Five projects shortlisted in the ADE awards 2022

We’re helping clients across the UK on their journey to net zero, and we’re delighted that five of our projects have been shortlisted in this year’s Decentralised Energy Awards. Congratulations to all of our clients!

The Association for Decentralised Energy's (ADE) annual awards are the most prestigious awards for those involved in decentralised energy, recognising and celebrating the people and projects which showcase innovation, best practice and achievements across heat, efficiency, power and flexibility.

We’ve also entered into the Contribution to Net Zero category, which is a special award that will be presented during the awards ceremony in June.

Our shortlisted projects are below:

Heat and Efficiency: Operational
Leeds PIPES Energy from Waste District Heating Project, in partnership with Leeds City Council & Ener-Vate.

The Leeds PIPES heat network is a landmark project which has demonstrated how towns and cities can generate rapid carbon reduction.  The scheme has already seen 26.5km of district heating installed, connecting almost 2,000 homes and 8 public buildings with more connections imminent.

The project utilises waste heat from the local EfW plant, will account for 16,256 tonnes of CO2 reduction per year & alleviate fuel poverty.

Heat and Efficiency Digital Innovation
Oakshott Court, in partnership with Danfoss and Camden Council.

We have partnered with Danfoss to introduce revolutionary AI software technology at Camden Council’s Oakshott Court, which in just 7 months has reduced the site’s energy consumption by a third, helping the borough transition to a low carbon future. By simple modernisation of the heat network through the deployment of digital technology, we have provided improvements to the heating system benefitting 114 homes.

Heat and Efficiency Design Innovation
Southwark Heat Pumps, in partnership with Southwark Council.

We are working with Southwark Council to decarbonise their existing gas fired heat networks, across three local estates benefitting over 2,000 properties with a lower carbon heat supply. This is the first time water source heat pumps have been retrofitted within an existing high temperature heat network in London.

Integrated Energy
Swansea Bay University Health Board RE:FIT Projects

Swansea Bay University Health Board is a multi-phase RE:FIT project which has pioneered an innovative blend of renewable energy generation and energy conservation measures including the creation of the UK’s first solar farm dedicated to supplying an NHS hospital. The primary focus of the project was to deliver substantial and rapid decarbonisation to help the health board meet their net zero commitments.

Northwick Park Hospital, in partnership with London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust

We are guaranteeing savings of £1.9m a year for the Trust and are reducing carbon emissions by 2,581 tonnes a year at Northwick Park Hospital. This is through a fully integrated, self-funding, multi technology energy solution which will help decarbonise the Trust, as well as creating a smart grid from which the local community will also benefit.

The winners will be announced at the ADE’s annual gala dinner on Wednesday 15th June.
