Cenergist Selected for Leeds Decarbonisation Project

Global energy and water services company Cenergist will be delivering a £14 million carbon reduction upgrade to 30 schools, offices and leisure centres under a new partnership with Leeds City Council.


Technologies to be installed at the sites include LED lighting and air source heat pumps, which extract heat from the air to reduce reliance on natural gas and cut carbon emissions, in line with the city's ambitious plans to lower emissions by 4,000 tonnes initially and achieve net-zero by 2030.


The works also include installation of high efficiency water flow controllers which save energy as well as water in buildings.  


Councillor James Lewis, Leader of Leeds City Council, explains: "The decarbonisation project is a great step in the right direction for Leeds. With our aim to halve our own emissions by 2025, it has become increasingly important for us to protect and create hundreds of skilled green jobs in local businesses, as we work to build a sustainable economic recovery.


"Looking to the future and with our partner Cenergist, we are set to achieve significant carbon and energy savings, as well as notable cost reductions and improved backlog maintenance management."


Dan Ludgate, director of Energy Infrastructure at Cenergist, adds: "We are delighted to partner with Leeds City Council to help deliver its ambitious net zero target for 2030. 


"Heat pump and water efficiency technologies will play a key role in meeting  decarbonisation goals and it is great to work with one of the leading local authorities in this area."
