By offering a Turnkey Solution, we pledge to have in place the required resources and manpower to successfully complete the largest of projects. We believe it’s our ability to pull together the most appropriate combination of renewable technologies and expertise, that contributes to overall customer satisfaction.

Solar PV

Solar Photovoltaic (PV) is a Renewable Energy Technology

...that utilizes sunlight to generate electricity. A photovoltaic system is comprised of one or multiple solar panels, made up of solar photovoltaic cells, and a solar inverter. Solar panels can be either rooftop fitted or ground-mounted, and an installation may range in size from small-scale residential to utility-scale commercial and agricultural application.

Solar PV Benefits

The benefits of solar PV to industry, agricultural and commercial renewable energy projects in the UK are numerous:

Lower Energy Bills: Solar PV systems can significantly reduce energy costs.
Carbon Reduction: Solar PV systems deliver genuine carbon reductions, helping the UK meet its target of 15% renewable energy from final consumption by 2040.
Increased Revenue: Surplus power generated by solar PV systems can be sold, providing an additional revenue stream.
Energy Security: On-site energy generation provides immediate power for a lifespan of up to 30 years, reducing reliance on energy providers.
Environmental Considerations: Solar PV systems are designed to give proper weight to environmental considerations such as landscape and visual impact, heritage, and local amenity.
Utilization of Space: Solar PV systems, particularly those installed on the roofs of commercial, industrial, and larger public buildings, make effective use of space.

Ground Source

Heating & Cooling

How do Ground Source Systems Work?

Using the Earth’s constant temperature as an energy source, building energy consumption and associated emissions can be reduced by more than 40%

The earth is a huge solar collector, absorbing 47% of the sun’s energy, more than 500 times more energy than mankind needs, every year, in the form of clean renewable energy.

Using conventional heat pump technology and a ground loop heat exchanger, low grade heat is drawn from the earth and transferred to a fluid inside the ground loop, buried underground. The fluid then travels along the loop to the heat pump through a compressor where the temperature is raised to provide heating and hot water. For cooling the process is reversed with heat being rejected back into the earth.

A Renewable Energy Source

Ground source energy is a renewable resource. In the heating cycle, a ground source system will move at least 3 kW of energy from the ground for each 1 kW of electricity used by the heat pump. In the reverse cycle the same heat exchanger rejects excess heat to the earth at similar returns.

 

Benefits of ground source heat pumps:

  • Lower fuel costs: Particularly if replacing heat by direct electric, LPG, coal, or oil.
  • Reduced carbon emissions: They are environmentally friendly.
  • Long lifespan and high efficiency: They provide year-round heating and cooling.
  • Low maintenance: Once installed.

Battery Storage Systems

Battery storage systems paired with renewable energy sources have several benefits, particularly in the context of the UK:

Battery Storage systems can be connected to any method of electricity generation. They are charged up by unused energy in the system. In the case of solar PV, this can be times during the day, when there is a lot of sun and lower demand. Energy is stored in a similar way to a regular household rechargeable battery, which can be used at a later point in time to provide an instant source of electricity. The benefits are that energy is stored and not lost, it can be released during periods of high demand, when electricity tariffs are high, or when there is not enough wind or sun to power renewable systems. It is ‘clean’ energy and overall can increase the efficiencies of the energy scheme you have in place. This is a rapidly evolving technology with planned schemes having a wide range of storage capacities.

In summary, battery storage systems are a key component in the UK’s strategy to maximize the benefits of renewable energy, ensure grid stability, and transition to a sustainable, net-zero carbon future.

How can my business reduce its carbon footprint?

You can reduce your business’s carbon footprint by removing the consumption of fossil fuels and investing in renewable energy equipment such as solar panels or biomass boilers. You can utilise the power and heat generated from this equipment.

Switching to electric vehicles (EVs) can also reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change. In addition, charging your electric vehicle fleet on renewable energy such as solar or wind minimises these emissions even more.
