The aim of this Guide is to provide clear and concise information on energy management that can be developed and applied to a number of different installations.

Guide to Electrical Maintenance - Front Cover  

Guide to Electrical Maintenance

This Guide provides guidance on carrying out maintenance activities and using good practice techniques. It examines the operational risks, mitigations and processes that may be used in carrying out electrical maintenance, and also provides insights and philosophies to ensure that electrical maintenance activities are not only safe, but are satisfactorily planned and properly carried out.

Guide to Metering Systems: Specification, Installation and Use - Cover  

Guide to Metering Systems: Getting the most from your secondary gas, heat, electricity and water metering systems

The Guide details the key steps in applying metering systems from design and specification, to technology selection, installation and commissioning, and finally operation and maintenance along with integration of metering data into reporting/management systems, to support identification of cost saving, energy management and resource efficiency measures.

Electrical Safety Management - book cover  

Code of Practice for Electrical Safety Management

The aim of the Code of Practice is to provide good practice guidance to enable individuals and their organisations to have a level of knowledge and understanding to manage the risks associated with an electrical system. There are many technical publications that provide guidance on certain aspects of electrical safety but not in a way that provides a process for managing electrical safety.
