Energy saving can help Pubs survive

11th March 2010
<< back to news

With electricity costs being a major overhead for most pubs, landlords need to look at energy efficiency to cut bills. Roger Lawrie, partner at specialists in energy compliance, Envitae, points out that air conditioning can account for up to 50% of energy consumption and some landlords are unaware that legislation requires systems with cumulative output over 12kW to be independently inspected by 4th January. This must be carried out by a government approved energy assessor and is additional to any other service or maintenance. Mr Lawrie goes on to say that assessors are finding that inspection reports make recommendations that in most cases will save energy.

Many of the larger pub chains already have plans in place to ensure inspections are carried our well before the deadline. Inspection is the responsibility of the system operator, who is often the tenant.

The government is now consulting on plans for inspection reports to be compulsorily centrally lodged, this will enable local weights and measures to enforce the regulation.

Envitae is offering free advice for landlords who are unsure about how the legislations affect them. More information can be seen on www.air-conditioninginspection.co.uk or call 0121 240 7666.
