Excellent reputation and industry standing Providing a full range of renewable solutions Biomass boilers – commercial kWth Distributed heating solutions Full range of commercial ETA pellet and wood chip boilers Air source and ground source heat pumps Solar Thermal solutions System planning and integration Turnkey Delivery
Solar PV – leaders in pioneering solutions Save Energy: Preferred partner for leading CIS Thin Film PV manufacturers – 2013 and beyond Delivering high-efficiency technology with performance leadership Aesthetically appealing all-black appearance Perfectly suited for BIPV solutions
PV Solutions for Architects, Developers & Contractors Solar PV – An easy way to improve SAP, BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes scores Early planning for better results: Building Integration Improved Aesthetics Lower Cost A solution with long-term value for your clients
Weymouth - Commissioned Oct 2012 Customer: DJ Property Ltd 100kWp system on Solar Frontier CIS over 2 roofs Recent installations with construction partners
Regulations Ecological considerations Grid connection Landfill type, status, age, location Synergies with other uses? Landfills and Brown Fields – ideal for large scale PV?
High level of design integration with other on-site facilities Supporting local on-site energy requirements plus grid export potential Landfills and Brown Fields – ideal for large scale PV?
Various installation options – need to be selected specifically for site conditions Poured concrete slabs Precast concrete Pile driven/ Ground anchors Landfills and Brown Fields – ideal for large scale PV?
Major considerations impacting solar PV project design on landfills Landfill cap characteristics Site slope, stability and orientation Waste composition and differential settlement – PV system weight considerations Selection of anchoring system, mounting system, modules and power conversion Water management (floods and storms), wind and snow load criteria Cover material management Integration with landfill gas monitoring and production systems Site security and Institutional controls -> Detailed consultation with expert EPC and PV integrator mandatory Landfills and Brown Fields – ideal for large scale PV?
Biomass: Excellent heating alternative to Oil and LPG For businesses on oil/LPG: Extraordinary returns with the commercial RHI over 20 years Convenient, safe, green and highly profitable For hotels, leisure facilities, golf clubs, hospitality – and other oil-fired heat processes Great use for waste wood
Highly attractive business case for mid-size users Example: Replacing 140kW oil boiler by 2x90kW biomass in 42 resident care £96,900 + VAT cost *Annual thermal demand c. 330,000kWh Current: oil cost£30,000 p.a. New: pellet cost£16,500 p.a. Fuel cost saving£13,500 p.a. plus RHI payment£24,000 p.a. Total savings/income£37,500 p.a.
A market segment at the brink of explosive growth? Example: Replacing 140kW oil boiler by 2x90kW biomass in 42 resident care £96,900 + VAT cost
Waste wood – a great biomass heating fuel option * 4.5Mt wood equals c. 20GWh thermal energy in biomass boilers *Source: Wood waste: A short review of recent research, DEFRA, July 2012
Waste wood – a great biomass heating fuel option Estimated 360kt annual wood waste potential in the south west* Could provide heat and hot water to 5,000 care homes from previous example (= 200,000 people) Excellent renewable business opportunity and growth potential *Source: Wood waste: A short review of recent research, DEFRA, July 2012
Waste wood – a great biomass heating fuel option Biomass use in competition with other recycling – but: Considerable remaining (and rising) quantities for biomass Depending on report, still and estimated Mt go to landfill* *Source: Wood waste: A short review of recent research, DEFRA, July 2012
Waste wood – a great biomass heating fuel option Suitable for local/regional collection LACW (local authority collected waste) Local/regional wood pellet production Short transportation, greener solution
And now, the end is near… Save Energy – your EPC partner for commercial PV and biomass Thank you for your attention! Any Questions?
