How we can help with Energy Management Systems

As we move towards a net-zero carbon economy, ensuring that energy efficiency and robust energy management is embedded throughout the business is more important than ever.

Our services will assist you in developing, implementing and maintaining an Energy Management System (EMS) to turn raw data into useful management information which can be used to drive and monitor energy reductions.

A high-quality system will considerably alleviate the reporting burden as the demand for energy and climate information grows. Often locating and tracking all the energy data that is needed and collating it can feel like an insurmountable task, but we have considerable experience helping large and complex organisations to not only do this, but also generate a sizeable return on investment.

Through robust data collection and detailed analysis, EcoAct will transform raw data into useful management information which can be used to drive and monitor energy reductions.

We can also help to arrange appropriate finance for all energy conservation measures, ensuring no up-front capital costs, resulting in positive cash flows from day one.

Energy Management Systems (EMS)

Cost reductions

Reducing the long-term operating costs of your business by finding opportunities for implementing efficiency measures. Our energy management services go beyond basic data storage to include invoice validation, exception reporting and emerging technology review which have helped to drive additional cost savings.


Legislative compliance

The compliance landscape is continually shifting. Are you prepared to keep up with the changing demands? We can ensure you have the right systems and processes in place and support you to comply with current and future carbon and energy legislation such as ESOS, EU ETS and SECR, MCPD, MEES and anything else that arises in the future.


Protection against energy market changes

Becoming a more energy efficient business reduces your vulnerability to increasing energy prices, increasing levies as well as any future energy market volatility.

Better sustainability reporting

With robust energy data comes better reporting to your stakeholders, particularly if you are able to communicate your energy efficiency achievements. We can help install and manage a system that provides regular reporting, tailored to your needs. The work you do here could also provide the groundwork for going beyond compliance and setting (and achieving) ambitious climate targets.

The success of the programme is the result of a collaborative partnership between EcoAct and our own teams. From the energy auditors to the consultants providing support behind the scenes, EcoAct has proven to be an extremely valuable partner. Their expertise and ability to work with our teams has enabled the identification and implementation of cost-effective and practical energy efficiency measures which have brought true value and delivered very significant cost-savings to the business.

What is energy management?

Energy management is working to optimise your organisation’s energy use to reduce costs and emissions.

Why is energy management important?

Effective energy management can allow your organisation to achieve great cost savings, set ambitious targets and take bold action on climate change.

How do I get started with energy mangement?

The first step in getting started with your energy management is implementing an effective monitoring system to collect data on your existing energy use. From here you can work to implement energy efficiency improvements.
