Digitalenergy Awarded Contract To Implement Energy Management System In Whitehall

digitalenergy is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the contract to implement DECC’s (Department of Energy and Climate Change) energy management system (EnMS) to meet the requirements of ISO 50001:2011. 

The system will cover the Energy Management of the Department’s two flagship buildings of 3 and 55 Whitehall Place. Both properties have already demonstrated significant energy efficiency in recent years are part of the DECC Carbon Management Plan, the implementation of ISO50001 is to ensure a system on continual improvement that will ensure that reductions are retained. Certification to the standard will be assessed by CICS

Emission Reductions

On 14 May 2010, the Prime Minister committed central government to reducing its carbon emissions by 10% within 12 months. DECC worked hard to contribute to the achievement of this target, reducing its emissions by more than 21% over the target period and contributing to a reduction across central government of 13.8%. A result that Karen Dell, Head of Sustainability at DECC is very proud of.

Commercial Director of digitalenergy, Richard Hipkiss stated;

We are extremely pleased to be awarded such a prestigious contract by a client who is committed to making continuous improvements in their energy performance.  It is encouraging to see a Government department adopt this relatively new management systems standard and we hope that it will prompt other organisations to do the same.

Tim Watts, Operations Manager at CICS says;

 “The structured assessment we provide will ensure that DECC’s EnMS is maintained and monitored, thereby improving the effectiveness of both their system and their processes, leading to energy and cost reduction.”
