Energy Efficiency Scotland
Energy Efficiency Scotland – Increasing environmental performance is at the core of what we offer our customers.
With consistently rising energy costs, we are in the ideal position to help reduce energy spend while also reducing carbon emissions.
The coming years will see the implementation of two major energy policies from the government we can help prepare for:
- The Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) requires large enterprises to audit energy use every four years. Working with an approved assessor, we can help you achieve efficiency targets within the required timeframes.
- The Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) aims to improve the energy efficiency of social housing in Scotland. All social landlords will be expected to achieve the new standard by 2020.
We work with our customers to determine the correct mix of low carbon energy technologies that can be used together to increase savings, reduce emissions and improve environmental credentials.
Minibems is a demand management system for complex heating systems that can bring up to a 25% energy saving:
- Commercial heating
Minibems is ideally placed to provide efficient and precise heating in commercial applications such as factories, grain drying facilities and office complexes.
- Domestic heating
Minibems can deliver cost-saving, zonal heating and hot water control for domestic applications such as blocks of flats, hotels, care homes and large residences where different levels of heating are required in different areas of the building.
- District heating
District heating systems deliver heat to multiple buildings via a single source. Utilising Minibems in a district heating system grants the heat network manager visibility of the entire network, as well as the ability to monitor individual energy usage.
- Communal heating
Communal heating systems, such as those which supply apartment blocks, can benefit from better visibility, greater control and metering options through the use of Minibems.
- Individual heating products
Minibems can be incorporated into individual heating products to provide better control, increase efficiency and reduce running costs.
Thermal stratification is a natural phenomenon that affects all buildings and results in a dramatic imbalance of temperatures from the floor to the ceiling. The thermal stratification phenomenon occurs when hot air rises towards the ceiling or roof as it is lighter than the surrounding cool air. In contrast, the cool air falls to the floor as it is heavier than the rising hot air.
Airius thermal destratification systems will eliminate thermal stratification and reduce the carbon footprint of any building. Recommended by the Carbon Trust, they are one of the most effective energy reduction technologies available on the market.
When compared to using conventional boiler systems and mains electricity, Bosch CHP has the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions for power and heat generation by around 30%. In utilising the waste heat from the power generation process, Bosch CHP delivers energy utilisation of around 92%, of which around 33% is in the form of higher value electrical energy.
Bosch CHP modules feature a three-way catalyst and lambda control, ensuring low emissions and enhanced ef ciency. They also produce very low noise levels through their integrated sound insulation.
Fuel input to CHP is except from the Climate Change Levy. In addition, Bosch CHP plant and machinery is eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowances (contingent on achieving certain CHPQA quality CHP statuses).
Bosch CHP is ideal for heating domestic properties, public buildings such as hospitals, schools, sports complexes and swimming pools as well as industrial properties such as breweries, supermarkets and shopping centres.
Energimizer CHP products bristle with features such as:
- 3 way catalytic converter
- Lambda control ensuring low nox
- Live monitoring with ability to alter settings remotely
- Connect to a local network or the internet
These products can be supplied mains parallel, mains parallel with standby facility and island mode.
The ability to storage energy generated by wind, solar and other technologies is key to an energy efficient premises.
We are delighted to be able to provide, install and maintain Tesla Powerpack, the state of the art battery system designed for efficiency and long life.
Powerpack supports a host of applications that offer commercial consumers and energy providers greater control, efficiency and reliability.
The system scales to the space, power and energy requirements of any site, from small commercial businesses to regional utilities. It can be configured in various arrangements, offering far more modularity than competing models.
We can also supply and install:
Switching to LED lighting in your premises can help significantly cut your electricity spend. Not only do they consume up to 90% less power than incandescent bulbs, but they have a lifespan of up to 60,000 hours compared to 1,500 hours. This means they will need to be replaced far less often, further cutting purchasing and maintenance costs.
Generating virtually no heat, LED lighting is safe, cutting the risk of overheating and fires. They are also designed to withstand extreme temperatures and vibrations.
Used as part of a wider energy saving strategy, LED lighting can substantially help in reducing energy consumption and reducing spend.
District Heating Systems
A district heating schemes is a system for distributing heat generated in a central location for residential and commercial heating requirements such as space heating and water heating. In the right location, it is an ideal investment for housing associations and local authorities.
We have experience in planning, installing and maintaining district heating systems.
