Energy Statements provide detailed calculations for base-line energy use, an assessment of energy efficiency measures and analysis of suitable on-site low carbon and renewable energy technologies to minimise CO2 emissions and operating costs. Energy Statements are required by many Local Planning Authorities to show how a development will meet the local sustainability policies for energy and CO2 reduction.
SRE’s in house team of experienced energy experts provide bespoke Energy Statements to accompany both outline and detailed planning applications and can also be tailored to comply with and support environmental assessment requirements including BREEAM.
