Green Energy in Pembrokeshire

A small wind turbineGreen energy is back on the agenda for many homes, organisations and businesses across Pembrokeshire in the wake of ever increasing oil prices and fuel costs and also the introduction of subsidies and financial benefits such as the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme and the Feed in Tariffs (FiT) system.

Pembrokeshire itself is situated perfectly for adopting wind energy, being located on the edges of Europe leaving large areas of the county exposed to westerly prevailing winds, which can be efficiently converted by wind turbines to generate renewable electricity.

Solar PV (Photovoltaics)

It is not just wind energy that can be converted efficiently into renewable green energy.  Any south facing building or property with a large roof area can maximise its production of renewable energy through solar PV (Photovoltaics) technology. Solar panels use solar thermal radiation from the sun and convert this energy into solar electricity and also increasingly solar hot water.

Many local buildings and businesses are making the most of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, particularly hotels, leisure complexes and community buildings by installing heat pumps. Heat pumps come in two main forms; ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps work by utilising the geothermal energy in the ground and using that energy to heat a property or building. Air source heat pumps work in a similar way except they extract energy from freely available heat in the air. Both renewable heat sources utilise energy in the local environment and help reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and also reduces carbon emissions.

Many new builds especially from housing associations and sustainable homes now utilise underfloor heating systems as an efficient and clean method of heating a home. For more information on how WDS Green Energy can help with your renewable energy needs please visit the site or contact us.
