Energy Reduction Programmes

Taming a power hungry building

From construction to demolition, energy accounts for a large portion of the total life cycle cost of a building. The scale of the figures involved means that any reduction in your energy use, whatever the size, could make a significant difference to your bottom line. And there are many ways we can help you achieve your business goals by introducing bespoke energy saving measures.

As in any good partnership, we start by getting to know you, your business and your building. We’ll organise strategic technical consultations, carry out surveys and arrange audits. Our aim is to find out what can be done right now, and what’s achievable for the future. At this stage, we take the time to analyse your usage and identify where your budget should be spent to get the greatest return. Did you know, for example, that simply by educating your staff on low or no-cost energy management measures, most organisations can reduce their bills by around 10%*.

Once an energy reduction programme has been identified, we can work with you to install new energy efficient equipment and systems. We can also help to install control and monitoring equipment to help measure their effectiveness. We operate in a technology agnostic manner ensuring that each element is designed to suit your unique needs.

Energy efficient equipment

We can advise how your organisation’s mechanical and electrical infrastructure can be more energy efficient. Even with modest investment in efficiency measures, we can calculate when you will get a return on investment. Below are some of the solutions available:

Mechanical engineering solutions

  • Boiler optimisation controls
  • High efficiency boilers
  • Variable speed drivers
  • Plate heat exchangers
  • Insulation and pipe lagging

Electrical engineering solutions

  • Power factor correction
  • Low loss transformers
  • LED lighting and controls

Energy efficient lighting

Installing energy efficient LED lighting and control systems can contribute to a substantial reduction in your lighting costs. We can consult on, design, install and maintain lighting systems which will both improve the quality of your building environment and make a difference to your bottom line.

Renewable technology solutions

Generating renewable energy on your site could reduce your energy bills. There is also the potential to generate revenue too.

Once we have identified your business needs, we can take you through the range of energy solutions available to you. We can also help with the complexities of funding options, energy reporting requirements, carbon emission commitments and provide financial packages to support you.

Our renewable energy solutions include:

  • Solar PV
  • Biomass boilers
  • Solar thermal
  • Air source heat pumps
  • Ground source heat pumps

Short Term Operating Reserves (STOR)

If your business has on-site generation ability, you can benefit from fluctuations in demand from the National Grid by providing short-term support from your site. So you’re not only saving money on your own energy bills, but could get paid for helping out too.

Heat networks

Our heat division will help you design, construct, maintain and operate your complete heating infrastructure. This will not only save you money but will count towards meeting your carbon reduction and renewable energy targets.

Monitoring and auditing your energy

We can provide a non-intrusive thermal imaging service to carry out electrical safety inspections as part of your routine maintenance. Our work can identify previously unseen defects like loose connections or overloaded components and prevent fire risks. We can also map heat loss in the building.

Energy efficiency reports

We can monitor your energy usage patterns over 7 days and provide you with a graphical picture of your building’s performance. And of course, we can then tell you what action you can take to save money.
