A renewables assessment at the early stages of a project can identify opportunities you might not have spotted.
‘Renewables’ is a term that covers all the different kinds of energy sources that are sustainable – in other words, things that human beings won’t run out of. They are the modern alternative to non-sustainable energy sources, such as coal and oil. The most common types of renewables are solar, wind, hydro, tidal, geothermal and biomass. We deal mainly with solar and wind. From solar panels to heat pumps, there are lots of ways to integrate renewables into your project. A renewables assessment at the early stages of a project can identify opportunities you might not have spotted.
It’s easy to forget that buildings are a technology in their own right. So we’ll undertake a renewables assessment at the early stages of your project to see what opportunities it presents. It’s a great way to start saving energy with minimal.
It doesn't have to be tanning weather to benefit from solar power. Come rain or shine, during the day, power is being generated. This popular renewable technology comes in discreet styles that sit within your roof or overlay panels to put on your existing roof. Either way, we can provide you with sustainable and economical options that could lead to a Net Zero outcome.
Wind turbines don't have to be large or off the coast. Wind power can be harnessed from the roof of your building. Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) can generate power on a small scale – with a big impact on your renewable energy production. Because we take the time to understand your goals, we’ll explore the options that are right for your building and provide exactly what you need.
There are so many ways to generate renewable energy – including some that might surprise you. We invest our time into researching the latest innovations and finding the best renewables for your specific goals. From technologies that discreetly hide in the floor to talking-point showpieces, we have the answer that’s right for you. Pavegen pavements and Smart Flower PV systems are among the cutting-edge options we can provide.
We’ll consult with you to gather information as an early engagement piece. The sooner we’re involved, the more we understand and the better we can help you with your transition to Net Zero. We’ll listen to your goals and aspirations and we’ll help you get your building to a point where it’s ready for renewables. As registered energy assessors, renewables specialists and advisors, we’ll assess your energy and look at areas where efficiencies can be made before you deploy renewables.
This approach helps us to develop an overall energy reduction methodology for you, which we’ll explain in non-technical language that is easy for your whole team to understand. Our approach is always to make a cost-optimal appraisal to maximise energy reduction at a sustainable value. It’s all about finding practical, efficient and cost-effective solutions that are right for you.
If renewables are right for your project, we’ll help you get your building to a point where it’s ready to make the switch.
Our assessment provides a solid foundation on which to build a road to Net Zero. This may include energy-efficient renewables or re-zoning of your building. Understanding energy flows is an important aspect of this, including energy flows through windows, walls, floors and roofs, as well as heating, lighting, hot water and the like. Our expertise can help you transform the energy efficiency of your building in a way that’s simpler and less expensive than you think.
