Every year East Midlands Airport (EMA) connects 5 million passengers to over 100 travel destinations around the globe. The airport has won a number of prestigious travel awards including the World’s Leading Eco Friendly Airport in 2007.
EMA contacted ENER-G regarding the provision of a sustainable solution to provide heating and cooling for their New Departures Pier.
After an initial feasibility study it was decided that ENER-G’s sustainable, low cost ground source heat pump technology would provide the essential carbon and financial savings which the new build facility required.
ENER-G’s ground source heat pump systems use advanced technology to harness solar energy absorbed by the earth and convert it into green energy. The system was commissioned in July 2007 and consisted of a heat pump solution comprising of 2 ground source heat pumps and 27 bore holes at 100m deep. This provides capacities of 150kW of heating and 100kW of cooling, via an under floor heating system.
Thanks to new government plans to incentivise sustainable low carbon heating technologies, the use of ENER-G’s heat pump solutions is to become even more advantageous.
The renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme, to be introduced in June 2011, will guarantee significant subsidy payments and dramatically reduce the payback period for all organisations that install ENER-G’s heat pump technologies.
Turnkey delivery of individual heat pump projects hinges on ENER-G’s unique in-house resources including its own specialist designers, drilling rigs, drilling technicians, mechanical installers and project managers.
ENER-G 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 of ground source heat pumps, in line with exacting technical standards set out by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
ENER-G develops, delivers and finances sustainable energy solutions and technologies on a business to business basis worldwide. We offer a “one-stop-shop‟ for all commercial and industrial energy requirements, from combined heat and power (CHP), renewable electricity generation from biogas, heat pump technologies, Solar PV, efficient lighting, controls, metering and data solutions and energy from waste.
