What is an Energy Statement?
Latest planning policies across the UK will often now include sustainability targets for building projects. Each local authority has its own specific requirements but often you must demonstrate how these targets will be met, by the means of producing and submitting an energy statement to the planning authority.
Energy Statements are carried out and produced to determine how your project will meet the local authority specific requirement. Often this will mean going above and beyond building minimum regulation compliance to show that you have contributed a further improvement by a reduction in carbon emissions (CO₂) or energy (kWh).
Dependent on the requirement there are various ways and means of meeting the target, these can often be achieved by increased thermal performance of a building (Be Lean), better performing or more considerate building services (Be Clean) or the incorporation of renewable technologies (Be Green).
