Local authority commits to massive energy savings


HeatingSave Building Energy Management System

A local authority in England has revealed plans to slash its carbon emissions by up to 60% by 2025, a news report has been able to reveal.

Suffolk County Council has acknowledged the fact that investment in the region’s housing stock will be vital to hitting this target. And as a first measure, it has commissioned the development of the Suffolk Housing Stock Database, which identifies at an individual property address level the built characteristics and energy performance of housing for a variety of geographical scales from property address up to district/borough level.

This data is then cross referenced with Mosaic householder data from Experian, thus offering insight into not only the stock, its energy efficiency performance and upgrade potential, but also an appreciation of each household’s tenure and socio-economic status.

With no directly managed housing stock of its own, Suffolk County Council’s commissioning of the Housing Stock Database was motivated by its drive to effectively tackle fuel poverty across the region, as well as to ensure that investment in existing housing is appropriately directed to help meet its 2025 carbon emission reduction goals.

For the first time, the database offers Suffolk comprehensive insight into all housing in the region – to a level far beyond traditional sample-based stock condition surveys. The database has immediate benefits in terms of targeting energy efficiency and carbon emission reduction programmes.

Building Energy Managements can help deliver extensive energy use monitoring and saving features for local authorities

Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.

HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
