Influence through remit

Energy reports are supplied to CHP on a bi-annual basis.  This details energy consumption within properties and recommendations to further reduce this.  The recently established Energy Committee will work to ensure all efficiencies within CHP's direct control are actioned as well as influencing our partners with regards to initiatives under their own remit.  The committee will work with tenants, sharing energy use data to advise on energy saving decisions.
