Passively Recovering Waste Heat Energy With Every Shower
40% Funding Now Available for Energy-Efficiency Retrofits via LoCASE
LoCASE, The Low Carbon Across the South East project, is great news for businesses looking to tackle climate change and makes it possible for us to offer our market-leading Waste Water Heat Recovery Systems for Showers (WWHRS) for installation into even more projects with help from the funding initiative. LoCase, which is an EU funded project set up to help businesses tackle and adapt to climate change, is available to a range of businesses and aims to reduce costs by cutting emissions and by promoting the opportunities of the low carbon market. Whether your business is in the commercial sector where showers are used in abundance, so for example a Hotel, B&B, campsite or leisure facility owner, you could ultimately save up to 67% of the energy cost each time a shower is used (regardless of heat source).
If you are a commercial landlord; Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) for buildings legislation states that from 1 April 2018, a landlord of a commercial private rented property will not lawfully be able to grant a new tenancy of a property with an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of below E (unless an exemption applies), retrofitting WWHRS as part of an energy efficiency upgrade or planned maintenance project is one of the simplest ways to ensure compliance. Or if you are any other type of business in the qualifying area there is the provision of two types of grant funding (up to a maximum of £10k) that can be awarded to your organisation. Firstly, any business can qualify to use this money (up to £5k) toward having energy efficiency measures installed for their business, with both the cost of materials and installation being covered. Or secondly, if your business offers low carbon goods or services, a business development grant (up to £10k) is available. So how do you qualify? If you are based in the South East (East Sussex, Essex or Kent); are an SME with <250 employees; and have an annual turnover < £33mil, then you may qualify for up to 40% funding for the project via the recently launched Low Carbon Across the South East (LoCASE) Programme.
