Dorset school goes on a ‘Mission for Energy Efficiency’

A Dorset school has decided to implement a number of energy efficiency measures designed to help it cut its energy bills and and carbon footprint, a recent news report could reveal.

Milton Abbey School has between 200 and 300 and expects to save 3.3 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy and cut its carbon footprint by 1,000 tonnes over the next few years after installing a biomass boiler, water harvesting technology and air source heat pumps.

Speaking about the Mission for Energy Efficiency, developed with the help of consultants, Bursar Julian Litchfield said: “The benefits have been varied, from cost savings and efficiency gains to practical links to our students’ education.”

While installing renewable energy solutions is certainly a good way of cutting energy consumption, the truth of the matter is that the implementation of a central energy management system is also something any such organization should seriously consider.

HeatingSave has an extensive experience in the educational segment, our intelligent Building Energy Management System managing to reduce overall energy bills for numerous schools and academies by anywhere between 20 and 30%+.

The system optimizes any heating system’s overall functionality by taking into account a variety of factors, such as internal and external temperatures, occupancy, time of the year, the particular characteristics of installed boilers, etc. All of the data is used in order to determine the best heating patterns for the various heating zones within any building, using our proprietary heat-loss algorithm.

The end result is that users still get a very good level of comfort, while in the same time saving energy and money in the process.
