Low Carbon Technologies

Solar thermal

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 PV

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 boilers

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

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.

Energy Monitoring

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.
