  15. 15. Project Management • Collaboration between Marches Energy Agency and Shropshire County Council • Started April 2006 • To be completed March 2009 • Energy efficiency and renewable energy measures for businesses • Business diversification • £120,000 revenue for promotion, energy audits and feasibility studies • £315,000 for grant funding of carbon saving measures 10 November 2008
  16. 16. Target Pilot Communities • Pilot project in four contrasting Shropshire communities within the Rural Regeneration Zone. • Ellesmere Cleobury Mortimer Oswestry Floodplains Bishops Castle • Integrated with wider project incorporating domestic and community buildings 10 November 2008

  18. 18. Outcomes • Currently 18 schemes installed • 9 schemes approved but not yet installed • 6 schemes awaiting approval • At present implementation of all schemes would represent an overspend of £56k, but some approved schemes are expected to not be implemented due to change of plan of recipient. • Schemes encompass 15 different technologies • 6 business diversification schemes – assistance and training given to businesses to increase their capability to service the sustainable energy market and hence increase employment. 10 November 2008

  22. 22. Grant allocations and CO2 savings by technology • 15 different technologies represented to gain understanding of the effectiveness of different technologies. • Wide variety of cost of CO2 according to technology • Cheapest CO2 – energy efficient lighting, energy efficient appliances • Most expensive CO2 – solar PV, solar hot water • These do not necessarily represent long term costs as this depends on how mature the supply industry is 10 November 2008

Number of applications • Total of 33 applications (including installed, granted and awaiting installation and awaiting approval) • Most popular projects are wind power (6), energy efficiency measures (5) and solar hot water (5) • Many technologies only represented by one installation. • Solutions identified that are bespoke for a particular situation. 10 November 2008
  26. 26. Number of applications per technology (Total of 33 applications, excluding diversifications) 10 November 2008

Final stages • Schedule in place to revisit many of the early installations to compare actual savings against predicted savings. • Focus on the approved projects that have not been implemented to encourage the clients to proceed, up to the limit of the capital funding. • If overspend is predicted, identify alternative funding sources. 10 November 2008
