ENER-G Pumps Up Sustainable Heating And Cooling Operation
Released on: August 26, 2010, 4:36 am
ENER-G has launched a new ENER-G Sustainable Technologies
division – specialising in the design, installation and maintenance of
Through its exclusive partnership with four leading manufacturers, the company is
providing one of the widest selections of ground source, gas absorption, air
source and water loop heat pump technologies in the UK.
The new division expands ENER-G’s existing ground source heat pump operation into a building services focused business that can provide total heat
pump solutions for all types of heating and cooling applications utilising heat
pumps ranging from 1kW to 1000kW capacity.
ENER-G Sustainable Technologies has relocated its Nottinghamshire base from Ollerton
into larger premises in Mansfield, which will accommodate its anticipated
Managing Director, Paul Burley said: “Our in-house expertise and resources means we
can see the whole job through from initial feasibility through to project handover.
We operate our own drilling rigs and offer complete in-house services from
specialist design, through to complete project management, installation and
maintenance of heat pump technologies. We also have the ability to supply bespoke
manufactured heat pumps in a variety of sizes to accommodate complex customer
briefs, particularly where space is restricted.”
The introduction of the proposed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in April 2011 is
expected to stimulate further demand in the sector, providing significant subsidy
payments of up to 7.5 pence per kWh for 15 to 23 years that will dramatically reduce
the payback period on ground source and air source heat pump technology.
Explains Paul Burley: “This legislation will support a range of heating and cooling
systems at all levels, from small businesses and offices, and public sector
buildings right up to large factories. A 200kW ground source heat pump operating
eight hours a day – typical for a school or moderately sized business premises –
would create an annual incentive of approximately £18,000. Similarly, a 200kW air
source pump operating in comparable circumstances would lead to a financial gain of
around £7,000 per year.
“ENER-G’s expertise in delivering these technologies for all sizes and types of
application is unsurpassed. We are currently looking at introducing attractive
finance packages which will fund the installation, along with operation and
maintenance of the technology at minimal cost to the client”.
Heat pumps supply more energy than they consume by using a refrigeration cycle to
absorb heat from the environment and raise it to a suitable level for heating
buildings or providing hot water. The process can operate in a reverse cycle to
provide cooling for buildings as well. Heat pumps can provide a 50% reduction in CO2
emissions compared to traditional technologies.
When combined heat and power is used to drive heat pumps, further energy savings and
CO2 reductions can be achieved. ENER-G is using these two technologies in tandem to
power the new Malvern Community Hospital, which will be one of the greenest
hospitals in the UK.
ENER-G Sustainable Technologies has won official certification for its expertise in
renewable heat pump technology. The Approved Contractor certificate recognises the
quality of ENER-G’s design, supply, and installation heat pumps, in line with
exacting technical standards set out by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
The company is also a member of the UK Ground Source Heat Pump Association.
The business is part of the UK-based ENER-G group of companies which employs more
than 760 people worldwide, with operating and joint venture companies in 16
countries. It develops, manufactures, delivers and finances energy efficient and
renewable solutions, including: combined heat and power, biogas utilisation,
geothermal energy, heat pumps, efficient lighting, controls, metering and data
solutions, and new generation energy from waste. This is accompanied by a wide range
of energy and water consultancy and energy procurement services.
