Asset+ is delighted to have supported the London Borough of Hounslow as their energy partner through the RE:FIT framework to secure £11.3M from BEIS’ Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. This programme of work will reduce carbon emissions on 31 of its key corporate sites across the Borough including leisure centres, libraries, community centres and offices. The award covers heat pumps, solar pv, ventilation upgrades, controls optimisation, led lighting, battery storage, fabric improvements and further energy conservation measures which will reduce carbon emissions across these sites by 52% and generate financial savings of circa £500k per annum, whilst also creating local employment.
“Asset+ have worked diligently with our Energy Team to ensure both applications where successful and are aligned to our Net Zero Carbon Goals. This £11.3m boost will enable the Council to make big savings in carbon and energy and along with the previous £7.7M award for our schools contributes significantly to the funding needed to end our contribution to global warming by 2030.”
Charles Pipe, Energy Manager – London Borough of Hounslow
The award builds upon the previous £7.7M award to Hounslow covering 33 schools which Asset+ are now on site delivering and shows real action behind the Councils recent declaration of a climate emergency which commits to making the Council carbon neutral by 2030. These two awards are a significant contribution to the Councils objectives of building a cleaner, greener Borough which reaps the economic rewards of a clean growth revolution, while eliminating health and social inequalities and the costs associated with them.
The scheme finances up to 100% of the cost of capital for energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation projects that meet the scheme criteria within public sector non-domestic buildings, including central government departments and arm’s length bodies in England only and delivers the following objectives:
- Deliver stimulus to the energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation sectors, supporting jobs.
- Deliver significant carbon savings within the public sector
