The coming decade will be a period of rapidly changing policies and regulations concerning the energy efficiency and CO2 emissions of new development. Element Energy combines in-depth knowledge of the policy framework with engineering expertise and understanding of commercial imperatives to deliver robust and flexible advice on energy strategy.
Changes to Building Regulations, the introduction of Zero Carbon policy, and the emergence of sustainability as a key priority in the planning system, will increasingly require tomorrow’s buildings to use energy more efficiently and emit less carbon. We help developers translate these requirements into deliverable energy solutions for new developments. We are experts in low-carbon building design and the development of low-carbon energy strategy. Our solutions consider the role of low-carbon generation at all scales, from microgeneration to community-scale energy infrastructure.
We are often engaged at the master planning stage, where we ensure that principles of low-carbon design and planning for a low-carbon energy supply are engrained from the outset. We are experienced at working within design teams to develop scheme designs and steer them through the planning system. We then continue to drive projects forward, advising on detailed design and procurement.
New ways of supplying energy require new thinking on commercial delivery. We make sure our strategies are cost-effective, and underpinned by a plan for commercial implementation. We advise our clients on the opportunities arising from evolving energy markets and the government incentive regime, and help them devise optimised commercial models for their projects and businesses overall.
