Renewable Feasibility Studies | Low Energy Consultancy

Overview of Renewable Feasibility Studies

When providing Low and Zero Carbon technologies (LZC) and or Renewables for a development project there are a number of generation technologies available that can be installed to provide part or all of the energy demand for a development or individual unit.   In some cases this can lead to much large schemes across multiple blocks and involve complicated distribution systems. These can therefore be considered as site-wide systems.

The wider range of technologies available on a site-wide system bring various advantages, one being the larger plant can usually operate at a more constant rate which increases the energy efficiency.

The renewable energy technologies that LEC are experienced with include the following:

• Solar hot water systems
• Photovoltaic cells
• Ground source heat pumps
• Biomass heaters
• Biomass community heating
• Combined Heat Power plants (CHP)
• Biomass CHP
• Wind Turbines
• Hydropower

Our Low Carbon Consultants are qualified to undertake Low and Zero carbon feasibility reports to determine which renewable technologies are most cost effective for the intended application. 

LEC can provide detailed appraisal of a building or buildings and look at the impact that different technologies have in terms of payback and carbon savings for a particular project. The key is the balance of the capital investment and revenue return of investment. The reports also assist to fulfil planning conditions, Code for Sustainable Homes (Home Quality Mark) or BREEAM Credits or Local Authority Development Frameworks.
