy, location, ventilation and internal thermal dissipation and day-lighting availability to determine the theoretical energy requirement and actual energy consumptions of those systems.
  4. Determine the energy efficiency of each system.
  5. Determine the suitability of the installed plant in relation to the load profiles that it is required to support.
  6. Identify all significant viable energy/carbon reduction opportunities, making use of energy analysers, data-loggers and other measuring equipment as appropriate if sufficient data is not otherwise available. This will typically involve:
  • Checking combustion efficiency of all significant combustion plant
  • Assessing standing and other losses
  • Investigating the operation and capabilities of any building energy management systems (BMS)
  • Considering the scope for building fabric improvements and the resulting opportunities for the specification of smaller and thus more cost-effective plant
  1. Report on all of the above, providing an accurate assessment of the potential energy/carbon reductions along with details of the specific measures required for implementation, illustrative costs and payback periods.

Investment Grade Energy Audit of New Building for Southampton Solent University

“Enthusiastic and knowledgeable energy auditor, flexible in his approach and report produced well.”

Martin Birt, Estates Energy Manager

Thames Valley Police

Investment Grade Energy Audits and Condition Surveys for Thames Valley Police

“As the result of a rigorous tendering process, Thames Valley Police commissioned The Green Consultancy (TGC) to carry out Investment Grade Energy Audits of three large police stations.

We were impressed with TGC’s approach to the brief, the service, the professionalism shown in developing the project with us, and the audits carried out.

In fact their work is "light years ahead” of any energy consultancy that we have previously experienced. Their forensic

analysis of data coupled with their Energy Efficiency Methodology identified many major cost-saving opportunities – in particular, relating to poor BMS control and the massive over-sizing of plant by the M&E designers of the buildings.

After a meeting of our estates team with TGC to discuss the outcomes, we now have a robust energy-saving strategy for the buildings.

Following a further tendering exercise TGC, is now providing Condition Surveys combined with Investment Grade Energy Audits of more buildings to enable us to decide which to keep and how best to minimise costs and carbon emissions.

Energy Efficiency Audit for Hadlow College

“This was our second energy audit so the obvious ‘quick wins’ had already been identified and implemented where financially viable. The consultant understood our constraints and demonstrated a practical and knowledgeable approach to energy saving. We were impressed and grateful that he was able to quantify further valuable projects, amounting to a further 25%cost savings, and recommend ones that were suitable for the latest round of SALIX loans, which was very timely.”

Sue Brimlow, Business & Sustainability Co-ordinator

Energy Audit for Small Woods Association

"We have benefited greatly from The Green Consultancy’s expertise and flexibility. We are still in the early stages of working through the recommendations, we are however confident that we will have better functioning energy systems as a result of your support."

Energy Efficiency Audit  for Nottingham University Hospitals

“Thank you very much for the Energy Efficiency Audit Report.  I am very pleased with the very high standard of work achieved.  It is the best energy report I’ve seen – and I’ve seen a large number of them.”

Energy Efficiency Audit for K Hartwall

"The Green Consultancy investigated the potential for reducing of our energy consumption associated with air extraction. Variable Speed Drives were recommended, installed and are operating well. Because of the proven savings another VSD will be installed. The payback on 28% savings is less than two years so it is good financially as well as environmentally."
