Energy & Water Master Planning

  • For any large scale organisation, security of vital utility supplies and their capacity to meet increasing demand are essential. This is especially important where any developments are planned at the site in terms of expansion.
  • Large complex organisation should have an overall long-term Development Master Plan for the site and underpinning that should be an Energy & Water Master Plan which should examine in detail the projected utility demands over the lifespan of the Development Plan to determine what if any additional utility capacities will be required to meet the demands of the growth plans.

  • This is of particular importance where existing supplies are constrained and it may be necessary to develop additional onsite energy generation assets and/or introduce water recycling/water treatment technologies to offset the increased demand.
  • This is especially important for any planned new developments to determine constraints with utility infrastructure and to map out how these should be developed over time matched to the build out plan of each phase of the development
  • With a combined total of over 50 years’ experience in energy and waste management, the Synergie Environ team can assist with all stages of strategy development and its subsequent implementation.

Synergie Environ have extensive experience at modelling energy demands associated with power, heat and cooling of existing and planned developments that have comprised a variety of residential, public, commercial and industrial sites.

Projected energy demands have been used to model the potential constraints which there may be on existing energy networks (electricity and natural gas) and how limitations in existing energy supply networks could be addressed by reducing energy consumption within the proposed developments and the supply of a proportion of the site’s energy needs from renewable and low carbon energy generation technologies.

We have a proven track record at the identification and appraisal of practical and innovative opportunities to generate power, heat and cooling on-site from combinations of renewable and low carbon energy generation technologies. These have included combinations of solar, biomass, cogeneration of heat, power and cooling using renewable biomethane, anaerobic digestion, water and geothermal source heat pumps. Our work consistently focuses on the practical and realistic and all projects have included detailed cash flow and greenhouse gas emission forecasts compared to agreed business as usual scenarios over defined timescales (typically 25 to 40-years).
