Intelligent Energy Solutions are renewable energy specialists working every day on design and build projects with architects and contractors. Our wide product range enables us to make sure that our customers are aware of all the available options to meet the project objectives. This means we can tailor a system to specific circumstances and therefore maximize the cost/benefit ratio.
Solar electricity panels generate electricity (solar thermal panels generate hot water). These systems can be grid connected or independent for
isolated locations. These systems will help a construction project meet Co2 targets and Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) objectives. Solar electricity panels provide the additional benefit of revenue generation. The electricity that is generated can be sold back to the electricity supplier.
Since April 2010 feed in tariffs (FiT) are available that pay larger sums to system owners, this can give a return on investment of more than 10% per annum. The solar panels feed in tariff will be revised down quarterly for new entrants in line with uptake and cost reductions. Payments for eligible solar panel installations will guaranteed for 20 years.
Often system specifiers do not consider all the options when trying to meet a construction project's Co2 targets. Intelligent Energy Solutions are highly skilled at offering more options with the objective of meeting your objectives. This may be photovoltaics or could be a combination of lower cost systems.

This type of solar collector is designed to use the sun's
energy to generate hot water for both domestic and commercial use by transferring heat from the collector to the storage cylinder.
This type of solar panel does not generate electricity however they can
be integrated extremely well with a heat pump system. Solar water panels will assist in achieving Co2 targets and also Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) levels 4, 5 and 6.
System owners may also be able to advantage of the government's new scheme that will reward owners for generating heat from a renewable source, the
new scheme is called the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The RHI has been outlined as paying 8.5p/kWh for commercial applications.

Air source heat pumps extract heat from the air outside. Similar to ground source systems, they use this heat to
provide central heating and hot water. Intelligent Energy
Solutions are approved installers of the Mitsubishi Ecodan air source
heat pump. This system has efficiencies of more than 300% and can provide
huge Co2 reductions and running cost savings.
The Co2 reductions with air source heat pumps means that they are often the perfect choice for meeting planning objectives and Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) levels.
Heat pumps can also be an attractive investment for the system owner with the new RHI. Outlines suggests a payment of more than £1250 per year to system owners.
Our air source heat pumps can be integrated with solar panels (both solar PV and solar thermal) and wood burners. We also have our exclusive Intelligent Heating control package that is able to control multiple Ecodan heat pump systems on a single heating distribution system. This controller is most suited to larger commercial and public sector buildings.

Ground source (geothermal) heat pumps extract heat from the
ground and water outside. This heat is then used to provide central heating and hot water. The systems offered by Intelligent
Energy Solutions have efficiencies, in most instances, of more than 400%. A
conventional boiler is approximately 70-90% efficient. These systems can
also be integrated with solar panels for assisting with water heating
or generating electricity.
Massive efficiencies provides Co2 reductions assist in meeting Co2 targets. These system also enable properties to meet Code for Sustainable Home (CSH) levels.
Additionally the new Renewable Heat
Incentive (RHI) for commercial projects has been confirmed at 4.5p/kWh. Domestic RHI is expected to be confirmed in 2012.
Our ground source heat pump installations can be integrated with our solar panel systems (photovoltaic and solar thermal panels).
