Compliance Services

We can help you ensure full compliance with industry legislation and good practice to offer you absolute confidence and assurance in meeting any obligations required. Our compliance services ease your energy reporting for optimised understanding of your energy use, offering both time and labour saving opportunities.

ISO 50001

ISO 50001 is the internationally recognised standard for Energy Management Systems (EnMS). It’s the most robust framework for improving energy efficiency in the private and public sector. Achieving ISO 50001 certification shows your company’s commitment to continuous improvement in energy management and compliance with various energy related schemes.

ISO 50001 integrates with other standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. If your organisation is implementing these standards, you’ve already taken the first steps towards ISO 50001 certification.

Our implementation service will give you the framework and support to bring your procedures in line for certification. Our service is tailored to fit energy management policies already in place in your organisation.

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Phase 2

Under the ESOS scheme, all businesses defined as ‘large enterprises’ must carry out an audit of their energy consuming activities to identify cost-effective energy saving measures by 5 December 2019 – and at least once every four years thereafter. Failure to comply will result in financial penalties. Our ESOS service provides you with the following benefits:

Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC)

CRC legislation requires regular internal audits to be carried out by all participants, and states that they must be signed off by a director, or equivalent, to confirm that records are complete, correct and adequate. 

We will provide you with a complete CRC service including the audit, presentation of the findings and managing any correspondence with Industry Bodies, ensuring a comprehensive approach to compliance and peace of mind with minimal disruption to your business.

EU Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS)

The EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) is the largest multi-country, multi-sector greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions trading system in the world. Compliance is based on a cap-and-trade system whereby there is a limit or ‘cap’ set on the total GHG emissions allowed by all participants and this cap is converted into tradable emission allowances. Participants must monitor and submit yearly reports and surrender enough allowances to cover their annual emissions.

ENGIE’s EU ETS administration and monitoring service aims to reduce the burden of the EU ETS compliance process:

We will compile an evidence pack recording energy use, GHG emissions and all relevant information.

Display Energy Certificates (DECs)

Display Energy Certificates (DECs) are designed to show the energy performance of public buildings and last for either 1 or 10 years depending on the total floor area of your building. They use a scale that runs from ‘A’ to ‘G’ - ‘A’ being the most efficient and ‘G’ being the least.

Energy Performance Certificates and Display Energy Certificates: The first step is for ENGIE to conduct a site audit to collect building and system information for the approved performance assessment and certificate. The information gathered on-site is then used to carry out simulation of the building in government-approved energy modelling software to determine the building operational rating and grade.  This information is then logged on the Government register. Simultaneously, an advisory report is compiled, identifying energy improvement measures which can be put in place to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)

Much like the multi-coloured sticker on new appliances, EPCs tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating from A (very efficient) to G (inefficient). EPCs let the person who will use the building know how costly it will be to heat and light, and what its carbon dioxide emissions are likely to be.

Air Conditioning Inspections

The TM44 legislation mandates that all air conditioning systems with an effective rated output of more than 12kw must have regular inspections by an energy assessor at periods of no more than 5 years apart.

ENGIE uses CIBSE’s government approved TM44 methodology to carry out its air conditioning efficiency inspections. The inspection will be carried out by a CIBSE Accredited Air Conditioning Inspector and the report issued will be valid for 5 years after which you will be required to have a further inspection. The report will be issued in the Department of Communities and Local Government recommended format using Sterling eVolve software or similar for uploading on to the Landmark Registry.
