It was a pleasure to work with Charles throughout our Energy Performance Programme. His professional and flexible approach coped well with the complexities of our work, he worked hard to understand our bespoke requirements and importantly delivered on budget and to the agreed deadline.
Charles helped us invest almost £5million in one of the UKs most deprived areas. The energy efficiency measures and heat networks are expected to save 40% of the buildings CO2 emissions and halve the heating bills for 1,500 tenants.
Fast thinking, holistic and professional, Charles Bagshaw is an excellent asset to any team

CarbonPlan undertook the initial scoping report investigating the feasibility of establishing a District Heat Network in Dalston Town Centre, Hackney. The extensive experience that they brought to the project delivered a detailed, comprehensive and above all pragmatic evaluation of the proposal.
Charles at CarbonPlan Projects has worked with Eden in a broad range of areas covering many MWs: developing solar opportunities, portfolio due diligence, and creating innovative post subsidy sustainable energy and education funded packages.  I cannot recommend Charles highly enough
Charles provided accurate, timely and commercially compliant advice in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency and audits. Sectors included housebuilding and general contracting where responses were often required to very tight timescales and he consistently met the specified deadlines. I recommend him as a provider of a high level of service at all times
Throughout our energy project with Carillion Plc and Oxford County Council, Charles managed our sustainability & energy feasibilities reports, advising us of measures to implement, cost analysis and best practise methodology. His work was vital to the project’s success and as a result he now plays a pivotal role in shaping our delivery models across our renewable project pipeline.
Charles and his team delivered our technical surveys & energy audits for our rooftop programme. Highly recommendable

CarbonPlan were great, excellent service, good value for money, and we are already seeing the benefits.
CarbonPlan undertook a substantial project to survey the renewables potential in the Borough and to model the planning and commercial implications of developing the Merton Protocol. The work included building a comprehensive cost database and model that allowed policy and investment decisions to be made on the basis of incremental cost. This would extend the Merton Rule for Commercial buildings into the Meton Protocol for use in residential buildings. As part of the follow up, CarbonPlan prepared and helped present to DCLG.
CarbonPlan’s thorough energy audit identified many useful insights to reduce our bills, improve the environment for our building users and understand innovative funding solutions. They worked tirelessly to understand our complex energy requirements that include life-support baseloads and back up generation to ensure the facility is future proofed against energy shocks
CarbonPlan conducted an energy audit survey for LB Merton. The brief was to assess the scope for energy efficiency measures and renewables over 8 sites that were representative of the councils portfolio and develop a methodology that could be applied across the remaining sites owned by the Council. The objective was to enable financial investment decisions to be made by highlighting the most effective measures relevant to the building.
We have developed a close working relationship with CarbonPlan using them as part of a select few consultants from early stage tender bids through to construction and hand over. They are innovative in their approach and provide us with support in a professional and holistic manner which we see as added value.
CarbonPlan have carried out a number of technical reviews of planning applications covering projects from estate renewals down to small scale residential schemes. Their fast turnaround times combined with their expertise and experience with reviewing energy models has reassured the Council that the required targets would be achieved onsite or where improvements could be made.”
The service provided was excellent, the reports provided were always clear and we never had any hiccups. Overall it has been a pleasure working with CarbonPlan as they are au fait with the HCA way of doing things and I would hope that we will have the opportunity to work together again soon.
Carbon Plan were great to work with and made our options easy to understand. After reviewing the study, we are having PV fitted to reduce our reliance on the grid and will be looking further into ground source heat pumps in the future
Scott Brownrigg have worked with CarbonPlan extensively on the Education Funding Agency (EFA) Priority Schools schemes to deliver BREEAM requirements. The collaboration has been very successful, in particular on Invicta Primary in terms of delivering DS Certification, which is currently pushing for 'Excellent' at PCR.
CarbonPlan worked tirelessly to help maximise the BREEAM score for the New Studio Building achieving and surpassing University of the Arts London’s aspiration for BREEAM Outstanding with a final score of 88.17%.
We’ve been working closely with CarbonPlan for several years now over many mixed use developments with complex energy and sustainability strategies. Their policy knowledge & innovative problem solving approach is always valuable and they are always a pleasure to deal with.
Rolfe Judd Planning have worked with Carbon Plan on a number of mixed use developments throughout London and have found them to be conscientious and knowledgeable on all aspects relating to sustainability and energy. They have always produced high quality work in a timely manner and have worked proactively and positively in addressing any challenges that have arisen during the evolution of the scheme design. I would have no hesitation in using them again on matters of sustainability and energy for future projects.”
