TFM are renewable facility management specialists

Renewable energy solutions

We operate across all areas of the renewable energy supply chain from feasibility and resources assessment right through to installation, operation and maintenance of systems throughout East of England, the East Midlands and London.

In order to reduce the carbon footprint of your building, we now concentrate on renewable energy solutions, including low energy, low carbon, micro generation, and renewable energy technology.

The knowledgeable team at TFM can assist you in choosing the best mix of renewable technologies for your building. This guarantees that the solutions you select are applicable, executable, and economical. We will always offer solutions with the greatest advantages and the shortest payback periods thanks to our expertise of the technology available as well as the design and functionality of the building. To do this, we must present a convincing business case for your investment. In addition, we can assist you with energy monitoring and design, install, and management of your systems.

Several renewable energy sources are available, including both domestic and commercial solar, biomass, hydroelectric and wind power.

Types of Renewable Energy Systems

Heat Pumps

We are experts in the development and use of renewable heat pumps in industrial settings. Fossil fuels are the main energy source in the UK, where heating consumes more than half of the country’s annual energy consumption.

By transferring heat between two separate sources, heat pumps can be used to either heat or cool an area. They are powered by electricity.

The heat pumps can function like an air conditioner in hot weather by removing heat from the air inside the building and transferring it outdoors.

Transpired Solar Collector

By converting solar energy into thermal energy and preheating the ventilation air to a building, transpired solar collectors contribute to increasing a building’s energy efficiency and environmental performance. This preheated air can contribute to a 50% reduction in the amount of fuel needed to heat a building.

When used as a component of a decarbonisation or EPC improvement programme for commercial real estate with a large building envelope, they are particularly successful.

Rainwater Harvesting Systems

We are progressively including the responsible use and disposal of rainwater into multiple occupancy buildings since it has become a critical factor in building design.

In order to meet the need for toilet flushing and other non-potable applications, rainwater is collected, stored, and used in rainwater harvesting systems.

Where there is a high demand for non-potable water backed by a sizeable catchment area, significant savings are possible.

Solar PV

Solar panels, sometimes referred to as solar photovoltaics or PV panels, use photovoltaic cells to collect solar radiation in order to produce electricity.

Although they operate most efficiently when the sun is directly overhead, they can also produce power in the absence of direct sunlight. Sunlight is converted into electrical energy by the PV panels, which may then be utilised to power your building.

Combined Heat and Power Systems (CHP)

Systems for combined heat and power (CHP) depend on burning either natural gas or a biogas. As a result, an engine is driven, which produces electricity to power your building.

The heat produced during the generation process will subsequently be used by the system to heat your building. This makes sure that more than 80% of the system’s primary energy input is converted into electrical or thermal energy.

Biomass Boilers

When compared to fossil fuels, biomass fuels such as wood chips or wood pellets can provide a building’s heating needs while emitting significantly fewer net carbon emissions. Although these fuels emit CO2 when they burn, the quantity that is absorbed when they grow makes up for it.

If managed sustainably, biomass fuels are sustainable. As part of a crop that is continuously renewed, biomass is harvested, and new growth absorbs CO2.

Using sustainable substitutes for fossil fuels, biomass boilers generate heat for central heating and hot water systems.
