Reporting & Compliance
There are an ever increasing number of reporting requirements facing businesses including Climate Change Agreements (CCA), Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), Heat Network Regulations, Carbon and Greenhouse Gas Emissions and GRESB and we are able to assist by obtaining the relevant energy data for your submission. We can also recommend through our procurement process zero carbon energy contracts which are from either 100% renewable energy sources or via carbon offsetting

Reporting & Data Collection
ESOS and SECR schemes – ESOS examines energy usage, whereas SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting) is a mandatory requirement based on the number of employees, turnover and balance sheet and reports a company’s energy emissions as well as emissions for transport and production based on a kWh per unit of production or kWh per M2 of floor area. This is reported annually and filed with Companies House. It is aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 20% before 2030. We are able to assist with this reporting by advising and providing the necessary data for submission.
Climate Change Levy Relief – Certain business sectors are eligible for Climate Change Levy Relief as part of a climate change agreement. Targeted reduction in CO2 results are reported annually.
Heat Networks – Any building that supplies a conditioned space to tenants must report every four years with targets for improved efficiency and accurate methods of calculating tenant usage.
Smart Building Monitoring – There is an increasing requirement from investors for compliance with schemes such as GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) Institutional investors use GRESB data to monitor ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) performance in their portfolio. This requires sub metering and data collection, feeding into an analytical platform.
Low Carbon Generation – We submit requests to DNOs for export demand and engage in negotiation with suppliers in regards to FiT payments and export contracts.
EII Exemption – We have successfully achieved relief on RO and FiT for some high energy users that meet specific criteria.
EV Charging Projects – We are actively involved in all aspects of negotiations with distribution network operators for individual schemes ranging from a single 2 port intermediate charger to a bank of 200 rapid chargers for “last mile” delivery projects.

The tendering and evaluation process is increasingly more complex due to the introduction of charges under the Electricity Market Reform Programme. It is essential to understand which charges each supplier has included in their tender as the energy cost can be less than half of the final bill. A knowledge of market trends is fundamental to ensure that contracts are negotiated when the wholesale market is favourable.
Tenant recharges can be problematic and time-consuming with under-recovery of suppliers’ bill value being commonplace. Whether the sub-meters are read manually or remotely we can access the data and produce recharge statements in line with your accounting requirements. In the absence of sub-meters we can offer various billing options based on either floor areas or occupancy levels.
Whether you require a new supply or additional load, Emcon can assist from the initial enquiry to final completion. We would discuss with you or your developer your power requirements and submit quotation requests to the network operator and for any contestable works we can obtain 3rd party quotations. We can then arrange for registration and for the relevant metering to be installed.
When premises revert back to the landlord we can help identify the registered utility suppliers, inform them of the change of tenancy details, and arrange contracts in order to reduce costs If supplies have been disconnected we can arrange re-connection. Often prospective tenants will require confirmation of the existing gas, electricity and water capacities – we can source this information and also request quotations for supply upgrades.
This service can give any company the confidence that the gas/water/electricity bills that we validate have been checked against contracts that are in place or published charges that may apply, and all charges and levies applied are appropriate. Estimated reads will be highlighted and any errors brought to the attention of suppliers for resolution. We can code validations to match your accounting requirements.
Data analysis is a fundamental part of an energy efficiency programme and can highlight times when energy usage may be greater than expected enabling the implementation of energy savings targets. With distribution charges increasing especially during winter peak periods we can also highlight the effect this has on your bills and whether there is a cost-effective opportunity for energy management during these hours.
Legislation & Industry Updates
Emcon will ensure clients are aware of any changes in legislation that may impact on their business and advise accordingly. Recent changes being the early introduction of the Capacity Market, the Compensation scheme for RO and FIT charges for energy intensive users. From April 2017 we’ll see the opening of retail competition in the non domestic water market.
