What is involved in producing a SECR report?

The deadline for Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR)is fast approaching. That’s because a SECR report must be included in eligible companies’ directors’ reports to Companies House, and most companies’ financial years run from April to March.

What is SECR?

SECR is a mandatory government framework whereby eligible companies must report on their annual energy consumption and carbon emissions.

What is the process of completing a SECR Report?

The process of producing a Streamlined Energy and Carbon Report (SECR) can be a pain-free process and is something we can help with. The overall process is outlined below:

  1. A company asks for a quotation
  2. We send a form for the client to fill out, with some preliminary questions.
  3. Once we receive this form, a quote is sent out to the client.
  4. Upon accepting the quote, we receive the relevant energy data for processing.
  5. We process the energy data into the format required for SECR purposes.
  6. We will request further information from the client, in the form of an industry-relevant intensity ratio and any energy efficient actions taken in the financial year.
  7. The completed report is sent to the client, ready to submit to Companies House.

The best method of completing a SECR report quickly is to ensure that the energy data is monitored and reported in a way that allows for the easy manipulation of the data. Diligent tracking on energy bills and meter readings is the most effective way of achieving this.
