REMOTE & PART TIME ENERGY MANAGER
Here at GAS, we understand that many organisations do not have the time, resource or skill set to manage their energy in-house. To enable sites to undertake this vital function, we have developed our Remote Energy Manager Service. This will utilise the data received by the M&T system, and produce monthly reports to the end user identifying and quantifying all consumption within the month. This will compare consumption with previous periods, identify and explain any anomalies and indicate how the site is operating according to any pre-set targets.
Depending on the nature and size of your business, you may not require an energy manager on a full-time basis. With our part-time energy manager service, we provide organisations with the option of purchasing ‘blocks’ of time (for example 12-24 days per annum) and the Energy Manager will use this time, along with the data provided from the monitoring and targeting system, to effectively manage your consumption levels.
COMPLIANCE & ENERGY RELATED TRAINING
We have the skills and qualifications in-house at GAS to assist you in achieving any compliance related measures such as ESOS, EU ETS, Climate Change Agreements and the CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme.
We can also provide bespoke energy related training to your staff to help them understand the importance of energy efficiency. Generally, training can be provided on two levels:
- Beginners: General course for all employees on energy use, including how it affects the cost of running your business and the impact it will have on the environment.
- Advanced: A comprehensive training programme aimed at real “Energy Champions” and designed to give staff the skills and knowledge to manage energy effectively.
