Carden Consulting’s energy audits give independent advice, unclouded by affiliations or agreements with any product of service provider. 

With almost 500 energy audits under her belt, Clare works with clients across all non-domestic sectors to identify a range of practical, cost-effective solutions to reduce their energy consumption and costs without loss of amenity.  She almost always identifies savings of 5 to 15% that can be achieved with no investment (sometimes by finding errors in energy invoices), before going on to consider other options looking at all uses of energy from pumps and fans to heating, lighting, ventilation, compressed air and so on.  Where renewables may be a practical solution, Clare considers these too, having first found ways to reduce consumption.

Clare’s energy audits are equally applicable to small, medium and large organisations, though large ones need to comply with ESOS and Clare is a certified Lead Assessor and can do this work for you. 

Those producing Corporate and Social Responsibility reports can draw on the energy and carbon savings opportunities identified in Carden Consulting’s energy audit reports.  Similarly, Clare’s energy audits can play their part in supporting those under market pressure to demonstrate their commitment to reducing their environmental impact by having ISO14001, or ISO50001, for example.

Refreshing…. clear English that’s free from jargon

We’ve used Clare for two energy audits; at our head office here in Perth, and at our weaving factory in Keith. The latter presented a particular challenge to Clare, as the premises are old with a traditional saw-tooth roof. Despite this, she analysed the problems in depth and presented us with a clear action plan to reduce our energy costs going forward. It’s refreshing to find a consultant who can relay their message in clear English that’s free from jargon.
