British American Tobacco - reducing annual energy consumption by £1.02m

British American Tobacco (BAT) has large industrial sites worldwide and needs an experienced energy auditing team to undertake energy audits across their sites. The audits aimed to discover energy usage patterns and correlations, optimise energy systems’ operational philosophy, identify energy and carbon saving opportunities, and support them with carbon-neutral targets. 

90% Absolute Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions reduction by 2040
3% energy cost savings delivered
150+ sites under remote control system

Challenge

Energy & Technical Services agreed to undertake the works just before the global pandemic struck, which then eliminated the possibility of visiting the BAT sites to undertake the audit works. It was then agreed that Energy & Technical Services would undertake the works using remote technology and transferring critical data to support the process.

Results

Energy & Technical Services used multi-variable regression analysis to provide BAT with a formula to benchmark their energy usage and flag excess energy consumption in real-time. We calculated the annual energy cost for all significant energy-consuming equipment. We provided options for a staged retrofit program for their ageing equipment, which improved resilience and reduced energy consumption. Finally, we provided the client with options for reducing annual energy consumption by £1.02m, delivering additional stakeholder value of £6.1m over ten years, and identified concepts for deep Scope 1 (fossil fuel) carbon savings.

Wokingham Borough Council – 49% Proven energy savings

The existing BeMS controls for the site were poorly controlling the LTHW boilers across various plant rooms at the site, some plant areas were found to be running 24hrs a day. The existing building controls were removed and replaced with RDM controls utilising improved optimum start/stop algorithms, alongside demand-based temperature control and vastly improved zone control.
