Innocent Energy use a consultative approach to provide an assessment of building energy usage to come up with innovative solutions to reducing consumption and carbon footprint whilst generating significant savings in the process. Whilst saving energy we also recognise the importance of preserving the comfort of the occupants.
Often the simplest and most effective way to conserve energy is through stopping leakage. On one end of the scale this could be advising on behavioural change and simple draught proofing procedures that can often have a significant impact. Following on from this better insulation and lighting systems (such as LED) and modification to the building fabric itself (loft and cavity wall insulation). Furthermore we are able to offer a range of innovative digital technology solutions that have been developed in recent years.
An example of this is where we supply state of the art time and temperature controls for the existing radiator space heating system.
This uses the natural combination of renewable energy with smart electronic radiator controls to further drive energy bill reductions. This award winning technology can demonstrate significant savings.
Many thousands of property owners are now seeing the benefits of programming each radiator for temperature and time so they are no longer heating rooms when they need them at optimum temperature levels as well as not heating them when they don’t need them.
This is just one example of where we can help. We are constantly assessing new technologies that come onto the market and are able to advise on many systems whether it be harvesting energy from waste water or channeling and storing energy produced from PV systems amongst many other areas.
These solutions also have a practical implication in terms of the impact on the Energy Performance Certification (EPC) programme which now applies to all UK property. And should you be considering a PV solution it is necessary to achieve band D or higher in order to benefit from the maximum Feed-In Tariff (FIT) rates.
