Renewable Energy

Pure Green provide specialist supply and install expertise for a wide range of renewable energy requirements for commercial and domestic clients.

Renewable energy as the name suggests is derived from resources that are either carbon neutral or naturally replaceable. This has been recognised throughout the world and several international treaties have been set up to encourage the introduction of renewable energy and the reduction of carbon emissions.

The British government has signed up to these treaties and offers financial support in two main categories

Delivery of Heat

These are technologies which are  supported by the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which is funded by central government

  • Biomass systems (the efficient burning of wood)
  • Solar Thermal systems using solar energy to heat hot water through a liquid which is exposed to sunlight
  • Ground Source and Air Source heat pumps which look for a temperature difference to turn a liquid into a gas before compressing it. This produces the heat.
  • Anaerobic Digestion which is a biological process to turn organic matter into a gas.

Production of Electricity

Electrical generation is supported by the Feed in Tariff (FIT) which is funded by the electricity generators

  • Solar Photovoltaic systems are now common place and range from large field based installations of several megawatts to small domestic system of just a few kilowatts.
  • Wind Turbines produce a considerable amount of the UK energy needs and are largely deployed in either field based or offshore arrays and produce up to gigawatts of power.
  • Hydro Electric schemes using either tidal energy or falling water can be linked to turbines to produce electricity.
  • Anaerobic Digesters can also be used to drive turbines with gas which can in turn produce electricity

The installation of renewable energy systems is highly regulated in order to claim the government tariffs. Pure Green is fully accredited to install all the above technologies apart from wind turbines. The company has a very large installed base with all these technologies and is expert at design, delivery and support.
