Our Services


Ensight’s flagship service is its unique Energy Leadership Program ® (ELP) .The ELP provides a structured, on-site energy transformation program to capture cost savings from the ‘insurmountable opportunities’ previously unattainable from conventional energy management approaches.

The first step towards a full Energy Leadership Program is the Desktop Review. The purpose of the Review is to identify the potential “Prize” – the scale of possible savings that a full ELP could deliver. It focuses on the key question: “Is there an opportunity worth senior Management attention?”

The Diagnostic Phase takes the findings of the Desktop Review and filters the list of conceptual Energy Saving Opportunities with the aim of defining more specifically the scope of work to be undertaken in the core Execution Phase of the ELP.

The ELP focuses on a whole-of-site energy transformation ‘program of projects’. Project execution is supported by a close working partnership between Ensight design engineers and client staff. The Program is underpinned by high quality financial analysis to reveal previously unaccounted for energy system losses and waste; leading to the elegant redesign of energy systems to deliver energy services essential to cost-efficient business operation.
