Display Energy Certificates (DECs) and Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs)
DEC’s are legally required for all publicly accessed buildings over 500m2, including schools, and provide information on operational energy use disclosed through the prominent display of the certificate. In addition, an EPC is required, on property transactions and provides information ranging from how the building has been constructed to providing a theoretical rating based on assumed patterns of use.
Our team of accredited assessors not only ensure regulatory compliance but can also add value by also providing guidance and advisory reports on potential improvements to data collection and energy reduction strategies.
Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRCEES) administration and monitoring
CRCEES is mandatory for many organisations and Norse Energy offers a complete management service to interrogate, manage and store the information required to underpin the commitment. We already carry out year-on-year management for many organisations and have done so since its inception. We offer:
- A fully adaptable and variable service so you can receive a complete CRCEES service or have the freedom to pick elements required
- Data services managed in house
- The expertise, experience and economies of scale for a comprehensive, best value service.
Energy bureau, management of data, monitoring and reporting services
We use various energy monitoring and targeting systems, to host and collate energy consumption and carbon emissions data together with associated costs to an increasing portfolio of schools. We currently record meter readings, costs and consumption and wherever possible, the half hourly profiles of each supply either from mandatory half-hourly settled meters or voluntarily installed automatic meter reading.
Bill monitoring and validation remains an effective process to facilitate recovery of overcharged costs and has provided significant cost savings for a number of our clients that would otherwise have gone unnoticed.
In collating energy data we recognise that customer processes and system requirements vary significantly hence we employ a range of validation techniques from manual checking of paper invoices through to full Electronic Data Interchange verification of data provided by energy suppliers. As well as receiving customer data directly from framework suppliers we also obtain authorisation from building users, not on central contracts, to obtain and validate invoice data on their behalf.
