The government is keen for property developers to install renewable energy systems such as solar thermal, biomass boilers,heat pumps and ventilation systems to provide heating and domestic hot water in all new properties built across Northern Ireland. For example a biomass boiler can ensured rooms are warm and showers have piping hot water all day. When these renewable energy systems are combined with high levels of insulation they help the property developer to meet heating and ventilation building regulations, and help the property achieve a good epc rating. Furthermore it will ensure the property is future proofed against raising fossil fuel prices, and will ensure low heating and hot water costs for the occupant.
Acorn Renewables Ltd provide free and impartial support and advice to property developers who wish to install renewable energy systems into their housing development or commercial property. NuTech Renewables Ltd can advise of any available renewable energy loans, or grant schemes available. For example Urban Development Grants can offer up to 35% funding for property developers who wish to install renewable energy systems in certain priority areas throughout Northern Ireland. Alternatively if you are building a housing development your clients may be able to benefit from future Renewable Heat Incentive payments for the renewable energy systems such as solar hot water, biomass boiler ie wood pellet, wood gasification, or heat pump (air source or ground source heat pump). Similar a commercial client installing renewable energy systems in a commercial building may be able to benefit from the commercial renewable heat incentive, and could have access to an interest free loan from the carbon trust, or benefit from the tax incentive such as the Enhanced Capital Allowance. Whatever your project, NuTech Renewables Ltd can design, supply and install a renewable energy system to meet your requirements
