Many Local Planning Authorities across the UK require an Energy and Sustainability Statement as part of the planning application for all build projects. The requirements include a sustainability report that outlines the proposed development’s sustainability initiatives and how it will meet the Local Authorities standards and ensure Building Regulation Part L compliance.
An energy statement is used as a supporting document to a planning application, which considers:
- Energy and C02 targets
- Energy and C02 emission reduction targets
- Heating, lighting and ventilation specifications
- Building Fabric and energy efficiency
- Potential Renewable energy solutions
- SBEM and SAP calculations
To help you meet these requirements, our team collaborates with key design team members, offering support from early design stages and advice on the feasibility and integration of renewable technologies to enable our clients to install the most cost-effective energy solutions that meet the carbon reduction and cost targets.
