    Benefits of using DES Energy

    DES Energy can provide our expertise to ensure you are fully compliant with these often-confusing obligations. We help you to de-risk by delivering your SECR report, allowing you to focus on your day-to-day business.

    Failure to comply with SECR regulations could incur financial penalties for your organisation.

    Who needs to comply

    The qualifying conditions are met by a company or LLP in a year satisfying two or more of the following criteria:

    • Turnover £36M+
    • Balance sheet TOTAL of £18M+
    • 250+ Employees

    Reporting framework

    If you qualify, you will need to report your UK energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions relating to gas, electricity and transport, as well as an intensity ratio and information relating to your energy efficiency action.

    Make a meaningful difference

    Those organisations that take a proactive and progressive approach to SECR will be the ones that see the biggest benefits.

    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a bedrock for many businesses, and SECR is a real opportunity to shout about sustainability – but only if action is taken to improve energy efficiency throughout the year.

    SECR Process

    The SECR process can be confusing for many, see below the key points.

    1. Scope

    SECR requirements are reviewed and scoped for your organisation (working to SECR Regulations and Guidance) by undertaking a review of your company structure for any companies, which may meet the criteria.

    2. Gap analysis

    Review your current energy and carbon reporting and comparing against SECR requirements. We identify any gaps including any data held, intensity ratio or methodology & prepare an Action Plan.

    3. Data Management

    We will then collect energy efficiency information for the intensity ratio & identify and follow agreed methodology. It is important to verify the data to ensure it is correct and accurate.

    4. Methodology

    We apply agreed methodology using relevant conversion factors to allow for the completion of your calculations for energy consumption and carbon emissions. If previous year’s data is available, we undertake a trend analysis.

    5. Reporting

    We undertake a sanity check to ensure that your prepared submission meets all the applicable SECR requirements. The Report will be signed off by a Board Director (or partner) and included in your Accounts reported to Companies House.
