  • PDF

altThere are few better examples of the benefits provided by an MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery) system than that of the Kwan household in Ipswich. The property illustrates many of the issues associated with modern homes which, despite being designed to current Building Regulations, often fail to live up to homeowner expectations.

Save money with Marshall-Tufflex’s new Power Factor Correction units

  • PDF

altEnergy saving specialist Marshall-Tufflex has launched a range of Power Factor Correction systems which will reduce your power bills and carbon emissions by improving the operating efficiency of electrical systems.

The units utilise high quality, reliable capacitors to improve the efficiency of your electrical supply at industrial locations through restoring power factor to as near unity as is possible by reducing the effects of reactive power on a site’s supply. This lowers bills because energy suppliers charge for reactive power. It also reduces carbon emissions and improves the quality of power, prolonging the lifespan of equipment, helping avoid voltage drops over long cable runs and increasing the capacity of a local electricity network.

Impact of Low Carbon Technologies further refined

  • PDF

altModelling of the impact of low carbon technologies has been refined further as part of the ongoing work Energy Networks Association (ENA) has commissioned on behalf of the DECC/Ofgem Smart Grid Forum. It will enable DNOs to more accurately plan for smart and conventional network reinforcement that will save consumers money.

As well as supporting the networks to compare different capacity solutions, the model, which was commissioned from EA Technology Ltd (EATL) and initially launched in July 2012, enables Ofgem and DECC to assess the likely effects of new initiatives.

With two Ministers both making powerful and highly significant statements, All-Energy got off to a flying start when the thirteenth in the annual series was held 22 and 23 May at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

Rt Hon Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State, Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) was able to announce that: “New research by my Department estimates that, since 2010, across the UK, over £29 billion of private sector investment in renewables has been announced supporting almost 30,000 jobs. Many of these jobs are highly-skilled and well-paid positions and employees can be proud to be a part of securing the UK’s energy supply.” He added: “The commitment of the UK Government to a vision of a low carbon future is building up a bow wave of new jobs and investment in the economy.”
