Energy Audit

Knowledge is power. Our energy and sustainability team can undertake energy audits of your estate. We will collect energy usage data for each site, undertake a detailed energy audit and identify key opportunities for energy improvements.

Energy Strategy

Create a roadmap for decarbonisation. We produce tailored energy strategies for our clients that enable positive action. We identify the potential for energy saving schemes across your organisation, test the feasibility of implementation and prioritise projects into management programmes to suit your organisation. We can help you secure funding and manage the delivery of your projects.

What our energy & sustainability clients say about us

“We approached Barker to assist us with accessing government funding for the decarbonisation of our estates through the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme (PSDS) and delivering the resulting projects. Barker worked with us proactively to write a compelling bid document which resulted in a successful PSDS application and grant funding of c£694k. Barker is highly professional, responsive and knowledgeable.”

L.E.A.D Academy Trust

“With Barker’s assistance, we were able to secure funds from the LCSF round to put together Energy Assessments for some of our schools, and amazingly, secure over £3million worth of funding with the PSDS round. Barker has been great through the whole process, assisting with the initial skills fund award, the bids, monitoring paperwork as well as project tenders, set up, and completion.”

Academies Enterprise Trust

“Barker played a crucial part in our bid submission, working alongside Trust colleagues acting as our technical advisors from feasibility to execution of the projects delivered. Working collaboratively and in partnership with Barker and appointed contractors, we were able to deliver circa £2million worth of decarbonisation projects across our Academies. Barker has supported Windsor Academy Trust in a professional and technical capacity, we have found them to be extremely knowledgeable around infrastructure, renewable energy technologies and decarbonisation strategies.”
