Renewable Energy Statements

What is an Energy Statement?

An Energy Statement is a report that’s submitted to the Local Authority to support planning applications for new development. The report outlines how the development will meet the Local Authority’s Policy on Carbon Emissions and Renewable Energy.

Policy varies depending on the Local Authority but can include a 10%, 20% or 35% reduction in Carbon emissions compared with Part L of Building regulations.

Renewable Energy Statements

The term ‘Energy Statement’ can vary from council to council but essentially these are all the same. Examples of alternative names:

  • Renewable Energy Statement
  • Renewable Energy Report
  • Energy Assessment (from the London Plan)
  • Energy Strategy report.

Our Energy Statement process:

  • Review your plans & the Local Authority’s Policy and make recommendations
  • Liaise directly with your Planning Officer and Design Team (if required)
  • Establish site wide emissions using government approved software
  • Apply low cost energy efficiency improvements
  • Carry out a full renewable technology feasibility study
  • Size the most suitable technologies to meet the Council’s policy
  • Create a compliant Energy Statement
  • Supply the statement to meet your deadlines.

Why Use C80 Solutions for your Energy Statement?

  • We have carried out 1000s of Energy Statements for clients across the country on sites varying in size
  • We always apply low cost energy efficiency improvements first to reduce the size and cost of renewable technology
  • We always look to find the simplest and most cost effective renewable technology solution to satisfy the council’s policy
  • We can prepare the SAP/SBEM Calculations which are normally required to prepare the Energy Statement.

Sustainable Construction Checklist

The Sustainable Construction Checklist is a planning condition required by some Local Authorities. This document assesses areas such as energy efficiency, water usage, transport, biodiversity, flooding and accessibility. Your project will then be scored and given a rating.

If the Sustainable Construction Checklist is required for your project, we can provide you with this alongside your Energy Statement and any other services we are providing you with.
