The project sought to define the practicality of incorporating low carbon technologies and mitigation measures into the RE-Tek UK industrial unit in order to make the business more sustainable as well as to keep up the company’s green credentials that are key to the progress and nature of the business.

The inclusion of these low carbon technologies could contribute to lowering the buildings environmental footprint which will lead eventually to lowering the buildings thermal performance and enhance its operational scores when issuing new Energy Performance Certificates (EPC's) for commercial, industrial and office buildings.

By installing and no longer depending fully on grid connected energy supply the business is positioned as a safer and individually operational company that will withstand future energy shortages but will ultimately be in a more stable financial form by the reduction of energy bills.

The project evaluated a wide spread of technologies suited to the building type,  location and other constrains. Feasibility studies into the financial viability and the cost effective sizing were evaluated bringing a wide range of optimum solutions. The work presented is a stepping into making an industrial unit as sustainable as possible.
