New Service Will Help Commercial Property Occupiers Reduce Energy Bills

Posted on 6 August, 2012 by Jodee Redmond

UK owners or occupiers of commercial properties can get advice to help them keep energy costs down. The Carbon Trust Implementation Services and real estate adviser Savills have teamed up to help occupiers reduce carbon emissions and cut costs.

Targeted occupiers include those in the following sectors:

  • Hospitality
  • Industry
  • Leisure
  • Retail
  • Warehousing

Non-residential buildings account for 18 per cent of the UK’s total carbon footprint. The Carbon Trust estimates that commercial property owners and occupiers can make changes which will result in a minimum of £4bn of energy savings to the UK economy by the year 2020.

The adviser team includes specialists who can offer advice on various topics, including heating, lighting, and ventilation. The specialists can also offer assistance on the best way to use high-efficiency air conditioning. Making the right decisions about these essential services can help a property owner cut fixed expenses significantly. The service also includes a timeframe for the return on investment and assistance to develop a business plan.

Advisers can provide property owners with a list of accredited suppliers to streamline the tendering process. Customers will be matched with contractors with the right skills who can perform the work at an affordable price.

Does it make sense to adopt a more energy-efficient approach to commercial property management? According to the Carbon Trust, a typical retail store can reduce its lighting bill by up to 70 per cent by simply installing new light fixtures and controls on the system to limit the amount of energy used.

Clients who use this system will be able to gain access to a financing program the Carbon Trust has set up through Siemens. In many cases, the repayment costs can be completely offset by the energy savings gained after building upgrades have been completed.
