Carbon Survey See all Client services

A Carbon Trust consultant will carry out a free* survey of your site to assess the potential for energy savings.

Our surveys identify quick and effective ways to reduce your energy use. They are available to companies in Wales with annual energy bills greater than £30,000.

It takes just five minutes to complete our form and we'll respond within five working days. You'll need to know your company's annual energy spend and, if you're part of a larger organisation, the group's approximate energy spend.

What we do

After we've received your application, we'll give you a call to discuss whether your company is eligible and what kind of service would work best for you.

Depending on the size of your site, visits usually take between one and four days. The survey will be carried out by an independent, approved consultant who'll then produce a tailored, practical action plan. 

What you get 

Since 2005, our surveys have identified potential cost savings of £170million and carbon savings of 1.3mt. You could cut your energy bills by up to 20%.

We will work with your organisation to review its energy usage, identify energy-saving opportunities and support their practical implementation. Where this incurs a cost, we'll help you to calculate the payback period and develop a business case for the action. We can also measure and report on your organisation's carbon footprint.

If your organisation has used our Carbon Survey service before, contact us to find out if you are eligible for more on-site support.

Any on-site consultancy received is classified as State Aid under EU law and is therefore subject to EU de minimis State Aid rules. Successful applicants will be required to complete a declaration form to attest that the value of State Aid received does not contribute to the company exceeding its State Aid limit. We will inform you of the financial value of the support you will be receiving.
