Welcome to e-Mission LTD. The energy assessment specialists
E-Mission is a multi-disciplined practice that can provide a suite of services from certification compliance, EPCs, DECs, and Part L Compliance for energy efficiency through to complex building modelling, air tightness and thermographic imaging to ensure your building fabric is performing as it should be.
At E-Mission we understand that business cannot afford to waste money and our singular aim when we set out on any project is to save you money and maximise your profitability. We are now fully qualified ESOS assessors and can manage your business through to compliance.
E-Mission have undertaken work for large commercial entities such as CBRE, Jones Lang Lasalle, Frank Knight, Savilles, Allsopps, London Asset Management and some of the biggest high street names such as Waitrose, Barclays, Santander, Tesco and many others. We have a breadth of experience across many sectors and can help your business better understand its energy spend. From there we can help you implement commercially viable energy saving opportunities and save you money.
As the rising cost of energy meets the pressure of environmental legislation and targets, energy management is becoming an increasingly vital part of both the private and public sectors. According to a recent CBI (Confederation of British Industry) report, 80% of companies consider energy efficiency a high priority. This may be of little surprise, since Defra estimates that UK business could save £4 billion every year through energy efficiency. The ongoing costs of energy should never be viewed as a fixed or inconsequential cost of business.
An energy audit is an important step for an organisation, whatever its size or type, wanting to improve its energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and cost and bring related environmental benefits. We will organise a systematic inspection and analysis of energy use and energy consumption of a site, building, system or organisation with the objective of identifying energy flows and the potential for energy efficiency improvements.
The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment and energy saving identification scheme for large undertakings (and their corporate groups). The scheme applies throughout the UK and we are already in phase 1. In simple terms, an ESOS Assessment requires participants to do three things:
- Measure your total energy consumption
- Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations.
- Report compliance to the Environment Agency (as the scheme administrator)
Building assessments can help us identify where high energy consumption occurs either through losses due to the fabric of the building or where there is in-efficient heating, cooling or lighting in place. We can then measure those losses and make recommendations on how to reduce your costs. We use full life cycle cost analysis with nett present values when making recommendations. Energy assessments are a legal requirement when a building is leased or sold and should be displayed in buildings over 500m2. We can help with all your certification requirements to ensure you are legally compliant.
DISPLAY ENERGY CERTIFICATES
A Display Energy Certificate (DEC) provides an overview of the annual energy consumption of a building based on data obtained from the gas, electricity and water meters. The certificate is accompanied by a mandatory advisory report which outlines potential measures for improving the energy performance of the building. The certificate must be replaced every year and a new advisory report generated every 7 years.
At present Display Energy Certificates are only required for buildings occupied by a public authority or an institution providing a public service to a large number of persons. However, the Government has announced its intention to review in the future whether this regulation should be extended to include private sector buildings occupied by commercial organisations and visited frequently by members of the public.
An SBEM, or simplified building energy model, provides an analysis of the energy consumption of a building. The SBEM calculates the monthly carbon dioxide emitted and energy used by a building given its construction, geometry, use, lighting equipment and HVAC. To obtain your SBEM ratings, please contact our offices.
ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES
These certificates are for all buildings and will be required whenever a building is constructed, rented or sold. The Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is broadly similar to the labels now provided with domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. Its purpose is to record how energy efficient a property is as a building. The certificate will provide a rating of the energy efficiency and carbon emissions of a building from A to G, where A is very efficient and G is very inefficient.
EPCs are produced using standard methods with standard assumptions about energy usage so that the energy efficiency of one building can easily be compared with another building of the same type. This allows prospective buyers, tenants, owners, occupiers and purchasers to see information on the energy efficiency and carbon emissions from their building so they can consider energy efficiency and fuel costs as part of their investment. An EPC is always accompanied by a recommendation report that lists cost effective and other measures (such as low and zero carbon generating systems) to improve the energy rating of the building. The certificate is also accompanied by information about the rating that could be achieved if all the recommendations were implemented.
INSPECTION OF AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS
TM44 : Inspection of Air Conditioning Systems. The guidance is primarily intended to support inspections which are carried out for compliance with the EPBD, but will also be useful to anyone who wishes to assess the energy effi ciency of an air conditioning system. Please contact our offices for more information.
