Portfolio Energy Management Strategy delivers 3.6m kWh saving.
“At the end of Q3, portfolio usage was -2.6% against the baseline, with a predicted position of -3.6% at year end.”
EVORA has worked with DWS since 2015 to embed sustainability programmes across their European portfolio. As sustainability programmes matured, the opportunity to set a portfolio energy reduction target became apparent.
EVORA was challenged to implement a robust Energy Management Strategy, including development of a methodology for setting the first ever energy reduction baseline and target, and thereafter deliver upon all key components of the strategy.
EVORA developed a five-stage process to establish a clear and practical Energy Management Strategy, including the first ever energy reduction target for DWS in Europe.
The strategy benefited from our end-to-end service delivery excellence, as EVORA took primary responsibility for data management, completion of technical building audits, Monitoring & Targeting programmes and regular engagement with key stakeholders.
Buy-in was key to the success of the project. Through effective planning and clear execution, all parties involved were fully aware and supportive of their responsibilities to achieving the project goals
Through the completion of energy audits and creation of asset-level energy reduction plans, EVORA established a two-year 6% portfolio-wide energy reduction target. Eighteen months into the programme, portfolio usage was 8.4% below the baseline, with a predicted position of 9% under at year end. The programme has exceeded expectations and led to the following achievements:
