Energy Statement: Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds
Energy Evaluation were instructed by Jaynic to produce an energy statement as part of the proposal for a business park. The scheme is located on a total area of approximately 70 hectares designated for employment and related development. The Concept Statement for the development included the requirement that a minmum of 20% of the site’s energy requirement should be generated from renewable sources including a minimum of 10% sources within the business park site as a whole.
EDSL Tas (Dynamic Simulation) was used to provide the preliminary calculations for energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The results indicated a total annual CO2 emissions for the site of 3,800,000 kg of CO2. If 15% were to be recovered through photovoltaics this would amount to 1,394 kWp at a cost of in the order of £2.6million. NB Good design techniques could reduce this PV requirement to £1.7million a saving of £900,000 across the development.
