Hybrid Energy Centre Seminar
Hurley Palmer Flatt recently held a breakfast seminar on hybrid energy centres attended by a variety of developers, Architects, Project Managers and Quantity Surveyors.
The purpose of the event was to present a new approach to deliver energy needs for development projects. We utilise an alternative design philosophy to ensure that capital expenditure and scale of plant deployed is minimised as well as maximising the amount of low carbon energy delivered to a scheme. The approach still considers centralised energy centres to be the most practical and efficient way to deliver power, heating and cooling to a scheme, but also demonstrates how the utilisation of different technologies used within the same energy centre can provide real commercial benefits.
Research Associate, Callum Rae walked attendees through the approach we are now deploying and also showcased our development of the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre to demonstrate how this process has been successfully deployed in practice and the benefits that have been seen from such a scheme.
