H&V Awards 2016
On the 21st April 2016 at The London Grosvenor Hotel, GI Energy received the H&V's Award for Renewable Energy Project of the year.
According to the judges, "the award recognises that GI Energy have broken through the boundaries and set a new benchmark for others to follow in delivering renewable energy projects" .
GI Energy designed and installed the renewable energy solution with Bombardier's UK’s appointed construction team, Vinci Taylor Woodrow for the new Crossrail Rail Depot building at Old Oak Common, in west London. GI Energy collaborated with the appointed project team RPS Associates, Atkins, and Vinci to develop a renewable energy solution that will deliver over 30% of the Depots energy demands from renewable technologies.
GI Energy's multi renewable energy solution consists of...
• Ground Sourced Heat Pumps(GSHP) utilising energy piles and 150m deep boreholes
• Combined Heat and Power (CHP) System will provide top up heating and electrical load
• 220m² Solar Thermal
• 1498m² Solar PV
This will enable approximately 54% of the new railway depot’s heating and cooling to be provided from renewable technologies and 20% of the electrical load to be generated on site from CHP / Solar PV, providing the rail depot with an overall 33% renewable energy solution.
Once operational, run costs savings are expected to exceed £100,000/annum and save at least 530 tonnes of CO2 annually and provide a payback within less than 10 years. GI Energy's bespoke control and management system will be looking to outperform and exceed these figures once the building is fully operational.
