SECR Compliance Case Study

Case Study: Maia Energy Helps Major Housing Charity Achieve SECR Compliance


Our client is a major housing charity that provides support and housing to vulnerable mothers and children who have experienced domestic violence. As part of their commitment to sustainability, they wanted to ensure that they were complying with the Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) regulations. They enlisted the help of Maia Energy to establish the number of properties to be reported on the SECR reporting period, to calculate energy consumption, and to create a bespoke report that could be filed for those properties.

The Goal:

Our client had a goal to comply with the SECR regulations and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability.

The Process:

To achieve the client's goal, Maia Energy conducted a thorough review of the client's energy use, taking into account meter data invoices and annual statements. For properties where energy consumption data was not available, Maia Energy used extrapolation and benchmarking to estimate consumption. They then calculated the gross annual quantity of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and transport using government emission factors. To arrive at a figure for tonnes CO2e per occupant, they calculated an emissions intensity ratio using property occupancy.

Maia Energy also provided advice on actions that could be taken to improve energy efficiency, such as the installation of more energy-efficient lighting or the replacement of old, inefficient heating systems.

The Benefits:

  • Prompt and precise SECR report that allowed our client to comply with energy legislation requirements and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability
  • Identification of areas of efficiency and wastage, enabling the client to target energy consumption and reduce energy expenses
  • Accurate bills and the ability to easily check supplier invoices, saving the client time and money

  • Advice provided by Maia Energy on actions that could be taken to improve energy efficiency, allowing the client to take steps towards reducing their carbon footprint
