Intelligent Hands Off Heatpump Systems

The Introduction.

Situated 25 miles west of Newcastle in the historic market town of Hexham stands the impressive  Hexham and Northern Marts. Hexham and Northern Marts specialises in the auction  of livestock for farmers of the North East regions and  was looking for a way to diversify its revenue streams without impacting the day to day running of the business. As a leading provider of cost effective, money making renewable energy systems, Calibrate Energy Engineering had the ideal solution for Hexham and Northern Marts. A 50kW Solar Panel system offsets the Heatpump electricity requirements by 50% while the 300kW Ground Source Heatpump system manages 95%  of the yearly onsite heating and hot water demand.  The in-ground pipe work is trenched under the implement field and the Heatpumps are located  in a secure prefabricated plant room. The Heatpump system heats the existing radiators throughout  the building and within the three sales rings.

The Figures.

The Heatpump system has a 236% return on investment with the Government 20 year tariff.

The Conclusion.

A Bespoke Control System remotely manages  the renewable technologies. This enables Hexham  & Northern Marts to have a ‘hands off’ approach  as well as enabling real time tariff generation and power consumption readings. The systems were installed in under 3 months during the day to day operation of the Mart with no downtime required.

Demand Side Response (DSR)

DSR financially incentivises energy users to increase or reduce on demand nonessential energy usage at times of peak or low demand.

Why is demand response needed?

The National Grid has to maintain a certain level of energy production capacity above actual demand. DSR is designed to provide the margin, either by increasing or decreasing site energy use.

What are the benefits of demand side response to you?

The primary business arguments for DSR are financial renumeration and sustainability. DSR not only allows businesses to avoid higher energy prices and receive renumeration during times on and off peak demand.
