More than 1,500 Southampton homes to become more energy efficient as part of £27m revamp
Over 1,500 homes in Southampton are set to become more energy efficient under a scheme launched by Southampton City Council and British Gas, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
The range of improvements will include new windows, tenant controlled heating, external wall insulation, new roofs and coloured rendering. The scheme is a part of the Energy Companies Obligation.
Cllr Warwick Payne, Cabinet Member for Housing and Sustainability, said: “This energy efficiency project will provide affordable warmth to tenants, improve the appearance of properties and boost the local economy with job opportunities created by this exciting scheme.
“This will be a massive project, some three times larger than the recent works in Weston. We look forward to working with British Gas, our tenants and the wider communities in the months ahead to make energy-saving improvements to these estates.”
HeatingSave – turning any household into a smart, energy-saving smart home
Implementing specific smart control solutions designed to improve the level of heating efficiency across both domestic and commercial buildings is yet another factor that could help reduce energy consumption (and, with it, carbon generation), and that’s specifically where Building Energy Management Systems come into play.
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.
