Energy Audits
An energy audit is a recognised technique for identifying procedures and techniques to reduce energy costs.

The average saving achieved by Environmental Efficiency is 23% within a 15 month payback. One key to Environmental Efficiency's success in this area is that the company first identifies best practice for the sector and then examines how it can be implemented for the client.

The energy consultancy services also comprise feasibility studies, energy consumption benchmarking, project implementation, renewable energy and related consultancy.

Environmental Impact Assessments
Environmental Efficiency undertakes EIAs in all sectors and has specific expertise in quarries and housing developments. This work includes planning applications where necessary.

The company has assisted businesses with regard to creating and implementing EMS's to ISO 14001 - which have enabled them to meet the accreditation requirements of both NSAI and SGS. Assistance is also provided in obtaining grants from Enterprise Ireland.

IPC/IPPC Licence Application, Compliance and Maintenance
An IPC licence is a legal requirement for certain activities that exceed a defined threshold. For example, using more than 10 tonnes of organic solvents per year in coating operations (e.g. printing or paint spraying) requires an IPC licence. Environmental Efficiency can assist in all aspects of IPC/IPPC applications and reviews.
