Not an open HOME, but built environment energy savings that are well worth viewing - a guided tour of Wye Valley Brewery’s award-winning ‘green’ brewhouse:

Over 40% on-site energy reduction as a result of the new energy efficient brewhouse installation in 2013. Much of the equipment used in the new brewhouse, for example the coppers, has been sourced from within the UK, supporting the national economy and reducing transport impact. The Brewhouse produces 18% of its own clean energy on-site via a 100kW roof-mounted solar array (enough energy to power 20 homes), reducing on-site energy costs and reducing fossil fuel usage. The array already covers roof space equivalent to two tennis courts and a further (ground-mounted) solar PV installation is planned for the future. This has reduced carbon emissions by 48% since 2013 as part of the switch from fuel oil to LPG.

 

To include a talk of the beer-making process using local hops, followed by beer tasting!

Wye Valley Brewery are Gold Sponsors of this year's h.Energy.
