Sustainability Business Breakfast at Wiston House

Amanda Bates, Corporate Services & Compliance Manager, will discuss sustainability initiatives implemented at the historic building and throughout 6,000 acres of surrounding parkland, including:

  • The site’s biomass boiler, fed from wood chip grown on the estate
  • Motion sensor controlled LED lighting
  • Sustainable and ethical procurement
  • Staff engagement, including their Environmental Green Group
  • Water saving measures, such as camel head showers and hippo systems
  • Green energy tariffs

Topic Expert: Renewable Heat

We’ll also hear from industry expert Derrick Pope of Pope Consulting about renewable heat technologies including biomass boilers and heat pumps (ground and air-source). He’ll focus on:

  • How they work and what businesses and premises they suit
  • Installation costs, the Renewable Heat Incentive and typical payback periods
  • Types of biomass fuel, delivery and storage considerations
  • The biomass boiler Pope Consultancy installed at Wiston House in 2007
