Please refer to our list of energy efficiency services listed below.
Energy Efficiency Surveys & Assessments
We can help you devise a plan to achieve Net Zero by providing you with any of the following:
Asset Dilapidation Report:
Our highly qualified M&E surveyors can provide you with a comprehensive report indicating the condition of your assets, along with recommendations and budget costs to improve their efficiency or replace them
EPC / DEC Surveys:
If you are looking to sell or let your commercial property then we can provide you with an EPC or a DEC certificate as required to market the property. The rules are changing for commercial landlords on April 2023 as they will no longer be allowed to let their existing tenancies if they have an EPC rating of E or below. The minimum EPC E-rating only applies to newly agreed tenancies, however by April 2023, this will apply to new and existing lettings. By 2027, this will increase to a minimum C rating and by 2030 to a B rating. Commercial landlords should be mindful of these dates as retrofitting properties can be a timely and costly exercise.
BREEAM and LEED Assessments:
Looking for a globally recognised sustainability label for your building which makes a strong statement to your environmentally minded tenants and stakeholders? We can help by providing you with a BREEAM In-Use or LEED assessment and support you throughout the accreditation process. It’s proven that buildings with BREEAM and LEED certification emit less carbon, are more appreciated by tenants, and achieve higher revenue yields than traditional buildings.
Net Zero Road Map Report:
Concerned about Net Zero but not sure how to get there? We can provide you with a comprehensive assessment which identifies the best options for your building to achieve Net Zero. This includes efficiency and energy reduction measures, fabric works, renewable energy installations and M&E plant retrofits. Our report includes a budget and a timeline which acts as a business plan for any landlord or managing agent aiming to achieve Net Zero.
High Efficiency LED Installations
Swapping your lighting system for high efficiency LED lighting is a sure way to achieve savings for your bottom line and the environment. Replacing your old lighting system for high efficiency LEDs has the following advantages:
We install high efficiency LEDs on both external and internal lighting systems. We can also fit smart lighting sensors which will further enhance the efficiencies of the lighting installation.
What’s more is we can finance the up-front installation costs while saving you money on your electricity and maintenance costs from day one. We will fund and maintain the system typically under a 5-year operating lease whereby your new monthly lighting bills are lower than the leasing costs – leading to savings to your bottom line from the first month of install. We guarantee that the repayments never exceed the expected energy savings giving you peace of mind and leaving you with no excuse to not consider swapping your lighting system for high efficiency LED’s.
Solar Panel Installations
With rising energy costs, why not turn your empty roof space into a source of income while improving your energy ratings?
This is possible with solar panels.
Our turnkey offer includes:
We can also fund the entire project so that your business doesn’t incur any upfront costs – allowing your business to benefit from fixed energy prices and improved green credentials.
EV Charge Point Installations
What better way to turn a few parking bays into cash generating fuelling stations with EV charge point installations?
We install and maintain your Electric Vehicle (EV) Charge Points whereby we cover the upfront costs of the installation and provide you with an opportunity to earn a share in the profits of the electricity sold.
This includes preventative maintenance, vandalism cover and technology updates. All you need is a vehicle parking bay and we will do the rest.
Utility Usage Reporting
Ever wonder how your utility bills are calculated? We can help with fully customised utility usage reports which can help to unlock energy saving opportunities.
We can assist you in setting up your own reports which can vary from simple meter reading graphs to full energy measurement and verification (M&V) reports.
Our reports allow building owners to:
Our reports will depend on the data which can be retrieved from site. If this data is limited, we can advise on fitting sensors and installing / upgrading your Building Management System. We can also customise reports based on manually retrieved data.
Remote Monitoring & Management
In addition to periodic reporting and analysis, HFL can remotely monitor and manage your assets in real time – 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.
Remote monitoring allows an engineer to remotely manage a site without having to physically mobilise an engineer.
Remote monitoring capabilities will depend on the data which can be retrieved from site. If this data is limited, we can advise on data connection options, fitting sensors and installing / upgrading your Building Management System.

We can support you with the following M&E retrofits:
We can also provide you with a cost savings analysis. In addition, we can can finance the project under an operating lease agreement whereby we install and maintain the plant and your savings exceed the cost of the lease.
