Concrete steps to saving
Energy Scan Your organization is carefully assessed by a certified expert advisor (EPA). The advisor looks at your insulation, facilities and lighting. The average duration of a visit is just one hour.
Energy Saving Advice The results are presented to you in a comprehensive report. This can be done at the location level or at the head office or district level. The report highlights what the saving possibilities are, how much these measures will reduce energy use and what investments are needed. You will also get insight into the associated payback periods.
Support in Implementing Advice Experts from the Climate Neutral Group offer you support in planning and implementing the energy saving advice. We use our expertise from the selection of suppliers and the request for quotations up to and including the installation of energy saving measures. From our experience, 40% of the locations we have advised start using the energy saving measures within one year.
What are the benefits for you?
Collective purchasing – purchasing advantage
The Energy Saving Programme has already been introduced at 4000 organizations, a powerful collective that is recognized by suppliers of energy saving devices, such as Technische Unie and Philips. This has translated into purchasing advantages and access to sustainable solutions that were until very recently only economically appealing for large organizations.
You comply with all laws, regulations and obligations
According to the Dutch Environmental Protection Act, companies with an energy use that is above 25,000 m3 of natural gas and/or more than 50,000 kWh of electricity must take all possible energy saving measures that have a payback period of five years or less. The Energy Saving Programme meets the requirements of this law, which is increasingly being enforced by municipalities. It is also possible to make an action plan for your energy use for the coming 4 years.
You will be guided in the planning and implementation of the plan.
We are aware of possible subsidies and the Energy Investment Allowance (EIA). If you wish, we can submit the applications.
You save and earn immediately
Priority is given to the measures with the best Return on Investment (ROI). You can tell your stakeholders all about it through, for example, your CSR or sustainability report. You are ready for the future. By making buildings more energy efficient, your building performs better and becomes more attractive for possible buyers and renters, who are becoming increasingly selective.
Unique: Also available for ‘heavy users’
An Energy Saving Programme for companies with an electricity use of more than 200,000 kWh and a natural gas use of more than 75,000 m3 is also possible.
“The Energy Saving Programme is clear, practical and effective in its simplicity. The energy scan on location, the resulting advice and the guidance made it a completely carefree process to saving energy and costs.”
