Green Generation Solutions, a Washington DC-based company that implements energy efficiency plans in commercial properties, has opened an office in the UK and formed an alliance with London-based consultancy BRE.
Initially, BRE will carry out independent energy audits on buildings, identifying improvements that can be implemented. GreenGen will then provide cost and return data to clients based on the BRE recommended retrofit actions and manage the delivery of work for the clients.
Solutions will include improvements to the building envelope, mechanical systems, controls and lighting. Additional areas of focus include policies, procedures and occupant behavior.
The companies say their alliance is timely because EU legislation soon takes effect that will make it unlawful to rent out a business that has less than an “E” energy efficiency rating.
