City council set to benefit from 15-year energy performance contract

Honeywell, energy performance contract
Peterborough Town Hall is one of eight buildings for which Honeywell is delivering an energy-performance contract.

Honeywell plans to generate energy savings of £163 000 a year, at current usage rates, over the 15-year energy-performance contract from Peterborough City Council from energy-efficiency upgrades to eight facilities. They include the town hall, swimming pools, a leisure centre, a library and a car park. The energy savings are guaranteed by Honeywell, and the upgrades are expected to be completed in about six months.

Measures include upgrades to or replacement of building control systems, an air-handling unit, lighting systems and pool filtration systems. A behaviour-management programme will be supported by the installation of information dashboards in some of the facilities. The council selected the measures to be implemented following a comprehensive engineering analysis by Honeywell of the current energy performance at each facility.

John Harrison, executive director, resources with the city council, said, ‘Implementing appropriate energy-efficiency programmes using energy performance contracts enables us to benefit immediately from the improvements while using future, guaranteed operational saving to reduce capital budget requirements for maintenance and refurbishment. We’re delighted that we’re seeing a real return form this exciting initiative.’
