UK Government Fifth Carbon Budget Published

GEP welcomes the Government’s publication of the Fifth Carbon Budget. Published on 29 June 2016, just a week after the UK voted to leave the European Union, the Fifth Carbon Budget provides reassurance to environmentalists and the energy industry that the UK is committed to tackling Climate Change and promoting a low carbon economy. The Fifth Carbon Budget will seek to cut carbon emissions by 57% by 2032 (based on 1990 levels) and will be working towards the UK’s overall goal of cutting carbon emissions by 80% by 2050, which was set the Climate Change Act 2008. The Government is clearly recognising that the Climate Change remains to be one the most significant long-term risks to the economy and the UK will still need to be progressive and dynamic in its approach to reducing carbon emissions. From a business perspective this announcement will reassure investors that the UK is a country where low carbon investment can flourish and as such, even in the wake of the Brexit, businesses should continue to implement carbon reduction measures and prioritise low carbon initiatives. Contact us to discuss your carbon reduction requirements.

The annual CRC reporting deadline is looming

If your organisation is required to report under the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme regulations, your annual report must be submitted and allowances purchased by 29th July. It is a statutory requirement that you carry out an audit of your CRC compliance each year. GEPEnv can help you with this process, either carrying out the audit on your behalf or by training your own internal auditors. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

The Heat Networks assessment tool has been withdrawn

The National Measurement and Regulation Office has withdrawn the tool for assessing whether the installation of heat meters for a property is viable. There is still a requirement to register with the NMRO if your organisation has a district heating or communcal heating or cooling system but the viability assessment does not need to be carried out at this stage. Registration needs to take place by 31st December 2015. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

ISO 14001:2015 – Managing the transition

The revision of ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems has now entered its final stage of revision and the new Standard is due to be published on 15th September 2015. There are a number of key changes to ISO 14001:2015 including:

  • Integration of the EMS into the business strategies of your organisation
  • Increased involvement of your leadership team;
  • Proactive initiatives toward improving environmental performance
  • Increased emphasis on risk management
Organisations currently certified to ISO 14001:2004 are granted a transition period after the publication of ISO 14001:2015 to migrate their environment management system to the new edition of the Standard. For more information on managing the transition from 14001:2004 to 14001:2015. Contact us for more information.

ISO 50001 Implementation Support

With the first phase of ESOS over, organisations need to start thinking about how they will comply with the next phases. Obtaining ISO 50001 certification is one of the more flexible compliance routes. We can help determine whether this is the right route for your organisation and can ensure that the necessary processes are in place to achieve certification.

Electricity Demand Reduction M&V

DECC have published the Measurement and Verification Manual for Phase 2 of the Electricity Demand Reduction Pilot Scheme. This explains options for metering and measuring the savings from electricity demand reduction projects and helps determine the most appropriate approach. It also explains how to complete the M&V summary and upload the required documents to the portal. GEP Environmental has four Certified Measurement & Verification Professionals who can help support your organisation to carry out the necessary measurement and compliance activities in order to be accepted in the EDR Auction. Contact us for more information.

Built Environment

Within the UK, the majority of businesses, public entities and individuals operate and live within urban environments. At least 80% of existing buildings are expected to continue in use beyond 2050. The challenge is to manage them so that they continue to offer the greatest value to their owners and users for as long as possible. Buildings can either be optimised in isolation or as part of an integrated community in terms of resource use and opportunity.

Whether its meeting compliance with building regulation or seeking to future proof investment, GEP Environmental can model and optimise building use, services and processes in order to identify the most efficient, cost effective and sustainable approaches to meeting owner and occupiers’ objectives.

Sustainable Heat and Power

Rising energy costs, carbon emission legislation and environmental responsibility are just some of the reasons why many organisations are choosing to source and operate more sustainable forms of heat and power generation. Not only do these technologies provide financial recompense in the form of RHI and FiTs; fuel sources and technology have significantly reduced in price with a growing number of suppliers and installers throughout the UK.

GEP Environmental can provide a complete end to end service in relation to sustainable heat and power. From assessing the technical and financial feasibility of your project, to assisting with applications for RHI, FiT; we are able to deploy the correct expert at the correct step within your project.

Resource Management

Resource management is the deployment of your resources as and when they are needed in an effective, timely and efficient manner. Robust management of water, goods, energy, fuel, materials and staff will ensure reduced financial and physical waste being created. This will in turn allow your organisation to divert money towards developing your business goals.

GEP Environmental can assist you with recognising resource efficiency opportunities and provide you with the right advice to help you realise those savings.

Data Monitoring and Verification

Data monitoring sits at the heart of good energy and sustainability practice. The regular tracking and recording of information relating to an entire business or single process will provide many benefits. It can indicate problems with a particular process, provide information that may help improve performance and help to determine savings from potential efficiency measures. Data monitoring and verification is key to the success of any energy efficiency project or opportunity such as energy performance contracts (EnPCs).

Compliance & Certification

There is an increasing amount of legislation requiring organisations to improve resource efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. In addition to saving onutility and procurement costs, failure to reduce emissions can lead to significant penalties.

GEPEnvironmental can help identify if your organisation needs to participate in emission reduction schemes and help ensure you are compliant with relevant carbon reduction and environmental legislation.

Implementation and Funding

Until recently the point of resource audits was to identify opportunities to help reduce resource consumption. The focus of advice and support has now changed. Many organisations understand the actions they can take but require implementation assistance in order to turn these projects into reality.

GEP Environmental’s implementation assistance can take many forms. Some organisations may require assistance with reviewing performance specifications for technical installations or reviewing and assessing the financial and environmental benefits of a potential project. Other organisations may wish to better understand what funding assistance packages may be available for their project from government or alternative sources.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Culture Change

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), or Corporate Responsibility (CR) as some prefer it, offers a new and valuable perspective on an organisation, both from within and outside.

Whether looking after the hard compliance, supply chain and business continuity issues, protecting and enhancing your reputation or just doing good risk and opportunity management, CSR is a practical way to identify and balance economic, social and environmental priorities. Seeking and maintaining this balance is a core requirement any sustainable development strategy.
