Norfolk poultry company cuts energy bills
A Norfolk poultry company has managed to cut its energy bills by switching from a gas boiler to a biomass one, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
Traditional Norfolk Poultry (TNP) used gas heaters to keep chicks warm before swapping to biomass boilers at the end of 2014.
The boilers at the brooding sites based near Attleborough burn wood pellets from sustainably sourced UK forests, enabling the company to make significant energy bill savings by emitting a much drier heat than gas.
“There are lots of industries using biomass boilers but as far as poultry is concerned it’s not been hugely implemented,” said one of the company’s founding partners, Mark Gorton. “With gas, it’s fairly clean and easy delivery, so it’s still popular.”
HeatingSave – helping you cut your energy bills
Energy management systems might represent a sizeable investment for any company, but the rapidly rising energy prices can actually deliver a very rapid return on investment, experts in the field have argued.
A recent paper on this topic has argued that over half of firms have appointed a senior director to manage energy spending and implement energy efficiency measures.
The range of energy saving programmes directors can vary largely, depending on the available funding, the company’s size, premises, site specifics.
However, regardless of the particular approach, directors who are serious about slashing their energy bills will need to consider retrofitting their premises in some way, whether we’re talking about putting in renewable energy measures or more complex Building Energy Management Systems.
An energy management and monitoring system can help companies stay on top of their energy usage and reduce their overall bills by running their light/heating systems in an optimum manner.
