UK Green Investment Bank to fund energy efficiency projects at Scottish distilleries

The UK Green Investment Bank has revealed plans to invest £5m for energy efficiency projects at Scottish whisky distilleries, a news report in the Scottish business media could reveal.

£2.5m of the money will be used to replace heavy fuel boilers with biomass systems, with the Aberfeldy distillery in Perthshire being among those taking advantage of the funding.

Green Investment Bank group operations director Rob Cormie said: “Projects like this can help distilleries to save money and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. I would encourage other distilleries to install a biomass boiler or other energy saving technology – an investment to make long-term savings and to help to meet the industry’s ambitious green targets.”

The HeatSave thermostatic radiator valves represent some of the easiest to install and most cost-effective energy-saving measures out there, as they enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, home owners are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).

Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.

All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve some pretty impressive savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%.
