Energy Efficient Solutions - Commercial & Industrial sectors

Challenges faced by Energy Efficient Solutions - Commercial & Industrial sectors projects

In its push to promote greater energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, the Government believes that a range of industrial & commercial energy systems should become more energy efficient. These include the systems at museums, which are now commonly required to develop a carbon management strategy.

Airport authorities are major energy users and their operations have a substantial environmental impact. Whilst carbon emissions caused by airplanes is the major cause of this, they also have a responsibility to reduce emissions from other areas, such as heating.

Some sectors, such as the food & drink industry can have specific high-temperature heat requirements, while others, such as commercial office space can be confronted with peaks and troughs and seasonal demand when it comes to their energy use.  It is important to make sure that the solution you implement for your operative processes takes into account your sector-specific requirements.

The solution

There are many different types of commercial and industrial energy systems, so there is 'no one size fits all' solution. Through investment in CHP and trigeneration, and the use of renewable technologies, Vital Energi has developed a reputation for providing effective solutions which result in significant financial savings and reduced CO2 emissions, often far exceeding set targets. 

For example, CHP and community heating can be an important tool for airports, delivering serious year-on-year financial benefits and significantly cutting carbon emissions. In addition, waste heat from the CHP plant can be used to provide heating for terminals on site, thus reducing the need for additional power generation.

Getting your energy solutions right can have huge, on-going, financial implications.  We design and install technologies which can provide relief and exemption from a range of taxes, which include including the Climate Change Levy, the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC EES) and the Carbon Price Floor.
