Case study: A sustainable energy partnership
Helping Russell Roof Tiles cut costs and carbon emissions
We’re helping Russell Roof Tiles benefit from sustainable on-site generation and potential new revenue streams. And by working in partnership with us for the next 15 years we’ll meet their long-term operational needs.
In a demanding climate for UK manufacturing, Russell Roof Tiles needed to reduce their manufacturing costs and maximise their competitive advantage as a leader in sustainability and responsible sourcing - by improving the efficiency and reliability of their on-site energy generation and management.
We designed, built and installed a sustainable 240kW combined heat and power (CHP) system and a new boiler, which provides Russell Roof Tiles with 100% of their thermal needs and around 70% of their electrical demand. We expect to save 18.6% in the first 12 months, which equates to around £72,000 and over £1.2 million over the duration of the contract.
"The relationship with E.ON has been seamless all the way through the process. And with the expertise they brought to ourselves, being an innovator in the roof tile market, we feel this really helped the business grow and set us up for future growth."
Andrew Hayward, Managing Director at Russell Roof Tiles
CHP will give Russell Roof Tiles a secure, self-sufficient, sustainable energy supply tailored to the tile making process, as well as more predictable energy costs and new sources of revenue, now and in the future. Our expertise and flexible operation strategy will also help them maximise energy efficiency and guarantee performance.
