Renewables


There are many drivers that are resulting in more and more companies, organisations and individual homeowners installing renewable technology in their properties, not least the following:

  • To combat rising electricity and gas costs
  • To meet legislative obligations on energy efficiency
  • To take advantage of existing FIT and RHI payments to get a fast payback and generate an income
  • To meet social and corporate responsiblities
  • Suistainability requirements
  • To tackle fuel poverty within social housing

Solar PV


Arguably the most straighforward of all the renewables technologies available with regards to ease of use, limited maintenance requirments and least disruptive to install.  However, Solar PV packs a punch in terms of benefits, from FIT payments you receive for producing power, reduction in imported power from the grid, reduced carbon emissions, protection from rising electricity prices, to improved EPC ratings.

What we do

  • We provide a full turnkey service including feasibility study, design, planning (if required), installation, commissioning, and aftercare.
  • Thorough analysis of your current energy use for careful comparison against Solar PV electricity generation.
  • Detailed design utilising specialist Solar PV design software such as PV Sol Premium
  • Assistance with registering your system with a FIT provider
  • Onsite training for key staff
  • Maintenance and remote monitoring packages available

Air Source Heat Pumps


Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) absorb heat from outside air even when the outside temperature is as low as -15c.  They are used to provide heating and hot water to homes and offices.

Benefits of ASHP

  • Lower fuel bills, particularly if you are replacing conventional electric heating
  • Income available through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) giving you a quick payback
  • No fuel deliveries
  • Minimal maintenance
Many councils are now embracing ASHP as part of their strategy to reduce fuel poverty for their social housing tenants.  By replacing outdated heating systems their tenants are seeing dramatic reductions in their heating bills.  At BRB we have now fitted over 700 Mitsubishi Ecodan ASHP's for South Lanarkshire Council as part of their drive towards cleaner and cheaper heating for thier tenants.  Read more about that project here.

Solar Thermal


Solar thermal systems use heat from the sun to heat water.  They are used for both domestic and commercial buildings.

Benefits of Solar Thermal

  • Hot water generated throughout the year
  • Reduced energy bills as a significant proportion of your hot water requirements will be produced by the solar thermal system
  • Generation of income through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) giving a fast payback
  • Lower carbon footprint.  Helps to reduce your carbon dioxide emmissions
An example of a commercial application for this technology can be shown in a recent installation completed by BRB for SCHOOL NAME on behalf of COMPANY.  You can read more about this project here.
