The team can deliver a range of comprehensive management services, as well as one off bespoke consultancy projects.
We provide the following services;
Climate Change Agreement Management (CCA)
Climate change agreements (CCAs) are voluntary agreements that contain targets for certain industry sectors to increase energy efficiency or reduce CO2 emissions.
If you hold a CCA, you’re eligible to claim a discount to the Climate Change Levy charged on your energy bills — 90% on electricity, 65% on other fuels.
LG Energy can assist with every part of the CCA process, from the initial application and benchmarking, to carrying out energy audits and putting a reduction plan in place. From there was can monitor and report the CCA’s progress with energy reviews and review surveys, to ensure you’re receiving the bill reductions you are entitled to.
Carbon Reduction Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC)
The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme is designed to encourage large organisations to reduce CO2 emissions through energy efficiency measures.
As your energy consultant, we bring our extensive knowledge and expertise to assist you with CRC. Our team specialises in taking away the bulk of the data collection, validation and reporting of emissions — we will do all the reporting, ordering of allowances and surrendering of allowances on your behalf. All you be required to do is to give us approval at various points when prompted by us.
European Union Energy Trading Scheme (EU-ETS)
The EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) was set up in 2005 and was one of the key policies introduced by the European Union to help to reduce man made greenhouse gas emissions cost-effectively.
It works on a “cap and trade basis” by putting a limit on overall emissions from covered installations; this cap is reduced over time so that total emissions fall. You can buy, sell and trade emission allowances as needed.
After each year your organisation must surrender enough allowances to cover all emissions, otherwise heavy fines are imposed. Conversely, if you successfully reduce your emissions, you’re able to keep the spare allowances to cover future needs or else sell them to another company that is short of allowances.
Knowing it’s a particularly complex process, LG Energy will support you at every step of the way, from the application and registration stage and setup of data collection, to the actual calculation of emissions and report submission.
Mandatory Emissions Reporting (MER)
It is mandatory for UK quoted companies to report on their annual greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) as part of their annual Directors’ Report. Once your emissions have been reported, you are then able to set targets to reduce them. Defra (UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) has estimated that reporting will contribute to saving 4,000,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions by 2021.
LG Energy can advise, provide reports, audit MER and provide a full MER data process and reporting service.
Energy Savings Opportunities Scheme (ESOS)
ESOS is a mandatory energy audit scheme that states all large enterprises (non-SMEs) must carry out regular energy audits to promote the update of cost-effective energy efficiency measures. Large enterprises are businesses with 250 employees or more, as well as an annual turnover exceeding €50 million and an annual balance sheet total exceeding €43 million.
LG Energy can take care of energy audits for you, including data analysis, site surveys, energy reduction recommendations, action plans, reporting and a post-reporting presentation.
Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPC/DEC)
The principal objective of the EPBD is to promote the improvement of building energy performance through cost-effective measures. This is achieved through establishing methodology to calculate the energy performance of buildings; setting minimum energy performance requirements for new and refurbished buildings; implementing regulations that require inspections of boilers and heating systems; and making energy performance certificates available when buildings are constructed, sold or rented out.
LG Energy will assist in carrying out EPC/DEC certification, from the site survey and data analysis to the EPC calculations and lodging of the report.
If you know that your business could use the guidance and knowledge of a team who lives and breathes energy, please get in touch today and let us help you.
LG Energy’s wide reach means that we have extensive knowledge of European markets, as well as those within the UK.
