Compliance and Risk Management

Anthesis can support your business to ensure energy and carbon compliance within the markets that your business operates. We have specialist consultants located across the world who are able to support and advize to ensure compliance with national schemes.

Through detailed energy reporting we outline the optimal route to compliance and support our clients through the design, install and optimization of new or existing energy systems. Below are just some of the regulations and standards which we’ve helped our clients meet.

Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (EU)

The Energy Efficiency (Private Rented Property) (England and Wales) Regulations 2015, commonly known as the Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards, or MEES, are a set of legal requirements that aim to improve the energy efficiency of commercially-rented properties across the UK.

Display Energy Certificates (UK)

We provide Display Energy Certificates and Advisory Reports for public buildings. All public buildings with a floor area exceeding 250m2 that are frequently visited by the public require a Display Energy Certificate (DEC).

Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (UK)

The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme in the UK, requiring large organizations to undertake energy audits every four years. ESOS is driven by the EU Energy Efficiency Directive so there are equivalent schemes to undertake efficiency audits across all EU member states. The scheme incorporates all organizational energy consumption from buildings, processes and transport.

Heat Networks (Metering & Billing) Regulations (UK)

The Heat Network Regulations apply to all businesses and individuals that supply and charge for heating, cooling or hot water via a liquid distribution system. We help organizations understand and meet these Regulations.

Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency (UK)

The CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme (formerly known as the Carbon Reduction Commitment) is a UK Government administered energy scheme aimed at cutting the carbon output of large energy users in the public and private sector. The scheme affects over 20,000 organizations which are responsible for around 10% of the UK’s emissions.

Energy Company Obligation (UK)

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is a government energy efficiency scheme in Great Britain to help reduce carbon emissions and tackle fuel poverty. The legislation places an obligation on energy suppliers of a certain size to meet carbon reduction and fuel saving targets within a given period.

Federal carbon pricing scheme (Canada)

In 2016 the Government of Canada announced a national price on carbon with the Pan-Canadian Approach to Pricing Carbon Pollution (the benchmark) to ensure that carbon pricing applies to a broad set of emission sources throughout Canada.
