E.ON, one of the UK’s leading electricity and gas
companies, has today (Monday 19 November) launched a new business
proposition to help local authorities all over the country reduce
their carbon footprint and fuel bills.
Public buildings will be among the first to benefit from the new scheme, tailored to their individual needs, to create and implement a sustainable energy strategy.
This groundbreaking business will provide public buildings with low carbon solutions to help meet their carbon reduction commitments. As part of the solution E.ON will also help local authorities demonstrate their low carbon leadership, using additional features such as display equipment, and reporting and metering services to help local authorities engage their communities on low carbon solution energy solutions.
As an official supplier under Phase 2 of the Government’s Low Carbon Buildings Programme, public sector organisations and charities could obtain a grant of up to 35% off the cost of buying and installing small wind turbines, biomass boilers and ground source heat pumps, through Sustainable Energy Solutions.
Sam Baylis Head of Sustainable Energy Solutions at E.ON said: “We aim to change the way that people view energy in the UK and to change the way that it’s generated, distributed and used.
“That means we’re committed to the development of low carbon energy solutions, many incorporating micro generation, through which we aim to play a key role in helping our customers achieve their low carbon objectives and help the Government to meet its carbon reduction targets.
“Our Sustainable Energy Solutions is a unique business, which is designed to help advise and to offer solutions to homes, schools and public buildings across the UK.”
Sustainable Energy Solutions works with social housing, schools and public buildings top develop low carbon energy strategies.
