The main issue at the moment, amongst myriad others in this veil of tears we call energy management, is SECR; the first stage is rapidly coming up, and from what we have observed and heard, very little has been done by companies to prepare for this.

Welcome to our latest magazine, with useful news and articles, for your delight and delectation.

The main issue at the moment, amongst myriad others in this veil of tears we call energy management, is SECR; the first stage is rapidly coming up, and from what we have observed and heard, very little has been done by companies to prepare for this. We hope that they are not aiming to go for the same last minute panic that plagued ESOS. Especially, as failure to provide a fully worked up SECR report in your annual accounts to Companies House means your accountant cannot sign off on them, and how many accountants will sign off on something that has not been audited?

We have an interesting article on IT issues with ‘dead data’ on servers – how much energy is used to store data that is redundant, out of date or just plain irrelevant and how many old emails do you have archived that no longer have any meaning? – Or when was the last time you defragged your server, to get rid of old programmes and apps?

The article on barriers to energy efficiency will ring bells with experienced Energy Managers and serves as things to look out for to new and upcoming Managers. We hope that you find this magazine useful, and a good starting point for information.

Enjoy!
