Energy efficiency boost for Ealing Council

Ealing Council is to implement energy efficiency upgrades to save over 1,000 tonnes of carbon in a partnership with E.ON.

Three buildings will see technological improvements to the efficiency of heating and mechanical equipment, as well as advanced boiler optimisation, new lighting control systems and upgrades to the building management system and air handling units.

The work is expected to achieve energy consumption savings of 29% and save approximately £192,592.

Cllr Yvonne Johnson, Ealing Council’s cabinet member for finance and performance, said: “We have a commitment not only to improve Ealing’s carbon footprint, but to set an example to our residents that we care about securing a more sustainable future for our buildings and city.

“Working with E.ON as part of Ealing’s sustainability commitment has saved us time and money, whilst guaranteeing the level of energy savings within a fixed budget.”

Richard Scott, head of energy efficiency at E.ON Connecting Energies, said: “We are working with councils up and down the country to help them invest in the latest energy efficient technology; cutting energy bills and carbon emissions. No building – or solution – is ever the same but we can always help with simple things like energy efficiency advice right through to full-scale installation of high efficiency building services equipment, including energy management systems and on-site generation.

“This is just as important for businesses and public buildings as it is for the homes we live in. Through this project, Ealing Council can make substantial strides towards meeting its sustainability goals in a straightforward and financially viable way – reducing its energy costs and carbon footprint.”
