Energy Technology and Solutions
The team at Thames Energy are passionate about providing affordable energy for all, including a variety of technologies and services.
We offer a professional suite of energy solutions in the following areas:
Contract Energy Management (CEM)
Contract Energy Management is the generic term for various contract arrangements for the purchase of primary fuels, energy saving equipment and associated services, which are financed so the client pays for the improvements over a period of years out of the savings made in energy costs. Energy management and tariff analyses are the link between the more theoretical and practical engineering aspect of energy efficiency works.
Thames Energy offers a comprehensive and flexible service that can be individually tailored to suit our client’s needs. We would initially carry out a preliminary energy audit, check the feasibility of a scheme, design and manage the installation, operation and maintenance of the installation.
We can also consult with the fuel utilities on the client’s behalf to procure best terms. Finance packages can be negotiated to allow the benefit of advanced energy systems such as Combined Heat and Power (CHP) with no capital outlay by the client, see below for more information on CHP.
Energy Monitoring and Targeting
Using computerised monitoring and targeting systems, Thames Energy can track the energy performance of your building and, if required, alert management to appropriate cost-effective energy solutions.
With the privatisation of electricity, gas and water utilities excellent opportunities exist for greater customising of utility services. These range from purchasing strategies to the use and management of utilities. We can also assist by offering advice on bulk gas purchasing, electricity tariff negotiations and water metering.
Electricity Tariffs can be complicated relating not only to how much is used but also to required supply capacity. Thames Energy can analyse and compare 1MW electricity tariffs and undertake dynamic load profiles to advise on power factor correction and the most advantageous tariff applicable for your particular sites.
Combined Heat & Power (CHP)
Thames Energy Limited has been at the forefront of the utilisation of small scale Combined Heat and Power installation, management and maintenance for many years. As industry leaders we can provide comprehensive advice and research into the possibility of integrating this technology into the design and construction process, plus the potential benefits in the reduction of CO2 emissions and energy costs.
We have considerable hands-on experience in Combined Heat and Power Installations and can offer a flexible package from initial feasibility through to design and project management. Our services can also incorporate a Contract Energy Management (CEM) package whereby a CHP engine can be installed at no cost to the client.
Renewable Energy Systems
We can assist our clients select, size, install and operate most types of renewable heat and power generation technologies - from simple Solar PV arrays through to biomass heating, we can help slash carbon emissions and lower energy bills.
As part of this service, we can also help manage the identification and application of suitable financial incentives such as the Feed-in Tariff (FiT), Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs).
