GEM ENERGY - For Business Gr oup
Energy management includes planning and operation of energy production and energy consumption units. Objectives are resource conservation, climate protection and cost savings, while the users have permanent access to the energy they need.
SUPPLY POINT - DATA REVIEW
To confirm all charges have been in line with your consumption levels over the past six years, all the settings are correct and configured to the right level to correspond with the type of meter you have installed, if the configuration is incorrect the over charges attached to the supply point in question could reach excessive amounts, These overcharges could go unnoticed for long periods of time as non of these issues would be transparent on your energy invoices. This is money owed back to your business.

GEM ENERGY For Business - CEO STATEMENT ON PROCUREMENT -
ENERGY AUDITS -
The issue of energy consumption has been a growing interest across all industry sectors not only because of its immediate impact on production costs but also because of its considerable impact on environmental sustainability.
An improvement in energy efficiency within your organisation can potentially bring significant business benefits. With this in mind, GEM ENERGY has developed
energy audit services to help you find the best information for improvement opportunities. Energy audit services are a key part of our dedicated energy efficiency services and the first step towards your comprehensive energy management strategy.
Our audit provides you with a clear understanding of energy consumption in your buildings and facilities. Quantitative findings can provide substantial practical guidelines for:
- Continuous improvement in production efficiency
- Identifying cost saving opportunities in energy efficiency
Starting with the development of an energy consumption inventory detailed auditing activities will be conducted to identify buildings and facilities with particular focus on rationalising their energy profiles. Field measurements will be also taken to quantify critical operating parameters. Following the establishment of an energy consumption profile, the potential energy saving opportunities can be identified. Energy management strategy and particular energy reduction programs can be organised and planned with reference to energy audit results.
Our energy audit services can further provide a range of additional benefits. The findings of an energy audit can be a good reference for your management in supporting commercial decisions. You can acquire a sustainable reputation with your customers. As the law or policy for energy efficiency will be enacted sooner or later; earlier preparation can enhance your competitiveness.
A diverse range of industries have already experienced improved energy and production efficiency following our energy audit services. GEM ENERGY is the UK leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. As such, there is no organisation better equipped to deliver a robust solution that best suits your energy efficiency needs.
ESOS - ENERGY SAVING OPPORTUNITY SCHEME -
What next after ESOS?
All large UK businesses are affected by the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) regulations. Find out how your organisation can go beyond compliance, implement energy efficiency and cut costs now to take advantage of the real opportunities in ESOS.
As a mandatory program, all large UK businesses are affected by ESOS. GEM ENERGY provides a complete suite of services to help companies achieve compliance with the ESOS regulations in a cost-effective and efficient manner and turn energy-saving opportunities into a real business advantage.
We bring a wealth of experience to bear and have worked with dozens of companies to help them comply with ESOS, while reaping the business benefits of energy efficiency.
COMPLIANCE PROCEDURE -
Simply complying with the Regulations misses the point of ESOS: to identify opportunities to reduce energy use and to cut consumption, emissions and cost accordingly.
Whilst there is no statutory requirement to take action on these opportunities, not to do so is to reduce ESOS to a costly compliance exercise rather than a means to achieve real savings.
There are proven business benefits in addressing energy efficiency. Typically, 20% of a business' annual energy costs are wasted through the use of energy inefficient equipment. Our expert knowledge and tailored services are designed to make the implementation of energy reduction projects easy.
GUIDE TO IMPLEMENTING ENERGY SAVING OPPORTUNITIES -
This guide has been developed to support businesses in implementing the energy saving opportunities identified from ESOS assessments. Produced in collaboration with the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
It provides an overview of the steps businesses can take to maximise the impact of their ESOS assessment. It will help organisations follow best practice around the implementation of energy saving opportunities. This guide is particularly aimed at smaller ESOS participants, including those who may have less experience in implementing energy savings and/or may not employ a dedicated energy manager. However, the information in this guide may also be helpful to organisations with previous experience of implementing energy saving opportunities. It may also be helpful to organisations that have identified energy saving opportunities independently of ESOS.
WHAT IS ESOS ?
The ESOS Regulations 2014 bring into force Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive and mandate that all large businesses in the UK undertake comprehensive assessments of energy use and energy efficiency opportunities at least once every four years.
The deadline for the first compliance period is 5 December 2015, by which time qualifying businesses will have to achieve compliance with the regulations and notify the Environment Agency.
The criteria for inclusion to ESOS is not entirely straightforward, but essentially it applies to any large undertaking that carries out a trade or a business (typically a Company), and any corporate group where at least one member of the UK group meets the ESOS criteria.
• A large undertaking is one that employs at least 250 people or has an annual turnover in excess of €50 million and a balance sheet in excess of €43 million. Most public sector bodies are excluded, but some, such as many Universities may qualify.
To comply with the regulations, a ‘Lead Energy Assessor’ will need to conduct an ESOS Assessment to:
• Measure your total energy consumption for buildings, industrial processes and transport
• Identify areas of significant energy consumption, accounting for at least 90% of your total energy consumption
• Identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations for areas of significant energy consumption
• Report compliance to the Environment Agency
Organisations may not need to undertake the Assessment if are fully covered by ISO 50001.
We are also working with organisations to help them achieve ISO 50001. Call our advisor on - 01207 664311 or e mail [email protected] to find out more about these services.
