powerPerfector wins new contract with the Environment Agency
17 November 2009, News release from powerPerfector
The Environment Agency has become the latest government agency to install Voltage Power Optimisation (VPO) and has today signed a contract to install powerPerfector units across 33 of its sites.
The estimated effect to these buildings will be a 12% reduction in carbon emissions per year and energy savings totaling up to £200,000 - meaning the initiative will have paid for itself within three to four years.
powerPerfector's guaranteed delivery of carbon savings and return on investment has seen a number of leading Blue Chip organisations install VPO units throughout the UK, and in the public sector DECC, DEFRA, Ofgem and DFID, are already receiving the benefit of huge savings in both carbon and costs.
"We are delighted to have been chosen by the Environment Agency as a partner in their energy efficiency programme." - says Angus Robertson CEO of powerPerfector.
"Energy management has to be a core element of any organisational strategy addressing the need to meet the CRC. This decision demonstrates the EA's commitment to take a lead in reducing costs, and more importantly carbon, on a positive investment basis."
Commenting on the contribution powerPerfector will make to the Environment Agency's energy management strategy, Graham Ledward, Director of Resources at the Environment Agency said:
"The UK has a target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 per cent by 2050. This is a difficult but vital task if we are to prevent severe climate change. However, improved environmental performance does not have to mean increased costs. In fact, good environmental performance makes business sense because it can cut costs.
From April 2010 many large businesses and public sector organisations including the Environment Agency will need to register under the Government's CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme, which is designed to reduce carbon emissions. I would encourage businesses to see this as an opportunity, to build environmental credibility and save money."
