Norwich City is delighted to announce details of a new partnership with RenEnergy.
RenEnergy was founded in 2006 by Damian Baker. They specialise in feasibility, consultancy and installation of solar panel systems for organisations of all sizes, including: businesses, farms, factories, local authorities, transport sites and tourist attractions.
As well as ground and roof solar arrays, the firm has just completed its first solar carport for the Aviva Horizon building, with further Aviva projects to follow.
RenEnergy have installed two roof-mounted systems, with solar panels placed on the roof of the newly-built gym and academy at the Lotus Training Centre. This has maximised the space available to give the greatest energy yield.
While the £5m redevelopment would greatly improve the Club’s training facility, it would also increase the energy demand on a site with an already-high energy load. RenEnergy’s solar panel installation allows the Club to save money on their energy spend by generating their own clean, low carbon electricity.
Sales and Marketing Director at RenEnergy, Tom Lloyd, said: “After successfully completing the solar panel installation at Lotus Training Centre, RenEnergy wanted to support Norwich City further as a sponsor for the 2019-20 season.
“Though we’re a national business, we’re passionate about helping local organisations generate their own clean energy – and what more iconic regional institution than Norwich City? The installation at Lotus Training Centre will generate clean energy for use by the football club, reducing energy spend. As well as being a financially sensible investment, it also demonstrates the club’s corporate commitment to the environment.
“We’re thrilled to see Norwich City in the Premier League, and we wish them the best of luck for the season.”
Chief Operating Officer at Norwich City, Ben Kensell, added: “We are delighted to welcome on board RenEnergy. They have been able to offer us a renewable and long-lasting solution to our energy consumption at the Lotus Training Centre which falls directly in-line with the aim of lowering our carbon footprint.”
