Photovoltaics

Solar electricity systems capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run any electrical item. PV cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – you can still generate electricity on a cloudy day.

Subject to a review of on-site energy usage, you could see a reduction in your electricity bill of over 50% and produce a return of up to 15% for 20 years with the Governments Feed-in Tariff.

"Sizing a PV array correctly is not as simple as measuring the roof and filling it full of panels. With ever improving panel efficiencies, changing Feed in Tariffs (FiT), varying amounts of site demand and a saturated Distribution Network, many aspects need to be taken into consideration when designing the correct system."

We have a wealth of knowledge designing PV arrays for a multitude of customers. Our team of trained engineers can help understand your requirements and deliver the best system for you and your site.

Biomass

Biomass fuels, such as wood, logs and wood pellets, are classed as ‘carbon neutral’ because they absorb as much carbon when they are growing as they release when they are burnt.

Widely used throughout Europe, biomass boilers provide heating and hot water just like conventional systems.

Low temperature hot water biomass boilers (those operating at up to 95°C) can be classified by various methods based on fuel type or the physical characteristics of the boilers.

Most commonly these classifications are:

  • Pellet Boilers
  • Wood Chip Boilers
  • Log Boilers

Air Source Pumps

Air Source Heat pumps can be used to replace your traditional boiler to provide your hot water and heating needs.

Traditionally heat pumps have been seen as only suitable for under floor heating, however with the advanced control system now available and their ability to provide optimum variable flow temperature control, radiators can now be easily provided with the hot water they need and prove to be a very efficient option.

The benefits of air source heat pumps

  • No fuel deliveries required
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • Reduce your fuel bills
  • Can provide space heating and hot water
  • It’s often classed as a ‘fit and forget’ technology because it needs little maintenance
  • Air source heat pumps are much easier to install than ground source so they are more suitable for a wide variety of properties from flats to detached houses to commercial buildings

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground source heat pumps use buried pipes to extract heat from the ground. This is usually used to heat radiators or under floor heating systems and hot water.

Beneath the surface, the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature, so a ground source heat pump can be used throughout the year – even in the middle of winter.

Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground is constantly being renewed naturally. To avoid the environmental burden, these systems can be coupled with a Solar PV System, the electricity generated allows you to run your Ground Source Heat Pump heating system for free!

  • The benefits of ground source heat pumps
  • Can provide space heating and hot water
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • No fuel deliveries required
  • Reduce your fuel bills, especially if you are using Oil, LPG or electric heating
  • It’s often classed as a ‘fit and forget’ technology because it needs little maintenance

Solar Thermal

With the current levels of RHI available, Solar Thermal can provide strong returns whilst generating All of your hot water requirements between April and October.

Hot water throughout the year: the system works all year round, though you’ll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.

Cut your bills: sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.

Cut your carbon footprint: solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.

Combined Heat & Power (CHP)

With the current levels of RHI available, Solar Thermal can provide strong returns whilst generating All of your hot water requirements between April and October.

Where a site has a demand for both electrical and thermal energy, the installation of CHP on-site should be considered. With efficiencies of up to 85%, Combined Heat and Power (CHP) – also known as cogeneration – will provide energy savings of between 18% and 28% and reduce CO2 emissions by a minimum of 10%. As a result, energy cost savings of between 15% and 40% can be expected.

  • Reduced primary energy costs
  • Zero capital outlay options available
  • Stabilised electricity costs over a fixed period
  • Reduced investment surrounding plant e.g. boilers
  • Eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowances
  • Potential ROCs eligibility (Biogas, Liquid Biofuel)
  • Potential benefits from Renewable Heat Incentives
  • Sufficient savings to fund energy efficient measures
