Energy Services & Performance Contracting
Breathe Energy has developed and delivered projects with a wide range of technologies across both the public and private sectors. Our approach ensures clients can manage investment risk alongside effective technology and operational delivery.
Building Energy Management
Building management and control is central to achieving and maintaining energy and carbon savings. Our energy management bureau provides clients with a cost-effective, pro-active and measurable solution.
For clients with a significant number of similar sites, we offer a compelling remote energy management service. This includes the installation of smart energy controls to manage lighting, heating, refrigeration and other specialist energy consuming equipment. Each smart controller is linked wirelessly to our 24/7 remote monitoring centre in Manchester where our experienced team of engineers monitor, diagnose and remotely fix abnormal energy usage. We have over 2000 sites under remote control, achieving an average 15% reduction in client’s energy bills. Added benefits include a reduction in maintenance call out charges through the remote fix capability.
Project Development & Investment
Finance and business case management are core to the success of any energy and carbon reduction project. Our approach ensures that finance and technical solutions are co-developed to deliver the right solution for our clients.
We work with the Green Investment Bank to deliver a fully financed project for clients who prefer to retain their scarce capital resources for core business investment. Breathe can deliver a fully financed project, funding from inception through the development cycle until the investment is approved, after which the finance partner fully funds construction of the assets and retains the performance risk for the life of the contract. Clients benefit from:
- a share of the savings
- no capital invested in these assets
- a reduction in lifecycle replacement costs for end of life assets
- full performance risk transfer to the funder
- enhanced staff and client comfort through improved environmental operating conditions
