Since 2011, Capita and Inteb Managed Services (Inteb MS) have worked together to deliver the Energy Manager Programme (EMP). An annual review of energy consumption data identifies the highest consumers and these are selected for the EMP.
The largest consumers with most opportunity to save have received an onsite energy audit and report. The results are presented in a live Energy Action Plan in EnWorks software, designed by Inteb MS, and discussed with the property management team each quarter to confirm responsibilities and timeframes for implementation. These plans are also used to influence service charge budgets and associated discussions with Asset Managers and tenants.
- Up to 16% CO2 savings per annum at the portfolio level, with year on year reductions since 2011.
- 2.5% per annum has been achieved through simple changes to settings and timers.
- Three month payback period identified for upgrading common parts lighting from low efficiency fluorescents to LEDs with PIR sensors can pay back and reduce maintenance costs for years.
The programme was shortlisted for the 2015 Property Week Sustainability category.
