We helped Lilly UK secure an Energy Performance Certificate as part of their on-going energy management programme.
Lilly is one of the UK’s top pharmaceutical companies. Lilly has a research and development centre, two manufacturing sites and a distribution centre which exports medicines to all parts of the world. Lilly are devoted to reducing their energy consumption and carbon emissions, as well as improving the efficiency of their buildings and the ways in which they are constructed, heated, and ventilated.
Lilly UK was one of our first clients to voluntarily request an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) to try and reduce their carbon emissions. It was a logical development in their on-going energy management programme.
The Energy Performance Certificate was produced for Lilly UK’s Head Office, an extremely complex building. Good data was available from Operating and Maintenance Manuals, plant specifications and CAD drawings of the site, which meant that we were able to produce an accurate rating at a competitive industry price.
We have made a number of recommendations that will lead to improvement in the energy efficiency of Lilly UK’s Head Office. These recommendations include the introduction of LED technology, valve jackets to heating pipework, and a summer strategy for the BMS.
