The EEVS Standard
Currently under development, the EEVS Standard will be a new, independently-developed, framework helping organisations to source and deliver successful energy saving schemes across whole estates.
From our experience, a lack of management standards for large-scale and long-term energy efficiency programmes means that corporate occupiers are currently missing out on significant cost-saving and sustainability opportunities.
By providing the key tools needed to unlock estate-wide energy efficiency opportunities – and to deliver the scale of change needed to achieve net-zero – the EEVS Standard will fill an important gap in the market.
The essential management systems, analytical processes and supplier governance arrangements that the new Standard sets down will enable organisations to confidently:
- Invest in large-scale efficiency programmes knowing that individual site-level savings will be accurately determined; that suppliers will be held to account for their overall performance claims; and that, ultimately, they will get proven results and value for money;
- Outsource the delivery of challenging energy efficiency targets to performance-assured suppliers through long-term, performance-focused deals
- Benchmark site-level saving performance both internally and against external peers.
Oversight and Governance
EEVS is currently assembling an independent Advisory Board of senior property professionals from across the industry to help to steer the development of the Standard and ensure it benefits from industry-wide input.
The board will be chaired by leading industry figure, John Pike, whose career at the heart of corporate real estate in the UK spans some 30 years with major occupiers such as BT, Network Rail, HBOS plc and Lloyds Banking Group.
Following a process of Advisory Board scrutiny, we aim to launch the finalised Standard by mid 2021.
