Providing heat and hot water to domestic buildings currently causes more than 15% of the UK’s carbon dioxide emissions.1 We want to change this.
At ENGIE, we’re confronting this challenge head on. We’re constantly developing innovative heating solutions, laying the foundations for a clean and green future.
Helping you save at home
A quick fire way to reduce your bills and carbon footprint is to reduce your consumption at home. Our ENGIE Control tariff is designed to do just that, and help you take back control of your heating. With a Nest Learning Thermostat™ included, you’ll be able to monitor your heating and never heat an empty home again. Furthermore, by pairing your thermostat with ENGIE Plus, you’ll get even more smart functionality. This system, exclusive to ENGIE customers, allows you to analyse your energy usage in real time, paving the way to even greater savings.
However, with many UK homes still reliant on gas for heating, we know that reducing your environmental impact can be hard. For this reason, we have developed an entirely Green Tariff, with 100% renewable electricity and gas.
Our ground-breaking projects
Our vision for a green future is bold, and unlike many other companies, we’re putting our money where our mouth is. We’re at the forefront of renewable heating innovation and are currently involved in projects all over the world.
In the UK, we’ve helped deliver the UK’s largest Ground Source Heat Pump. This technology utilises the naturally occurring thermal energy stored in the ground and has helped reduce the energy bills and carbon footprint for 400 households. This project was ground-breaking, literally, as it involved drilling boreholes 230m deep, that’s over 50 double decker busses.
We’re also heavily involved in district heating schemes, with over 180 systems worldwide, including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. This district heating scheme, comprised of a biomass boiler and a Combined Heat and Power generator, provides hot water to 3000 homes and businesses, saving 11,000 tonnes of CO2 every year.
