Renewable energy is big business nowadays but is still viewed with suspicion in certain quarters.
However with the advent and influence of Corporate Social Responsibility, one area of business that cannot afford to overlook the rise of renewables is the Corporate sector.
Businesses don't necessarily need to install their own wind farms to meet climate targets but they do need to recognise the import of accessing energy contracts that encourage investment and production of non-fossil fuel products.
EnergyIndex are here to help guide your business through the optimum ways to access renewable energy whilst doing so in the most cost effective manner possible.
Whether your CSR policy obligates action or you are simply motivated to do what is right for a sustainable future, EnergyIndex are here to help you along the way.
Energy Performance & Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards
You're most likely familiar with the EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) that has now been used for the last decade to audit the efficiency of domestic and non-domestic buildings. That there were grand intentions for this document was not in doubt however, for domestic customers at least this has not come to fruition.
For commercial landlords however the situation is very different.
From 1st April 2018 any commercial landlord with a property rated at E or below (on a scale of A+ to G) will be prevented from entering a new lease or from disposing of the property asset itself.
A conservative estimate is that some 35% of the current UK building stock is rated at E or below.
The risk to the ongoing prosperity of commercial landlords is obvious. Improve or lose.
EnergyIndex are here to help, from the first stage - getting a valid EPC rating in place - to the execution of an EPC plus - setting out the steps for above E rating compliance in the most cost effective and least intrusive manner possible.
