Inspired by our own journey towards decarbonising our energy use, EA Technology learnt many lessons, which we thought would be beneficial to share with other organisations interested in this topic and considering following in our approach, but unsure of where to start.

Information to help the decarbonisation of commercial premises is hard to find, not least because the building fabrics are so varied and energy usage patterns can vary significantly depending on the nature of the business occupying the building. This becomes even more difficult when considering buildings of a similar age to our Headquarters building, which were not designed with energy efficiency in mind.

There are many technological routes that can be taken; indeed, the number of choices can make the topic seem quite daunting.  The path that each organisation takes will be unique, driven by their circumstances, for example, the type of building, whether it is owned or leased and the company’s investment drivers.

Ultimately, what works for one company may not be effective for another. This website is designed to help share the learning that the team gathered, hopefully presenting the information in a way that will help guide the reader through the thought processes we followed. It aims to help you identify the most relevant solutions to your building and organisation.
