Making sense of renewable energy options
Renewable energy has great potential, especially given various government incentives like Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). But is it the best option for your farm or nursery – and how do you choose which technology is right for you ... solar PV, wind power, biomass, anaerobic digestion, heat pumps?
At Farm Energy Centre we’ve been keeping on top of renewable energy developments from the very start. We know what works and how best to integrate it with the rest of your activities, systems and processes. And we know our way around the FiTs and RHI schemes too, so we can help with the complex application processes as well as advising on all aspects of the business case and return on investment.
A range of energy efficiency services
Improving the energy efficiency of existing buildings, equipment and processes can give quicker and longer-lasting financial returns than any other investment activity, including a renewables project – and it’s good for the environment too.
So, this is the area that you should always tackle first when you are looking to improve returns. There are some very straightforward things you can do to spot problems and find areas for improvement – many of which are all too often overlooked.
Our engineers are all members of the Energy Institute, and are qualified to carry out all types of specialist energy assessment work.
