Renewable Energy Systems

Did you know that Solar PV has seen the sharpest cost decline of any electricity technology over the last decade, with installation costs lower than ever?

A Low Carbon Workspaces grant could reduce the payback period on a commercial solar installation by more than 3 years.

Most business electricity consumption is during daylight hours, making solar PV an attractive option providing roof orientation is suitable and shading minimal. 

Clever innovations, such as incorporating battery storage technology increases the flexibility of solar systems, for example offsetting grid electricity consumed during the night.

Biomass Boilers

Grants can help towards biomass systems generating space heating, water heating, electricity, or a combination. They generate energy by burning organic by-products (i.e. wood).

Your business may generate its own organic waste which can be repurposed as biomass fuel, providing additional savings in reduced waste disposal costs. Alternatively, fuel may be sourced locally from other businesses. Fuel sources should be reliable and regular, and the quality of biomass needs to be assessed by a qualified expert. 

For other small-scale renewables such as solar thermal or wind turbines, please contact the team to discuss eligibility. 

Finding a Supplier

We recommend you discuss specific building requirements and technical details with a supplier who will be able to suggest the best options for you and your premises. For a list of suppliers and consultants, please visit our Supplier Directory.

When planning any renewable energy project, we advise early involvement of contractors certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
