This project was a survey and feasibility study to decarbonise the Academy and reduce its dependence upon fossil fuels.
There is a Government initiative called PSDS – Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. ECE visited the site and provided technical advice and cost advice to assist with the grant funding of various measures including the introduction of new heat pump technology for space heating and water heating. Heat recovery ventilation, introduction of solar panels on the various flat roofs. This will reduce the dependency upon gas for the primary heating of the classroom spaces and hot water systems.
