In this article we identify some key measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in buildings and maintaining good indoor air quality.
In this article we provide a summary from the March 2020 Environment Agency ESOS Phase 2 newsletter, focussing on ESOS compliance and the compliance audit.
In this article I share my thoughts and experience on Planned vs Planned Preventative Maintenance in commercial buildings and the impact it has on system efficiencies, indoor air quality and evironmental quality.
New air filtration and clean Indoor Air Quality Standards deliver an important step forward to improve control of air quality in buildings. This article by Peter Dyment of Camfil explains recent changes in the British, European and World technical standards relating to clean Indoor Air Quality and the air filter performance testing.
In this article we highlight the key amendments following the review of Directive 2010/31/EU on the energy performance of buildings (EPDB) and Directive 2012/27/EU on energy efficiency and the impact on TM44 Air Conditioning Inspections
The Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) framework of the UK Gov kicks off from April 2019. SECR replaces the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme from the end of the 2018/19 compliance year and increased Climate Change Levy charges will recoup lost CRC revenue.
We have received several requests for additional information following our recent post on whether a UK organisation which did not qualify as a large undertaking for ESOS Phase 1 but will satisfy the financial qualification thresholds for ESOS Phase 2 on the qualification date of 31 Dec 2018, qualifies for ESOS Phase 2.
The new ISO 50001: 2018 - Energy Management Standard was published in Aug 2018 and we explore the option of using it as an alternative route to ESOS Phase 2 compliance in the UK.
In this article we explain when a building requires a TM44 air conditioning inspection and who the responsible person is to ensure compliance with Part 4 of The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2012
We are often asked about the difference between TM44 Inspections and the revised F-Gas Regulations, and in this article, we highlight the key focus areas and requirements of both statutory inspections which impact air conditioning systems.
The number of ESOS Phase 2 enquiries have significantly increased over the last few months and are gaining in momentum, which is great but raises the question whether it is going to be another race to the bottom or will good business sense prevail?
In this article we review lessons learnt from ESOS Phase 1 and share our thoughts on how to get the most out of your ESOS Phase 2 journey.
Part 4 of The Energy Performance of Buildings (Certificates and Inspections) (England and Wales) Regulations 2012, as amended, sets out the requirements for air conditioning inspections in England and Wales.
