Energy Management Systems
An Energy Management system provides the means to identify where your business is wasting energy and money. It is a set of activities and structures that encourage continuous improvement in the use of energy from all parts of the business.
Energy Saving Opportunities Scheme (ESOS)
The QSS group can assist companies in undertaking their initial energy audit. This first audit is due by December 2015 and has to be done as a minimum of once every 4 years. As part of the ESOS scheme, QSS are planning to offer an ESOS assessor service as well.
The International standard for energy management is being increasingly recognised as being an effective means of managing energy within an organisation. Attainment of the standard gives exemption from ESOS, by establishing an energy baseline and driving energy use reduction through target setting. The QSS group have experience of setting up ISO50001 systems within large businesses and leading them to achieving certification to the standard.
Energy Management and Smart Metering
The advent of smart metering within the UK has created a highly effective measurement infrastructure that can be used to accurately measure energy use within an organisation to a fine degree of granularity. Together with ISO 50001:2011, smart metering makes making substantial savings obvious and attainable. QSS have the capability to develop individualised ISO 50001:2011 systems and assist business with reducing costs. Our partner organisation RIQC can also certify compliance to the ISO 50001:2011 Standard.
