FAQs

Enhance Efficiency with an Energy Management System (EMS)

Enhancing energy performance is crucial for any organisation. Energy Management Systems (EnMS) offer a structured framework to achieve this goal. By identifying key energy uses, setting performance targets, and implementing energy-saving measures, we ensure continuous improvement and monitoring of energy usage. This systematic approach not only reduces energy costs but also improves overall efficiency.

Minimising environmental impact is a priority for sustainable operations. Environmental Management Systems (EMS) are designed to help organisations achieve this by developing robust environmental policies, identifying key environmental aspects, and ensuring compliance with legal requirements. We establish and manage programs aimed at meeting environmental objectives, with continuous monitoring and regular reviews to drive ongoing improvement. Implementing an EMS supports sustainable practices and enhances your organisation’s environmental performance.

An energy audit is a thorough evaluation of energy consumption aimed at identifying inefficiencies and opportunities for cost savings. It includes data collection, site inspection, analysis, and recommendations for improving energy efficiency and reducing costs. This process helps businesses optimise energy use, enhance sustainability, reduce costs and comply with regulations.

Energy audits are typically conducted by registered SEAI energy auditors who specialise in evaluating and improving energy efficiency in buildings. These professionals have the expertise to assess energy usage, identify inefficiencies, and recommend cost-effective solutions. They can be independent consultants or part of specialized energy services companies.

The cost of a commercial energy audit varies based on the size and complexity of the organisation. Typically, it costs around 1% of your total energy bills. The potential for energy savings is estimated to be 13.5 times the cost of EACS energy audits. For example, an EACS energy audit costing €15,000 could identify savings of over €200,000.

Conducting a commercial energy audit involves planning and collecting data on energy use, inspecting the building’s systems and facilities, and analyzing the data to find inefficiencies. The process results in a report with specific recommendations for energy-saving measures, cost estimates, and an implementation plan. Monitoring ensures that the improvements achieve the expected energy savings.

To reduce energy consumption you can upgrade to energy-efficient lighting, optimise HVAC systems, improve insulation, use energy management systems, and implement regular maintenance. Additionally, encourage energy-saving practices among employees and consider renewable energy sources.
