On Thursday 10th May 2018, Boston Renewables held a successful “Future Energy” workshop at the Head Office, Norwood House, Beverley.

In attendance were Senior Directors and Managers from local East Yorkshire businesses (and a Council from the south bank) that included: Edward Baarda, Eastfield Garden Centre, Fridlington Farm, JR Rix & Sons and North East Lincolnshire Council.

Richard Cave, Business Development Manager from Bryt Energy presented how businesses can get fit for the forthcoming changes in the Energy market including price inflation, and how investing in energy management and renewable technologies can mitigate this. He also discussed green electricity contracts and how choosing this approach can save money on electricity bills. Richard also discussed Energy storage, the practical considerations and how this emerging low-carbon technology can be used by businesses to reduce peak time electricity costs.

John Hudson, Managing Director from Boston Renewables discussed why businesses shouldn’t delay from investing in Solar PV highlighting that feed-in tariffs are due to end in March 2019, the fact that there has been a significant reduction in Solar PV equipment costs and there is still attractive funding options available which will not affect business working capital. John provided examples of why Solar PV should be attractive to businesses and discussed areas such as ‘levellised cost of energy’.

John also discussed other Boston Renewables services such as Operations & Maintenance and Energy Storage and why these should be considered, with O&M particularly useful for those businesses that already have a Solar PV array that may require a service.
