Energy Efficiency

We advise on energy savings and energy efficiency projects. This includes advice on the procurement of retrofit measures and funded Energy Performance Contracts (EPCs).

Energy efficiency is not just about hitting environmental targets. Initiatives are increasingly tied to wider objectives, such as reducing energy demand and avoiding investment in expensive generating assets and grid capacity. In the commercial sector, energy efficiency can reduce overheads and help businesses become more competitive.

We have an established track record in advising on the procurement and delivery of energy efficiency programmes. This covers advice on available funding streams, the procurement of energy partners and the delivery of a range of funded energy efficiency measures. In the UK market we have successfully delivered energy efficiency programmes funded through the Energy Company Obligation for public buildings and housing. We have also advised on wider RHI and FIT funded measures, including financed Solar PV, biomass boilers and upgraded controls. For most of our clients the key driver is improving energy performance while minimising the need for up front capital investment.

Alongside larger scale energy efficiency projects, we are also involved in the structuring and delivery of pilot projects exploring new technology and customer behaviour. We have been involved in the delivery of a number of innovative demand reduction projects in the residential and commercial context.
