OUR SERVICES 

We carried out our first low carbon technology projects across the UK. We have a wealth of experience in the design, installation and maintenance of building services infrastructures. We focus on renewable energy solutions, incorporating low energy, low carbon, micro generation and renewable energy technologies to minimise your building’s carbon footprint and reduce the cost of energy.

Eco mirage experienced team can help you assess the right combination of renewable technologies for your building. This ensures that the solutions you choose are practical, deliverable and cost effective.

Our understanding of both the technologies available and design and functionality of the building means we will always recommend solutions with maximum benefits and minimum payback periods. This means offering you a clear business case for your investment. What’s more, we have the expertise to design, install and maintain your systems and help you monitor energy consumption.

Eco mirage can help you to achieve your energy efficiency aims and meet the ambitious targets set by the government to achieve zero carbon in all our commercial buildings by 2050. We can offer advice on RHI (Renewable heat Incentive) and FiT (Feed in Tariff) and show you how soon your investment will be paid back.

we can also support you in securing finance to fund your energy efficiency projects.

 

 

Solar PV

Solar Panels, also known as Solar Photovoltaics or PV Panels, generate electricity by capturing the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. Whilst they perform to their optimum with the sun shining directly on to them, they don’t need direct sunlight to operate and will generate electricity on an overcast day too. The PV panels convert sunlight into electrical energy, which in turn can be used to power your building.

As a Zero Carbon Technology, Solar PV is eligible for the government incentive Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) paying you for the amount of electrical energy that is generated locally on your building. If you don’t use all of the energy that you generate then this is fed back into the National Grid and you receive payment via the FiT.

Every building needs electricity to function and reducing the electricity consumed from the national grid leads to saving energy and reducing carbon emissions.

Wind Energy

Wind represents a vast source of energy that man has been harnessing for hundreds of years. The UK has the largest potential wind energy resource in Europe and wind power is currently one of the most developed renewable energy technologies, with the UK currently boasting the largest amount of wind generated electricity.

With the implementation of Feed-in-Tariffs and significant enhancement to manufacturing processes, the use of wind turbines to generate electricity is set to offer a viable sustainable alternative and supplement to grid-connected electricity supply systems.

The modern wind turbine is quiet, simple to run and available in different sizes, depending on the required output. Generally Wind turbines are mounted on a tower at the high point on a site to optimise energy capture, generally because wind is stronger, more consistent and less turbulent higher off the ground.

We can advise on and supply the technical detail for systems that deliver enhanced environmental performance for specific situations.

Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat

Heating represents over half of all energy used in the UK, with the principal energy resources being fossil fuels. With the cost of these fuels rising and their environmental impact increasing, alternative heating systems are now being incorporated into the construction process.

Heat pump technology has been around for decades and we have been installing heat pump systems for over 30 years. In recent years the technology has been developed to produce both heating and cooling. Powered by electricity a heat pump can generate over 4 times the amount of heat energy than it consumes.

Eco mirage provides in-depth expertise on designing and installing such systems including air, ground and marine source heat pumps.

Air source heat pumps are a proven technology, most commonly recognised as air conditioning systems, typically providing cooling but just as capable of providing heating. Based upon the refrigeration process or Vapour Compression Cycle, the heat pump process is similar to your home refrigerator but the process is used in reverse, generating heat instead of cooling. The process has also been optimised for heating, making the air source heat pump capable of generating heat even at low ambient temperatures.

Classed as a low carbon technology due to the fact that they can produce 2 to 4 times the amount of heat energy than it takes to power the unit, air source heat pumps are now eligible for the non-domestic RHI. RHI, or the Renewable Heat Incentive is a Government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat.

Simply, for the non-domestic sector it provides a subsidy, payable for 20 years to encourage the installation of renewable heat generating technologies.

Ground Source Heat Pump

Ground source heat pumps draw heat from the ground and then use that to generate more heat to warm your building. Unlike air source heat pumps, ground source or geothermal heat pumps are not as reliant upon the ambient temperature to maintain a high efficiency. From 1 metre below the surface, ground temperature is typically between 7⁰C and 12⁰C throughout the year.

To extract the heat from the ground a number of methods can be used, pipe coils laid in the ground, bore holes drilled vertically into the ground or pipe coils can even be laid on the bed of a lake.

Classed as a low carbon technology due to the fact that they can produce over 4 times the amount of heat energy than it takes to power the unit, ground source heat pumps are eligible for the RHI. RHI, or the Renewable Heat Incentive is a Government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat. Simply, for the non-domestic sector it provides a subsidy, payable for 20 years to encourage the installation of renewable heat generating technologies.

Biomass Boliers

Biomass refers to sustainable fuels such as wood chips or wood pellets which can deliver the heating requirements to a building at a significant reduction in net carbon emissions when compared with fossil fuels. Although these fuels release CO2 when burning, the CO2 is balanced by the amount absorbed when growing.

Biomass fuels are sustainable if managed on a sustainable basis. Biomass is harvested as part of a constantly replenished crop, with the new growth absorbing CO2.

Biomass boilers burn sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels to produce heat for a central heating and hot water systems. We can help you make use of this resource by planning your entire biomass heating system.

CHP

Combined Heat & Power (CHP) systems rely upon the burning of either natural gas or a biogas. This drives an engine that in turn generates electricity to power your building. The system will then utilise the heat given off during the generation process to heat your building. This ensures that over 80% of the primary energy input into the system is used as either electrical or heat energy.

From heating a swimming pool in a private residency, to producing hot water in Student Accommodation buildings to large-scale industrial applications, Kimpton can advise on the best solution for incorporating CHP into your building.

As CHP systems are classed as a low carbon technologies, they are eligible for the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT). This is a government backed incentive payable on the amount of electricity generated locally from Low or Zero Carbon Technologies.
