Designing for Sustainability

Why do you need a Renewable Energy Statement?

Energy statements form part of the supporting documentation in a planning application.

They show how the development you are proposing will achieve the requisite standards for carbon dioxide emissions. Local authorities often set policies regarding how much they want your development to reduce its carbon emissions, while some planning officers set those reductions on a case-by-case basis. In an energy statement, you will specify how you will achieve those reductions by way of the energy hierarchy. This includes things like:

Energy efficiency measures: things you can implement to reduce the amount of energy the development will use once operational. Think glazing, insulation and airtightness.

Renewable technologies: identifying renewable technologies that could be applied in the development, such as solar panels, a heat pump or wind turbines.

On-site energy generation: this explores the option for things like decentralised energy systems or Combined Heat & Power (CHP). This depends on the availability of such things.

How can I meet the required emissions reductions?

The fundamental step is to work with a consultant from early on in the design process. This will help you explore different options for meeting compliance requirements. Naturally, you will want to achieve this in the most cost-effective manner possible, so it’s good to start with the thermal elements of the projects.

Once you have the completed design, you may want to utilise the services of an energy consultant to review alternative options for things like heating and cooling. It is also wise to consider renewable technology from early on so that those technologies can be implemented into the design at its conception.
What information would you need to produce an energy statement?

You will need to submit the following:

  • Architect drawings
  • Planning conditions
  • Proposed specifications or preferred options for the development

These things will enable us to make all the necessary calculations and studies in order to determine the best course of action for meeting the requirements.

Energy statements are required for both residential and commercial developments. The cost can vary between a few hundred pounds and a few thousand, depending on the specific attributes of the project.

What is a Landlords Electrical Safety Certificate?

It is a legal duty for landlords to ensure that their properties are safe for human habitation as set in the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018. This legislation set out how privately rented accommodation could be kept safe to occupy for the duration of the tenancy. According to data issued by the Home Office, electrical faults cause up to 10% of house fires in the UK. Any electrical installation neglected for a long time can increase the risk of a fire breaking out.

How often should I get an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)?

Recommended for domestic properties every 10 years, Focus 360 Energy can provide EICRs for Homeowners and Landlords to ensure no defects or deterioration. EICRs for business, commercial, and industrial premises must be done regularly, every 1-5 years, according to the use of the premises, to ensure all the electrics comply with the Health and Safety and Work Act
