This project was to design and implement a portfolio
wide energy management system designed to identify and delivery
energy savings across the portfolio and in particular, at the
larger 22 multi-let offices and shopping centres.
The client wanted to reduce the energy consumption and CO2
emissions associated with the landlord plant and equipment across
its portfolio. In order to support the client's objectives,
property surveyors and facility managers would need to implement
the energy action plans developed.
A desktop survey of each property was undertaken which
identified where the following savings can be made:
- 2.5% per annum achieved through simple changes to settings and
- An additional 2.5% with a small amount of capital expenditure
with an average payback period of two years
- An additional 5% saved through tenant engagement and further
Energy calculations were completed on each property which
identified both generic and property specific recommendations for
improvement, with indicative costs , financial and CO2 savings.
Action plans were created for 22 of the highest energy consuming
properties with prioritised recommendations.
Energy workshops were formed which included the property
surveyors and facility managers. Workshops introduced the action
plans to key stakeholders whilst increasing their knowledge and
skills to assist implementing the actions on site, and aid in
monitoring of utilities consumption against baseline and
recommendations. Consequently, the client's quarterly reporting
cycle showed progress against the recommendations within the action
The Energy Management Programme delivered CO2 saving of 16%
across the properties in 2011 versus the 2010 baseline. It has
identified opportunities to save natural resources, reduce CO2
emissions and save future costs for the client.
