Rowan offers energy consultancy services, including energy auditing, in compliance with the requirements of SI426 of 2014 and the Energy Efficiency Directive, to organisations who wish to achieve continuous improvement in their environmental and energy performance.
Energy auditing is a tool to gather data on the energy consumption on-site, assess overall energy performance, and use this monitoring to identify energy-saving opportunities.
Through our services, we work with our clients to support them on their journey towards more sustainable operation by identifying options to reduce energy use and transition to more energy-efficient processes and practices, including assessing opportunities for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
Rowan works with our clients on the development and planning of renewable energy projects. We have applied our planning expertise to applications for onshore wind farms, solar farms and emerging innovative technologies that support the integration of renewable energy into the grid. We offer our services from the project inception and scoping stage through the complete planning application process, including section 5 applications, EIARs and co-ordinating surveys.
For more information on our renewable energy services and energy auditing services, and ongoing renewable energy projects, and how we can assist you, please contact us.

Rowan’s in-house Certifed Energy Manager is registered to carry out energy audits, in compliance with the requirements of SI426 of 2014 and the EU Energy ENciency Directive, for organisations who wish to comply with the regulations while also achieving continuous improvement in their energy performance.
Rowan can also support energy recording and monitoring by developing meaningful metrics and targets while providing insights and advice on key performance indicators related to utilities and energy-intensive processes. We work with sta_ across all levels of your organisation to influence a culture change in order to deliver resource efficiency. Dedicated energy data training can be provided with data gap analyses and maturity assessments, as well as advice on data collection systems.
Advice and support is also provided for the effective implementation of the Energy Management System, ISO 50001. Rowan can provide in-depth training for sta_ as well as carrying out internal audits to prepare organisations for the ISO 50001 certification process.
Rowan can assess the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions across your entire value chain, prepare submissions for Science-Based Targets and help you develop your decarbonisation plan while always adhering to sustainability best practices such as the GHG Protocol.
These assessments cover scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions. Scope 1 emissions are directly linked to your operations and include emissions associated with fossil fuel combustion. Scope 2 are indirect emissions associated with electricity consumption. Scope 3 covers all other aspects of your value chain, including raw material, packaging, transportation, distribution, employee commuting and business travel.
Rowan’s detailed analysis covers all relevant activity data from your operation, evaluates the associated carbon footprint and provides advice and guidance on how to effectively reduce your carbon footprint. These assessments are usually carried out as two separate projects. Scope 1 and 2 are typically analysed together to analyse the emissions associated with your operations. Scope 3 is a far longer analysis covering all upstream and downstream business activity.
Our structured approach can be used to develop a long-term decarbonisation plan across your organisation’s electricity and fossil fuel consumption. Rowan’s knowledge of both national and international energy policy means we can effectively support organisations to deliver their carbon net zero target.
