A Northumberland-based energy company that provides ‘hands off’ renewable solutions to UK businesses has been featured in this year’s Parliamentary Review of Energy.

Calibrate Energy Engineering is the only company in the north of the county to be included in this critical Government paper.

Immensely proud of this, the Chatton-based firm, founded by Shane and Susie McDonald, now has big plans to help more businesses in the region and further afield.

Susie said: “We are incredibly proud to be featured in the recent Parliamentary Review of the UK’s energy situation.

“The review focuses on leading energy companies across the whole sector, from nuclear and fossil fuels to sustainable energy and electric-car providers.

“As a featured sustainable-energy company, we hope this will pave the way for us to help more businesses save money and maximise their energy use.

“The North East is a region traditionally associated with fossil-fuel production, so it seems a fitting location for companies involved in providing environmentally-sound energy. Our expert engineers, scientists and consultants are all very excited about the coming months.”

Calibrate Energy Engineering is a leading provider of ground-source heatpump solutions. These intelligent heatpumps harness the natural-energy resources surrounding a building and use them to deliver low-cost, reliable heating and hot water.

The award-winning technology is used successfully by many commercial, high-energy users, from hotel complexes to student accommodation blocks and agricultural facilities including grain drying.

The financial savings are impressive and immediate as for each kilowatt of energy used to run the heatpump, three to four kilowatts of energy are produced.

Hall Garth Hotel and Country Club, in Darlington, for instance, is receiving a 400 per cent return on investment after having the cutting-edge system installed to provide hot water for rooms, radiators, a swimming pool and jacuzzi, as well as heating the pub and gym.

Calibrate says that, as well as financial advantages, using this technology has environmental benefits.
