According to the Carbon Trust, buildings account for 40% of the UK’s carbon emissions. One reason for that is that around 80% of them are over fifty years old and don’t benefit from proper insulation or the energy-efficient materials and techniques that come as standard now. But that doesn’t mean the energy use of older buildings can’t be reduced.
We often recommend an energy retrofit as a way of enhancing energy efficiency. That might include replacing old plant and equipment with more modern alternatives such as condensing boilers, sensor-controlled lighting, double-glazing, and effective insulation.
Our specialist technical and engineering teams can improve key energy ‘hot-spots’ like heating, ventilation and air conditioning by using advanced building management systems, more efficient lighting and renewable technology.
Photovoltaic systems are a great way to generate green electricity from sunlight. They work by capturing the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells, which convert light to electricity even when there’s no direct sunlight.
Our experience in commercial PV installations ranges from large roof-mounted PV systems on industrial units, schools and office blocks, to ground-based panels installed in fields and PV farms. This provides free or low-cost electricity to the tenants, and a long-term revenue stream for housing associations.
With solar thermal energy systems, you could heat approximately 80% of your hot water in the summer and up to 10% in the winter.
We guarantee to deliver our solar thermal power work to the latest recognised standards, and can assist you with any Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Premium Payments schemes that may apply.
In the last seven years, wind power has been one of the fastest-growing renewable energy sources. And with the UK one of the windiest parts of Europe, our country is ideally placed to harness wind energy and generate cost-effective renewable electricity.
Whether you’re a business, a farm-owner, a public body, or a domestic householder, our energy experts can help you with the design, installation, and maintenance of small, medium and large-scale wind turbines, including both horizontal and vertical axis rotor shafts.
Our Heat Pump services include ground source heat pumps (where the heat is extracted from the ground), and air source heat pumps (where the heat is absorbed from the air). Both these types of heat pumps offer a wide range of benefits, including a year-round supply of natural heat, lower energy bills, and cuts in carbon emissions.
You could also earn money through the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Our energy experts will guide you through every stage of the process, ensuring you get the maximum return from your investment.
