Renewable Energy

Energy - Don’t just reduce – produce...

The simplest measures are becoming well known as part of the green agenda; insulation, energy efficient lighting, reduced waste, double and triple glazing, etc all of these things are of course of great benefit and will help to reduce the emissions created per property; but what about the bigger picture? The potential is there to not only reduce energy usage and emissions, but also to produce energy via renewable energy solutions.

In terms of retrofit what is clear is that a "one size fits all" approach will not suffice; assessments in relation to specific property specifications will ultimately result in the greatest benefits.

Solar Photovoltaic’s, Solar Thermal Heating and Wind Turbine technologies enable properties that fit the specification to actually produce energy for themselves.

Air/Ground Source Heat Pumps and Combined Heat and Power Units (CHP) are capable of collecting energy created as a by-product, and using or converting this energy into a useful resource in itself.

With new technologies becoming available all the time, it can be difficult to keep track of what really adds value and advantage. Energy Performance Certification (EPC) will make these results far more visible. Thanks to the data being collected in a generically comparable, standard format – it should soon pave the way for “evidenced” confirmation of the claims being made about the eco credentials of the products and solutions in the marketplace.
