SMARTech energy helps Airsprung Group meet EU standards

By Gill Harris on February 02, 2019

Trowbridge-based bed and mattress manufacturer Airsprung Group is making sure it’s as green as it can be, with the help of energy reduction specialist SMARTech energy.

Launched in 2014, the government-backed Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) is a mandatory energy assessment scheme set up in response to Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive – which is designed to support energy efficiency measures in the UK’s commercial and industrial sectors.

As an approved ESOS Lead Assessor, SMARTech energy, which is based in Corsham, is qualified to help businesses and organisations achieve ESOS compliance by offering site surveys, energy analysis and monitoring to identify energy consumption and cost saving opportunities.

The scheme, which affects organisations that employ at least 250 people and those that employ less than 250 people but have an annual turnover in excess of €50m and an annual balance sheet in excess of €43m, is now in its second phase and companies are being urged to adhere to the compliance deadline of December 5, 2019.

Implementing effective cost energy saving projects can reduce an organisation’s annual energy costs by 20% or more and, with the need to protect the environment, together with rising energy costs, the offer of a financial return further contributes to an organisation’s sustainability objective.

Stuart Pearce, MD of SMARTech energy, said: “Our experience has shown that significant energy savings can be identified through the ESOS process and that going beyond the mandatory environmental compliance makes for a compelling business case.  We look forward to helping the Airsprung Group to achieve ESOS compliance and to supporting their commitment in sustainable energy management”.

As leaders in the provision of specialist commercial services, SMARTech energy can deliver recommended measures through the design, installation and servicing of major building systems – such as heating and cooling, ventilation and lighting projects.
