One of the Environment Key Indicators on the CRL project is a reduction of 8% in energy usage. One of the ways CSJV looked into achieving this was through the procurement of a green tariff on the Eleanor Street construction site.
The procurement team investigated a number of suppliers from British Gas and Opus Energy which are the ‘brown’ prices to EDF on their ‘Blue’ tariff, which is nuclear and has zero carbon and Good Energy who are ‘Green’ 100% renewable.
Good Energy’s 100% renewable electricity brand promise is independently assured each year by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), which zero carbon emissions under the Greenhouse Gas emissions reporting. All of their electricity is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs), which is recognised under the European Renewable Energy Directive.
The current annual cost here is £25,614 and the current carbon emission is 41 TCO2e. By procuring Good Energy for the Eleanor street site the estimated cost would be £22,225.70.
