SECR? Don't forget to ask the Pump

Posted by Andrew Boothroyd on Jun 25, 2019 8:57:44 AM

With the introduction of the UK Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) policy, the number of companies needing to measure and provide usage data to the UK government will almost treble. Under the earlier Carbon Reduction Commitment around 4,000 businesses had to report their energy and emissions data, but the change in criteria will mean that the requirement will now affect around 11,900 companies. The decision aligns the government’s goals with the G20 Financial Stability Board's Taskforce on Climate-related financial disclosures.

The Armstrong Design Envelope product range includes embedded software for monitoring and reporting performance after installation which collects and reports data more accurately than a flow meter. So investing in replacement pumps (and harnessing their connectivity and in-built performance management technology) can provide the increased level of environmental reporting data necessary to meet the demands of the SECR policy, whilst making immediate improvements in energy efficiency.

Cutting the Cost of Inaction

It is time to rethink how energy upgrade projects should be managed. It frequently takes as long as a year and a half to reach the implementation stage of a capital expenditure energy saving project. Typically, the first 6 months are spent collecting data, months 6 to 9 involve a data analysis phase, then technology solutions and a business plan are developed in months 9 to 12. Over the next 6 months stakeholders make their decisions until (18 months after initial discussions) the project is implemented. During that year and a half, not a single kW of energy is saved. With the latest generation of Armstrong Design Envelope (DE) pump technology, however, building owners and occupiers could be saving energy from day 1, month 1 of the initial discussions.
