Harnessing power from renewable technology
Trident has partnered with a number of independent providers of renewable technologies to help our customers take further control of their energy management strategy and support their Net Zero objectives.
Our sustainability, engineering and compliance team have extensive expertise in on-site generation projects, across many industry sectors. Together, they will ensure you take a fully informed and cost effective route to installing a successful project, considering technical, economic, legal, operational, schedule, market, resource and financial aspects.
Combined Heat & Power (CHP)
CHP captures waste heat produced during electricity generation from a gas generator, which then uses it to power heating, cooling, hot water and industrial processes. CHP systems are ideal for sites that need electricity and thermal energy including industrial estates and commercial buildings.
Solar PV is a reliable and sustainable resource that can help reduce reliance on the National Grid and save money on electricity bills. Panels are more efficient and subsidy-free CAPEX models are currently showing 3-4 year paybacks due to rising energy costs.
Wind energy is a clean, renewable source of electricity. If businesses have enough space, they can generate their own electricity using onsite wind turbines. Reducing your dependence on grid power can help reduce your energy costs by avoiding fluctuations in commodity and non-commodity prices.
Air Source Heat Pump
An air source heat pump, also known as an air-to-water source heat pump, takes heat from the outside air and raises it to a higher temperature using a compressor. Air source heat pumps are an efficient, low carbon and renewable heat source.
Ground Source Heat Pump
A ground source heat pump is a renewable heating system that collects and transfers geothermal heat stored in the ground and distributes it to radiators or underfloor heating at your premises.
Waste Heat to Energy (WtE)
Energy from waste plants, including Anaerobic Digestion, is ideal for utilising waste streams and generating low-carbon electricity for use on-site. WtE systems capture the waste heat from existing processes and convert it into power or thermal units. This offers significant carbon reduction potential across numerous sectors.
