We are at the forefront of the fast growing, renewable energy industry.
We provide a comprehensive range of sustainable services to assess, quantify and effectively deliver energy reduction strategies to public and private organisations.
By taking a commercial approach to renewable energy, we drastically reduce our clients’ energy use and carbon footprint while at the same time maximising income streams via fuel bill savings and Government subsidies.
We project manage every aspect of the process from carrying out consultations, auditing premises, designing schemes, securing planning permission and applying for incentives, right through to installing and maintaining the technology.
The sustainability and low carbon sectors are among the fastest moving in the UK with incentives and the technology changing frequently.
As such, we are able to guide clients to the most appropriate solution and through the process whether that is installing low carbon technology; applying for funding; complying with policy requirements; designing schemes to meet local authority Building Regulations Part L requirements; or, achieving a specific BREEAM rating.
Low Carbon Technologies
Solar thermal systems capture free heat from the sun and use it to heat water for use inside the building. It is achieved by using ‘Flat Plate Collectors’ or ‘Evacuated Tubes’ which are usually mounted on open roof spaces with hot water transferred to a storage tank for later use.
Solar panel electrical systems capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. They don’t need direct sunlight to work and can even generate electricity on cloudy days.
This technology is ideal for large roof expanses typically found on supermarkets, warehouses and education establishments, offering huge multifaceted benefits.
Biomass systems are an ideal replacement for gas or oil fired boilers and qualify for the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive.
They are perfectly suited as a sustainable fuel source for large-scale premises such as schools because there is room to install the equipment, it is incredibly efficient to run and helps reduce fossil fuel usage.
Heat pumps are designed to move thermal energy opposite to the direction of spontaneous heat flow by absorbing heat from a cold space and releasing it to a warmer one. Heat pumps generally draw heat from the cooler external air or from the ground and are three to four times more efficient than some alternatives.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
Combined heat and power integrates the production of usable electricity in one single, highly efficient process.
It generates electricity while also capturing usable heat that is produced in this process making it one of the most efficient and sustainable technologies available.
Rainwater / Greywater harvesting
Most of the UK is suited to rain water harvesting and can easily be pumped into buildings using existing pipework.
Rainwater is pumped through filters and used to flush toilets, supply washing machines and water gardens. Grey water cleans water used in showers and sinks that is recycled for use in the toilet, gardens and washing machines.
We offer a range of sophisticated yet easy to use applications to monitor energy efficiency of your systems.
It’s said “you cannot manage what you cannot measure” and so energy managers provide feedback on operating practices, results of energy management projects, and guidance on the level of energy use that is expected in a certain period.
