In the Spotlight: “What are the key differences in conducting energy audits for residential and commercial projects?”
“When conducting energy audits for residential and commercial projects, different approaches are taken to cater to the unique needs of each sector.
In commercial projects, collaboration with the management team is essential to devise a long-term strategic plan for the business. The ORS Energy team customises a register of opportunities, presenting energy-saving solutions at various cost levels and payback periods. This enables the client to align measures with their budget and long-term objectives, covering aspects like energy management, lighting, HVAC systems, transportation, and renewable energy technologies to enhance efficiency.
On the other hand, in the residential sector, energy audits typically involve working with homeowners seeking comprehensive energy upgrades during renovation. The focus lies on optimising home efficiency while considering the homeowner’s preferences and budget constraints. Home energy upgrade measures revolve around improving the building fabric and heating systems to ensure comfort and energy efficiency.”

In the Spotlight: “What are the key areas corporate clients face when devising renewable energy projects and sustainability strategies?”
“The biggest challenge in successfully implementing renewable energy projects and sustainability strategies at a corporate level is invariably cost. I work closely with clients to ensure a balance is found that meets both their sustainability targets and their financial targets.
My years as an account manager have given me technical knowledge of the construction industry and hands-on experience in what it takes to successfully implement changes in a client’s business. Most importantly, it taught me the value of genuine customer service and being timely.”
