Energy efficiency audits

Free energy audits are available to help small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) in both Derbyshire and Derby to reduce business costs and carbon emissions. 


Would you like to know how much energy your business is using and where you could save money?

If you run a small or medium-sized business in Derbyshire or Derby you could be eligible for a free energy review.

An energy expert from the Derby and Derbyshire Energy Efficiency scheme (D2EE) will visit your business premises to carry out a review to look at ways to reduce your business costs and improve working conditions.

After the visit you’ll be sent a report with information about how your business can reduce energy use and estimate what the savings would be.

The report will look at areas including lighting, any equipment you use, heating, insulation and renewable energy.

If you’re looking for support for environmental accreditation or access to low carbon supply chains, the University of Derby's Low Carbon Business Network may be able to help. The university's Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering can provide low carbon research and development technical support.


The energy audits are available to SMEs in Derbyshire and Derby. SMEs are defined as companies with less than 250 employees and either a turnover of less than €50million or a balance sheet total of less than €43million. They must be no more than 25% owned by a company that is not an SME.
