Following its introduction to parliament last year, the Energy Bill (now the Energy Act 2023) has received Royal Assent and is designed to bolster energy security and net zero.
The Act creates a new regime for energy production, as well as regulation of the UK energy market, to deliver clean energy, positively impact climate change and increase energy security and resilience.
The Act will help the UK to deliver net zero in a realistic and achievable way by 2050, making net zero targets part of the Government's everyday decisions.
According to Newcastle-based energy assessment experts, Green Zone Surveys, the act is a welcome step and an opportunity for UK businesses to improve their models and frameworks in a nationwide effort to deliver on the UK’s net zero ambitions.
Green Zone Surveys CEO, Callum Thompson, said: "Only by working together can the UK hope to achieve net zero ambitions, which may seem daunting for smaller businesses in particular.
“However, there are opportunities in place and here at Green Zone Surveys, we can help business to make their own, digestible commitments, by evaluating their environmental impact, performance and opportunities with a commercial energy audit, or carbon reduction report.”
An energy audit can determine how to invest in energy-efficiency technologies, to reduce energy use, lower carbon emissions and save money, by offering recommendations and allowing businesses to make informed decisions on what changes need to be made.
Meanwhile, for organisations with genuine net zero aspirations, creating and implementing a credible carbon reduction plan is a critical part of a sustainability programme.
Green Zone Surveys (UK) Ltd can provide Level 1, 2 or 3 energy audits in compliance with the methodology outlined in with ISO 50002 or BS EN 16247: 2012, as well as detailed carbon reduction reports, outlining carbon footprints and recommendations that benefit both your company and the environment.
As one of the UK’s longest established providers of building and energy compliance surveys, Green Zone has been there since the beginning and has worked alongside businesses of all different sizes in a variety of industries. This means you can breathe easy knowing you are working with professional, industry experts who have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the full compliance process.
