Energy Strategies

As part of any planning application and/or development strategy it is often necessary to include a detailed energy assessment to demonstrate how the targets for carbon dioxide emissions reduction are to be met within the framework of an energy hierarchy.

Energy assessments often must include the following details:

  1. Calculation of the energy demand and carbon dioxide emissions covered by Building Regulations and, separately, the energy demand and carbon dioxide emissions from any other part of the development, including plant or equipment, that are not covered by the Building Regulations at each stage of the energy hierarchy
  2. Proposals to reduce carbon dioxide emissions through the energy efficient design of the site, buildings and services
  3. Proposals to further reduce carbon dioxide emissions through the use of decentralised energy where feasible, such as district heating and cooling and combined heat and power (CHP)
  4. Proposals to further reduce carbon dioxide emissions through the use of on-site renewable energy technologies

EVORA is able to prepare energy strategies for planning applications and for compliance with Buildings Regulations Part L2A (non-domestic new build) and L2B (non-domestic existing buildings).

Our experts have significant experience in undertaking calculations and writing energy strategy reports for a variety of purposes including for inclusion in larger city-wide environmental and energy strategies.

” I firmly believe that EVORA are leaders in their field and they have opened my eyes to the value that a proactive approach to sustainability can bring.”
