Energy strategy reports are often required for planning permissions to demonstrate environmental credentials. Still, Energy strategy reports are increasingly being used as the starting point for organisations or companies to understand their Carbon Footprint. This practical course aims to help the delegate understand how an Energy strategy report can be utilised in planning and as a tool to identify & reduce their building or estates' carbon footprint.

  • Be able to advise clients on the requirements and potential benefits of incorporating energy efficiency measures and LZC technologies into new or existing buildings
