Anthesis’ in-depth, estate-wide energy efficiency analysis and business case development was invaluable to us. The work programme and package of measures they put together had a combined payback period of less than five years and included our building energy management system, lighting, heating, cooling and more. The service and advice we received was highly professional and of great benefit to the Trust.”

  • Audits to identify energy saving opportunities across the entire estate.
  • Detailed assessment of the costs, benefits and practicalities of implementation to identify the opportunities with the greatest savings potential.
  • The production of multi-disciplinary business cases to support the Trust’s application for Salix funding.
  • Preparation of funding applications, including detailed specifications across LED, BMS, AHU refurbishment, compressed air, burner optimisation and free cooling.
