Council saves hundreds of thousands of pounds after becoming more energy efficient

Energy efficiency is the key to attaining significant savings in terms of energy expenditure, and that was proven quite clearly by the local authorities in Caerphilly, a recent news report in the local media was able to reveal.

Upgraded lighting, energy efficient boilers and state-of-the-art insulation are among a number of improvements which will contribute towards saving the council £4.4 million over the lifetime of the technologies. These improvements will likely help the authority save more than £400,000 per year and reduce its annual carbon output by over 2,500 tonnes.

Cllr Ken James, cabinet member for regeneration, planning and sustainable development at Caerphilly council, said: “In the face of severe financial challenges which are affecting councils across the country, these energy efficiency upgrades are enabling Caerphilly Council to considerably reduce its annual energy bill. The technology effectively pays for itself by reducing our energy demand and, once repaid, the energy bill savings provide a welcomed boost to the council’s budget.”

The green installations have been made possible with the help of interest-free funding from Salix Finance, a Welsh Government-funded provider of interest free finance for the public sector. To date, Caerphilly council has invested over £1.5 million in its energy efficiency works.

Significant savings can only be truly achieved when implementing a solution designed to optimize energy consumption across the board, whether we’re talking about electricity or gas.

This is exactly where HeatingSave system might prove its worth, since our solution allows customers to achieve immediately savings of up to 30%+ on their energy bills. This is achieved by optimizing the energy consumption levels within any building with the help of an advanced heat-loss algorithm that creates a specific profile for any building and based on that, switches heating on later if its warm and off earlier if its cold.

It also automatically adjusts your boiler depending on how warm it is outside – save up to another 10%.

Furthermore, the system also offers an advanced automatic occupancy detection system that allows the temperature to reduce to a background when areas are not used and quickly brought up to temperature when they are being used.
