Fal Energy Partnership for Falmouth Business Club

  1. 1. FEP June 2012Purpose of FEPTo work in a collaborative and inclusive waywithin the Network area as a catalyst to make ourarea resilient, energy efficient and sustainableover the next 25 years and beyond
  2. 2. FEP June 2012Reasons for aiming for higher local resilience major financial problems Europe/world wide high and rising energy prices reduced energy security recession with growth prospects uncertain resource supply issues looming climate change about to bring increased uncertainty in  food supply  tourism income
  3. 3. FEP June 2012Progress so far  Local energy supply & demand clear  Indication of present trends  Better view of housing & energy  Renewable energy sources very large  We can meet Low Carbon 2050 legal targets  Local food self reliance also possible  We have set up FEP as an Industrial Provident Society for the benefit of the community
  4. 4. FEP June 2012Local energy useGWh non- domestic transport total % domesticCoal 2 10 12 2%Oil 53 122 259 434 56%Gas 47 146 193 25%Electricity 40 96 136 18%RE 11 1%Totals 142 375 259 776 100%% 18% 48% 33% 100%Energy costs £87m pa nearly 20% of local GVAHighest demands are• oil for transport & home heating• gas in the home
  5. 5. FEP June 2012Housing and energyCase studies carried out inhousing types covering >50% oflocal homes Shows large potential forenergy saving especially in olderhouses Many opportunities to changeto renewable energy heating eg Pellet stoveground source heat pumps, pelletboilers and stoves
  6. 6. FEP June 2012Local solar resource very large PV Potential Using Output % of 2050 energy GWh pa Domestic 30% of 16 3% suitable Non Domestic 14% of 64 14% roofs Total buildings 80 17% Land arrays 10% of 175 37% low grade land To meet this 54% of demand requires installation of interseasonal energy storage
  7. 7. FEP June 2012Large wind resource availableWith no noise problems the localresource is:- large turbines installed at 1-2 pa can meet 28% of 2050 needs smaller turbines at 23 pa, sites to supply 12% of future demand
  8. 8. FEP June 2012Land issuesAt present we import over 90% of our foodWe have land and skills to grow andprocess most of our own foodThis still leaves room for:- Solar Arrays for 37% of low carbondemand Planting woodland for coppice forenergy – heating/electricity backupfor wind and solar & for system stabilityetc Recreation land, nature & other uses
  9. 9. FEP June 2012Business opportunities to increase resilience energy efficiency: programme of £5m pa  insulation, new boilers- especially renewable heat supply  low energy lighting, conservatories  controls, smart metering, video conferencing  industrial system redesign & LCA  low carbon transport options renewable energy local supply: programme of £6.5m pa  wind, PV, solar heat  local energy supply companies local food production, processing and sales local market £60m pa  growing, processing  increase local marketing- wins on low transport costs local business increases local resilience when using local supplies
  10. 10. FEP June 2012 With higher local energy efficiency we can produce all our energy from local renewable energy resources, building on local expertise and building the local business base Please join with FEP in working together for Action for local energy wealth
