The team will be exhibiting at Plastics Live 2024, Coventry on Wednesday 12th to Thursday 13th June on Stand number E30.

As an award-winning energy management and reduction specialist, this exhibition provides a platform for the team to discuss its Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS) programme to the plastics industry.

EEaaS guarantees to help businesses to reduce their energy usage by between 15% and 33%, thereby helping organisations to save energy, save money and save carbon.

Visit Stand # E30 to understand the benefits of EEaaS

The team at SMARTech energy are inviting delegates to visit Stand E30 to get a better understanding of the benefits of reducing a site’s total energy consumption and how this helps to optimise the energy performance and operating conditions of a site.

Energy Efficiency as a Service (EEaaS) is a shared-savings energy management programme which enables organisations to implement energy efficiency plans and utilises one or more of 34 energy-saving and energy-generating technologies.

This strategic approach to energy efficiency removes obstacles such a lack of capital, experience and resource within an organisation and provides a clear strategic energy saving solution across a whole organisation – as opposed to small individual projects and guarantees to deliver the most efficient savings and all within a few short months.

Save Energy.  Save Money.  Save Carbon.

Energy management and reduction specialist SMARTech energy celebrates 9th anniversary with a major office refurbishment

Chippenham-based SMARTech energy is celebrating its ninth anniversary in style with investment into a new office makeover.

This, together with the installation of energy efficient technologies with proven and guaranteed energy savings – plus on-going support, really helps businesses to save energy, save money and save carbon.

To mark the company’s 9th anniversary, the team recently took part in a  pizza making lunch time activity.

Innovative Air Cooling for Herman Miller

Innovative Air Cooling for Herman Miller

Innovative air cooling technology helps office furniture giant, Herman Miller to set the climate at its manufacturing facility in Wiltshire

Based in Melksham’s Bowerhill, leading global manufacturer of office furniture, Herman Miller is a superb example of how innovation within energy efficient air cooling technology can not only improve the working environment, but save costs from a company’s bottom line.

Heating, ventilation and cooling play a crucial role in the working environment for most buildings and especially within a manufacturing facility.  Corsham-based energy reduction specialist SMARTech energy, were brought on board to design an energy efficient cooling system at the 170,000 square foot site, known as PortalMill, with the aim to not only improve the working environment for its staff, but to deliver energy savings to the company.

Installing Energy Efficient Cooling Solutions in Melksham

With considerable experience of designing and installing energy efficient cooling solutions, SMARTech energy specified nine Evaporative Cooling Systems for the manufacturing space – enabling control of the air temperature and humidity levels in the assembly and manufacturing machine areas; acting as a recirculation system for winter and a ventilator or evaporative cooling system for the summer.

SMARTech energy’s team took five weeks to finalise the project – which included laying more than seven miles of cable throughout the facility.  MD of SMARTech energy, Stuart Pearce said “Evaporative cooling is a completely natural way of producing refreshing cool air and only runs at 10% of the running cost of air conditioning.  The costs to cool and maintain a system over this area is expected to run at £3.15 per hour for supply and extraction”.

Energy Efficient Technologies

MD, Stuart Pearce continues “Government legislations and the pressure of corporate social responsibility on industrial sites, means energy efficient technologies such as evaporative cooling and LED lighting, to name a couple of examples, has never been so important in terms of both carbon reduction and the energy savings made”.

Martin Waller Head of Engineering & Quality – EMEA at Herman Miller commented “The major benefit of this new ventilation is the improvement in the working environment for the operations team due to the zonal control of ventilation and cooling. In addition, there will be a reduction in electricity consumption.
