Launch of the Energy Management Hub and EMA Energy Awareness Course

Category: ,

The Low Energy Company (LEC) 1 Energy Awareness training course is a course developed by the Energy Managers Association (EMA) as the first stepping stone in embedding energy efficiency training within organisational practices and establishing it as a national standard across all industries.This course focuses on raising employees’ awareness about their energy use.

Upon completion of the course candidates will understand:
– What and how much energy is used in the workplace
– How that energy use can be assessed
– Their own role using energy more efficiently
– Reducing unnecessary energy use in the workplace

The EMA (LEC) 1 course will help organisations to strengthen their commitment to strategically decrease energy consumption and ultimately energy cost. By completing the course employees will gain useful and transferable skills that can be applied in the workplace as well as in a domestic environment.

Organisations training a significant proportion of their employees in this LEC 1 course will achieve LEC Bronze, Silver or Gold status, recognition awarded by the EMA.

EMA Energy Management in Practice – LEC 3 Training Programme

Category: , ,

An Energy Manager performs an essential role in ensuring a company or organisation meets its energy, carbon and water reduction responsibilities within the context of wider sustainability imperatives – and the need for continual improvement. They need to be technically aware, numerate, have good communication skills both with senior management and energy end-users – and be keen to broaden and continually improve their existing knowledge and skills.

The EMA has developed a modular training programme that equips individuals with the minimum knowledge needed to operate effectively as an Energy Manager in the workplace. During this session three energy managers who deliver a range of LEC 3 courses will discuss the benefits of undertaking this EMA training programme to expand energy management skills and knowledge, and aspire to become EMA Recognised Energy Manager.

Monitoring of Business Energy Performance for Fit-out Redevelopment Potential and Behaviour Change – a case study

Category: ,

In 2014, Heathrow’s Terminal 2 Retail Fit-out Sustainability Project won the ‘Most energy efficient project of the year’ at the Environment and Energy Awards. This was for Discovery Mill’s approach and the work the Heathrow team collaboratively achieved with Heathrow’s retail business partners in reducing energy usage in T2 Retail. Predicted energy savings were assessed to be 17-24% compared to existing Terminal 5 operations, with additional direct savings for Heathrow through reduced central building plant consumption as well as reduced infrastructure costs.

Now it’s been over a year since the new Terminal 2 has been open and operational, we have been monitoring the energy performance of some of the restaurants within T2 and across the rest of the airport to assess energy performance and future potential. This is also feeding into a new behaviour change programme that the Heathrow Commercial team has launched with the Sustainable Restaurants Association: ‘Ingredients for success’.

James Brittain, the Discovery Mill and James Wright, representing the client, will share some of the lessons learnt and opportunities highlighted both during the T2 fit-out project and the more recent monitoring study.

Energy Efficient and Sustainable Buildings for the Future

Category: , , ,

NG Bailey, the UK’s largest independent engineering, IT and facilities services business, has worked in partnership with Land Securities to deliver an energy reduction scheme, which resulted in a nine per cent fall in energy use at a number of key London sites – including 80-100 Victoria and New Street Square. The scheme will now be rolled out across a number of other properties in the Land Securities portfolio.

Through a joint presentation NG Bailey and Land Securities will look at how collating and analysing building data can help businesses to reduce the environmental and commercial impact of energy usage through a focus on asset optimisation, asset upgrade and behavioural change.

Behaviour Change – it’s not all about turning off the lights

Category:

In principle most people think saving energy is a good idea. But things get in the way – budgets, timelines and knowledge to name a few. UCL’s sustainability team have used a £1.2 billion estate investment programme to embed energy saving in organisational processes, approvals and contracts, making energy efficiency a core requirement and not a ‘nice to have’. Joanna explains how she has used rigorous governance and effective relationship building to shift attitudes across the institution, with engineers, maintenance staff, lab managers and architects all considering energy in their day to day activities and suggesting new initiatives to reduce consumption.
