Woodford Renewables and SmartTECH is focussed on driving sustainability and developing energy saving initiatives for both commercial and residential projects. Utilising renewable resources, we can help meet the UK's growing need for energy while keeping carbon emissions low and helping the country deal with climate change. By working closely with consultants, engineers or facilities managers, Woodford Renewables & Smart Tech ensures businesses are functioning efficiently to reduce operating costs and deliver maximum return on capital investment. From installing solar PV to optimising HVAC systems, our team can advise on compliance led change and supply payback modelling, making renewable energy accessible and affordable for all projects.
Solar photovoltaics (PV) capture the sun's energy and convert it into renewable electricity that can be used in residential or commercial buildings. Solar PV installations comprise several panels, each generating approximately 400W of energy, although we recommend no less than 10 panels in order to maximise a system's energy saving potential. Other considerations include the space available and its orientation - which we can discuss in detail during a site visit. Speak to us today about a free survey.
Investing in smart technology for residential and commercial buildings can result in significant reductions in energy consumption and running costs. With HVAC systems accounting for a large percentage of operating costs, investing in smart MEP (mechanical, electrical & plumbing) can reduce the workload for facilities managers (FMs), enhance operating efficiencies and also provide improved conditions for a building’s occupants. Woodford can assess your existing MEP, from operating temperatures and system efficiency, to thermal sensors and demand controlled ventilation (DCV). Book a free survey to unlock savings.
Productivity, wellbeing and operational costs are all closely linked to the quality of a building’s lighting system. By optimising the use of sensors, it is possible to understand occupancy levels, while also harvest natural daylight to deliver recommended lux levels to all parts of a building. Simply switching to LED lighting can create a healthier workspace or home, while also saving up to 80% on energy costs. Plus, by ensuring a lighting system is IoT-enabled, it can harness the power of smart technology to further reduce running costs, increase efficiency and create a sustainable environment.

The switch to renewable technology offers a wealth of benefits, including reducing a building’s running costs and carbon emissions. For new build properties, heat pump only installations can be tailored to maximise system efficiencies via low temperature heating circuits. Or for existing buildings, a hybrid system can be created to utilise low emission condensing boilers alongside a heat pump for the best of both worlds.

At Woodford HQ, we have embraced the renewables revolution and are planning a range of energy saving measures. Our first update will be the installation of Solar PV on our office roof, which will significantly reduce utility costs. Furthermore, we are planning an upgrade of our office lighting systems, which will respond to occupancy levels to ensure we are only using energy when required.
