A reduction in CO2 emissions and the cost of business travel are among the outcomes of one business’s involvement with Sustainable Routes.

Halliday’s Hydropower is a company dedicated to the generation of renewable electricity, but was in danger of undoing all its hard work until Sustainable Routes intervened.

The Sustainable Routes programme showed the team at Halliday’s Hydropower that by adapting their operational behaviour they could save tonnes of CO2 that they would otherwise emit when travelling from their office to their renewable technology installation at Dandridge’s Mill.

“Before we got involved with Sustainable Routes we had to drive 40 miles to take performance data readings from our renewable technology installation at Dandridge’s Mill luxury apartments,” says Henry Reily-Collins, Technical Director at Halliday’s Hydropower. “This was a huge area of unnecessary travel which has a reverse impact on the 28-plus tonnes of CO2 we save each year from the operation of the site.”

Instead, thanks to the support of Sustainable Routes Halliday’s Hydropower was able to design and install a smart metering interface which allows the company to remotely access performance data from Dandridge Mill.

“Thanks to this we will reduce travel, engineer visits and increase the performance of renewable technologies”, says Henry.
