Challenge

  • Accord are required to provide continuous warmth to vulnerable tenants at Chapter House – a sheltered housing accommodation.
  • Sustain were commissioned to ensure that Accord were able to reduce their Carbon emissions whilst keeping running costs low.

Solution

  • We undertook an options appraisal to evaluate the viability of a range of technologies.
  • We determined that a micro-combined heat and power (CHP) system could be installed to reduce energy bills and improve efficiency.
  • We also specified High efficiency condensing boilers using Magna Pumps (variable speed) to further improve system efficiency.

Results

  • Detailed design and project management of install.
  • Cost savings of over £2,500 per annum.
  • System will reduce CO2 emissions by around 276 tonnes over a 15 year period.
  • Payback period of 9 years.
  • Secured grant funding of £3,000 to reduce install costs and payback period.
