About Elmhurst Energy
We are passionate about energy assessment and creating a more energy efficient society. Established in 1993 and operating across the UK, we’re recognised for driving standards of excellence in energy assessment. We do this through our software development, training delivery and outstanding technical support.
To create an energy efficient society
To devise and deliver end to end solutions that reduce the consumer’s demand for energy through innovative tools and methodology, high class training and world class technical support.
As ‘the’ established experts in energy assessment, we are passionate about supporting a sustainable industry for energy
assessors alongside energy efficiency products and service providers.
We believe that we have a responsibility to ourselves, our members and the community at large to speak up on matters
of energy efficiency, to keep this critical issue within the political and business agenda and to maintain the Energy Performance Certificate as a valuable cornerstone of future energy efficiency initiatives.
Elmhurst Energy get involved by:
1. Actively listening to our members and refining our own position based on input from the grass roots.
2. Working with Government to create pragmatic and workable energy assessment solutions
3. Identifying and communicating changes in the energy assessment industry.
4. Formulating a position, even when that might be perceived by some as challenging, if we believe it to be right.
5. Proactively speaking on behalf of industry members who share our vision.
We at Elmhurst helped create what the industry now know as the EPC; it was through using our extensive knowledge and real life experience of providing business solutions to rate the energy efficiency of buildings, way before any European Directive came about, that the UK was able to provide a standardised approach to Energy Rating using EPCs.
Our solutions were used by thousands of clients including Chartered Surveyors, Architects, House Builders, Building Control Bodies, Insulation Manufacturers, Residential Social Landlords etc. Through the 14 years before EPCs and since, we have thoroughly understood energy assessment and more importantly we passionately believe in it.
Elmhurst’s expertise in this sector continues. We have been heavily involved in all the amendments and changes to the EPC and RdSAP/SAP methodology from the start, and there have been many! It is now a very different methodology, but at its heart it is still a measuring tool to compare and contrast domestic dwellings to enable consumers to understand how energy efficient the property is and to give people the opportunity to understand how they can improve the energy
performance of their home.
We at Elmhurst value our history but ensure that we build upon it, by always being at the cutting edge of this fast moving industry. As an Accreditation Scheme we believe we offer more; we say more, we campaign more and we stand up for assessors and the industry.
Beyond energy assessment.
When it comes to energy assessment, we are not only concerned with individuals. We also deliver bespoke software solutions to large organisations which helps them share and analyse assessment data faster and ensure accuracy and visibility within their workflow. We offer tailored training packages for those needed to understand energy efficiency and tools for quick energy assessments that could help you with generating leads.
Our sister company, Elmhurst Energy Services is a market leader in energy efficiency consultancy, providing support with building regulations compliance, energy management systems such as ISO50001 as well as company audits such as ESOS.
