Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
EMI South West can provide many energy saving initiatives including but not limited to:-
(PV) is a system that generates electrical energy from the sun. It uses a collection of solar cells (an array) to collect the energy, which is converted into useful electricity for use in the home or be “exported” back to the utility company’s electrical distribution network.
Solar Thermal units convert solar energy to heat that is most commonly used to provide hot water for the home. The Solar Collectors absorb the energy from daylight and will therefore work on both cloudy and sunny days These systems work in conjunction with traditional hot water heat generators, such as a gas central heating boiler. Insulated pipework connects the solar collector panels, on the roof, to a specialist hot water storage cylinder.
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) extract heat energy from the air. By compressor technology ASHP are able to convert air temperatures to generate sufficient heat energy to heat a home. Heat pumps are excellent alternatives to oil, solid fuel, electrical or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) central heating systems.
An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can extract heat from the air even when the outside temperature is as low as minus 15° C.
Ground source heat pumps use pipes buried in the garden to extract heat from the ground.
Beneath the surface, the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature, so a ground source heat pump can be used throughout the year – even in the middle of winter.
Biomass is the common name for organic materials used as renewable energy sources, such as wood, crops, and waste.
