New regulations come into force on 1 April 2019
Global resource management company, Veolia, has launched a new range of energy services to help organisations achieve compliance with the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) scheme that comes into force 1st April 2019. Designed to help cut energy use and carbon emissions the services include a wide range of monitoring, auditing, reporting and energy efficiency recommendations which are backed by on site implementation using Veolia’s energy teams.
Set to replace the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) scheme the SECR will build on existing mandatory greenhouse gas emissions reporting requirements that already apply to UK quoted companies under the Companies Act 2006 (Strategic and Directors’ Reports) Regulations 2013, as well as the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) Regulations 2014.
To achieve compliance with the SECR regulations Veolia can provide consolidation of energy consumption for a company including scope 1 and 2 emissions, and optional scope 3 emissions, calculation of the equivalent carbon emissions in relation to energy consumption and relevant intensity ratio, energy efficiency auditing to define energy conservation measures, and reporting on carbon emissions and energy conservation measures.
The new services add to Veolia’s existing range of services designed specifically to implement cost effective energy efficiency measures that reduce carbon emissions, take action on efficient energy utilisation and move towards carbon neutrality. Working across all sectors, from commercial and public to retail, healthcare, education, and manufacturing the company is able to handle all elements of an organisation’s energy requirements – from the smart energy monitoring system, Hubgrade, which can monitor and control energy, water and waste flows, to supply, management and emissions trading and onsite upgrades requiring plant design, and installation. These combined with long term maintenance will keep savings on track and can also guarantee them and work towards achieving the ISO 50001 energy management standard.
Richard Kirkman, Veolia’s Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, said:
“Achieving compliance is not only key to business success but more importantly gives a route to reduce energy use, cut carbon emissions and deliver real cost savings. Enabling businesses to become more sustainable, and helping to deliver real gains for their bottom line, is a key factor and our energy services can play a major role in meeting these aims. By delivering guaranteed results that both reduce carbon emissions and build long term energy resilience we can help to lower carbon footprint and meet climate change targets.”
Currently saving over 400,000 tonnes of carbon for its UK energy customers each year, the new service is the result of Veolia’s expertise as a global energy services provider, and is based on the best global experience gained across energy management and energy performance contracts that manage over 450 MWe of low carbon electricity generation and 2,300 MWth of heat supply.
