Aberla Renewables has secured a contract to provide energy saving heating solutions which will support Greater Manchester’s pledge to be carbon neutral by 2038.
Aberla will deliver the air source heat pump roll-out for the Greater Manchester partners of the ‘Homes as Energy Systems’ (HaES) project, which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
By enabling a transition to a ‘low carbon’ electricity network in Greater Manchester, HaES will directly support Mayor Andy Burnham’s aspirations for the City Region, namely the pledge to become a carbon neutral city region by 2038.
Paul McCarren, managing director at Aberla, said: “We’re proud to further strengthen our relationships with housing providers, providing specialist expertise in energy solutions. Initiatives such as these not only provide a number of benefits for the end-user but, in turn, are vital in achieving regional and national climate pledges.”
The Warrington-based company, part of the Aberla Group, will be responsible for the design and installation of the ASHP systems, with the installation programme starting across Stockport.
Greater Manchester Green City-region lead and Leader of Trafford Council, Councillor Andrew Western said: “The roll-out of new and innovative energy systems for homes demonstrates the region’s commitment to decarbonising our energy supply. This technology will heat homes whilst reducing the demand on the national grid and will contribute to Greater Manchester’s carbon neutral target.”
Work is expected to be completed by Winter 2020.
